Helping to plan my only daughter's wedding has been such a labor of love for me. I am retired, and a creative being by nature, so I have enjoyed doing a lot of diy projects for her september wedding. I have gotten a lot of inspiration from many of the girls here on this board,, and for that I am thankful. Through reading the posts daily, I feel that I have gotten to know many of the names and the person associated with each name. What a compassionate, caring group of women!!
Katie and her fiance eddie were married under the oak tree in our front yard. It is the 3rd largest white oak tree in the state of Ohio, and is over 400 years old. It still has katie's childhood tire swing hanging from it. It was a beautiful 75 degree day, not a cloud in the sky. I was overcome with joy as I watched my only child marry the man she loved in front of friends and family. At the end of the ceremony as they were repeating their vows, 2 butterflies were flitting around their heads. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day..for Katie and Eddie. I was so blessed!!!
