A Wedding Kind of Day

My sweet son is married!    

This little boy, whose cheeks I've kissed a million times, who has brought me immeasurable joy as a mother; 

Grew up, and got married.

 It's still sinking in- and I don't know that I'll ever get used to my babies growing up, but it's so wonderful to see your children so blissfully happy!

  This has been an eventful October and the absolute highlight was the beautiful wedding of my son and his lovely wife.  

Amazing day, gorgeous weather and family and friends to enjoy.  Perfect. 

Here are photos from this special day.

My sweet granddaughter tells me all the time, "You my Grandmamie!"  
"Yes, I am," I proudly respond.
She then reminds her Grandpa that he's hers as well. 
  We grin at eachother and eat. it. up.

There's nothing like being claimed by a cute kid that you're theirs. 

Same cutie this morning asked if she could draw.  She's fascinated by my colorful post-its.  
I gave her one and a pen.  She then asked, "Um, Mamie, what should I draw?"
I replied, "I don't know, how about a pretty girl?"
"Noooo," she says...."I'm gonna draw you."
She then proceeded to draw me.   Swallowing my pride, I thanked her profusely and now have my 'portrait' hanging from my monitor to admire.  :)

Amazing Skies!

Where I live, the skies are simply amazing.
While at times I may long for forests and gurgling streams- I know that what I do have is such a gift.

I photographed these skies over the past three months:

Late Summer Morning

Early mornings are my favorite time of day.  Here's why:

I love my Dyson vacuum!  After 25 years of putting numerous vacuums to the test (and we are  hard on them), over the past 9 years, the Dyson has won my heart, hands down.


What I never imagined, 25 years ago when I married; was that one fine summer day I'd be vacuuming in new heels- channeling the Ozzie and Harriet-style 1950's housewife- (actually, trying to break them in before my sister's wedding next week) and maneuvering around Winnie the hamster, who seems to be following me.   Life is funny.
