Something to Celebrate

I did it! I managed to keep a secret for a few minutes until my daughter and her fiancee could deliver their news in person to all of their parents. My daughter is getting married. She will be the first of our next generation to do so just as I was in my family.

When you hold your baby in your arms you get momentary flash forwards -- first steps; graduations; boyfriends; marriage; and more. It's hard for me to fathom that we have arrived at one of those flash forwards. Her voice on the other end of the phone was so solemn and quiet I starting wondering if she was going to tell me that I was going to be a grandmother. That news if it ever comes will have to wait.

Right now we have a wedding to plan and considering that the family alone (9 parents and 9 grandparents to start with) comes close to 80, we're going to need alot of party hats.

My baby is getting married and I only have a few months to impart my volume of marriage advice ... starting with to always kiss one another good night! Muah!


  1. congratulations mama!! and to the happy couple!! yay for love!

  2. Wow! Great news, indeed.. congrats to the happy couple :)

    Loved your Autumnal visit to the cottage too, by the way - I'm all for the cliche of nature being a true soul revitaliser!!

  3. Let the celebrations begin and a big 'muah' to you my DIH.... or 'MOB' , recently bestowed to me by you and I am now transferring 'the hat' with much love.
