Something Blue . . .

My girl has her own style, her own spin on life, her own way of looking at things. She loves the Lord, loves her family, loves her new husband. She's a bit of a loner and seeks solitude and quiet when needing to recharge or work through the tough things in life. She is fiercely loyal and a non-conformist by nature. As a rule, she does not let what others say and do dictate what she says, does and believes. 

And so, this girl of mine did NOT wear or carry something blue when she walked down the aisle on Sunday. 

I love you, my girl!
But there has still been plenty of 'blue' around here. While we are all very happy for her, and excited for her, and pray for her and cheer for her, we miss her. Mixed emotions. We are all working hard to see the 'rosy' things in her new life with Stephen amidst the 'blue' that comes with missing her. 

 Crazy, isn't it, that I've been posting about this big wedding in our family and have no photos of the big event to share? The bride and groom whisked off on their honeymoon trip straight from the reception and until they have seen the photos, I think I should hold off. Once they return home and I have permission from the photographer, you can rest assured, I'll be sharing plenty!

And so, to wrap up this little wedding poem series, you can click on each line below to view previous posts:

Something old,
Something new,
Something borrowed,
Something blue.

And how about you? Did you follow this age-old tradition? I even put a 'penny in my shoe'! (When I told that to Caitlin, she rolled her eyes at me and sighed, "Mo-o-o-om!" so I dropped the subject.)

  1. I can't wait to share our daughter's wedding day with her...ok, I can wait...she is only 8, but I look forward to that day. I look forward to seeing pictures. I'm sure it is a bittersweet relief to have the day behind you.

    1. Ah, yes, I remember when my daughter was only 8, seems like yesterday! Thank you for your sweet comment, Stacie. Enjoy these days, and enjoy the adventure to come. Each phase of life brings mixed emotions, that isn't a bad thing, makes life exciting! I'm grateful for it all. I'm still waiting for pics - they should be coming soon.
