My oldest daughter gets married in 3 days. Although we’ve been planning the wedding for over a year, I feel like it’s all happening quite suddenly. I’ve been so busy taking care of details for the wedding and now that things are winding down and things are done, the feels are starting to sink in.
I still remember that feeling over 25 years ago, holding Haley in my arms for the first time. That overwhelming feeling of love; I knew my life would no longer be the same. My life centered around that beautiful little girl from that moment.
Now, in what seems like a flash of a moment, she is all grown up and starting a new chapter of her life.
And so am I. I’ll be the mother of the bride. I’ll be a mother-in-law. One day, I’ll be a grandma.
Whoa, whoa. Slow down just a second. I’m not old enough to be any of those things. Right?
It seems that I’ve been a bit stuck in a time warp recently and this new site has been part of the journey of getting out of that rut, accepting this new chapter in my life, embracing it, and soaking it all in.
Deep breath. Savor every second of what’s about to come. Thank goodness a photographer will be there at the wedding to catch moments because I’m sure it will all be a blur.
