Hi my friends!

Well, they are both married now . . .

It is a rather odd feeling, both of my children married, a good feeling but odd none the less.

Everything was beautiful, well . . . the weather wasn't, but inside the country club it was beautiful.  Jill and her Mom made most of the decorations and I don't see how they did it all with only three weeks!  It was a fun difference from most weddings in that Jill had a "bride's man" and Justin had a "groom's woman".  Jill has a dear friend who's a guy but she didn't really want Justin to have him be a groom's man, so he was on Jill's side and Justin had Sarah on his side.

Here is a link to where I've posted my photos:


They are not the usual as Jill's Dad and another friend of theirs were taking the formal and more usual photos, so I mostly took mine from the side and such.  I'll put up some of theirs when I get them so you can see how I looked.  The only picture of me in this batch is the back of my head to show my wee braids.

Hopefully I'll be able to settle myself a bit now and get some writing done.  Golden and I are hoping to get The Blessing done no later than the end of June.  I'm also going to be going to a fiddle camp (for adult fiddlers) the second weekend in May :-)  I'll be learning from Megan Lynch and Barbara Lamb both nationally know fiddlers.  Megan has been National Champion 6 times.

I hope everyone is well and able to enjoy life!

Hugs and Love,

Aw, thank you, MysteriousWays!

Jill was stunning enough before she lost her weight, but now - Sophia Loren is right!

Hugs back :-)

Yay for happy wedding! I love the "bride's man" and "groom's woman", how creative!

Hi shirebound :-)

It was a really fun touch. I don't think the "bride's man" got the same gift as the rest of the bride's party, but Sarah did get what the rest of the groom's party got - and engraved flask. LOL

Congratulations to your son and his bride!

And in spite of it being a joyous occasion, I know it also has to be a big weight off of your shoulders.

Thank you, dreamflower!

It is, even though I didn't have near as much involvement as I did with Sarah's wedding. *big sigh*

Glad you enjoyed them Christopher :-)

I'm really looking forward to the camp. It's in rural Tennessee and the info says we even get to do some hiking :-)

Take care of yourself!

Congratulations, and what a great accomplishment!

Which fiddle camp are you going to?

Yes, they really did a fantastic job.

I'm going to a fairly new camp that is actually run by Megan Lynch - I just now noticed I didn't say that before *embarrassed blushing* I think it might be at her home in TN. You can have a look here:


scroll down a bit to the FiddleStar Adult Camp.

Cool - never heard of that one before. Have fun!

When I went to 4th Grade Camp, we had to sing before meals.

I'll let you know if we have to fiddle for out meals :-)
