Wedding Bells…

What an emotional, wonderfully great last week.  How can parents have such a wide array of feelings?  So happy for the next step of their lives but mixed with a twinge of sadness.

All too soon the evening came to a close and the new married couple drove away…

The day seemed sort of like a fuzzy dream.  Totally wonderful but in the same thought how did it come to this so soon.  Very surreal.   It was just yesterday…

The boys started moving into his room and found a couple of treasures…

A blanky with only two corners of silky left on it. A blanky a boy carried with him everywhere and was the ultimate comforter…

His little Teddy that followed him everywhere…

 

How can a mommy go from crying tears of pure happiness and being excited for her boy and his wonderful new wife to crying tears of remembrance all in the same minute?

Couldn’t help but think of the day our first-born son will start this same journey…bittersweet for sure! I’ll never forget meeting sweet Sawyer for the first time, as a tiny bundle.
