love was in that mountain air

popping in to share some news----my daughter robyn is engaged to dillon!!--i told you i thought he was the one :)

we attended a family wedding in the mountains over the weekend----it was held in the town where dillon grew up and he still has family there-----he proposed in an old building in a park he remembers playing in so much as a child-----it was really quite sweet----

the wedding was for my "dil" kelli's sister---it was so beautiful and had so many personal touches that made it all about the special couple----my son colin and his "bil"  were ushers--- kelli and her sister were maids of honor---colin and kelli's two girls, my granddaughter's were flower girls--the wedding was outside, in a small concert area--the lovely reception was in an old barn--very unique and meaningful----

i love weddings where the couple just goes for it--whether it be traditional or way out there---they should do what they have in mind--

i have done several weddings for daughters of friends and family members---i once even tried to start a wedding business with a friend----i was sure when robyn got married, that i would have all kinds of ideas for it--but you know, i don't

i am so at peace about her being married ---i am looking forward to all of it, but you know---part of what i am looking forward to is to see what twists and turns the planning may take----i hope they put love and thought into their day-----kelli would be happy to know, that i don't even care what music they have---haha, sorry--inside joke :)

honestly i probably should admit, that some of this serenity and calm may derive from the fact being how much alike robyn and i are---



other news, my aunt alice is still here with us--i cannot believe she is still living----part of me worries that she may not be getting the pain relief she needs-----i hope that is not true--


hmmmmmm, let's see what else-----lots of thoughts about life etc.---no real direction or desires--but feeling better--

i had a dream the other night that i started doing dramas again at church---president obama  was a member of my church and insisted he wanted the starring role in the play--he was delightful, but it kinda freaked me out---especially since i was writing the play and already had someone in mind for the lead role----the stress i felt in the dream, made me think i am not ready to start that up again!

oh, just to let you know---i have appreciated all of the nice encouraging comments i have received on my different poetry writings---i have told you, that poetry is my true love in writing and i plan to do more of it---:)

  2. Congratulations to your daughter on her engagement..such a special way for him to propose.

    I do enjoy your poetry, it is very good. I remember the first time I read it, I went looking for the author at the bottom but then realized it was "YOU"..yeah!!

    What a coincidence that you had a stressful dream about Obama...I have those almost every night.

    I will remember you and your Aunt in my prayers..it is so hard to think that our loved ones may be in pain. xo

  13. Weddings are my most favorite thing in the whole world. I always cry, and I think it's because people are at their most beautiful and (usually) most well behaved at weddings.

What a funny dream you had; it must be something in the air because a few nights ago I had a dream and Mr. Romney was in it, LOL.

  20. Congrats to your girl! It's so nice when you feel good about the guy. :-) I hope they have a wonderful time planning the wedding. I chuckled at your dream about Obama wanting to be in your church play. If he doesn't have anything to do come January, maybe you should invite him to church and see what happens. :-)

  23. YEAH!!!

    I just finished altering a dress for a girl for her wedding in two weeks... she's technically already married, but they are having the big wedding now (two years after the kids came) and my cousin's getting married on Sat. It's a big production, and I hope it's everything she wants... but from where I am sitting, I am fixing one big margarita and watching how it all falls out.

    Sadly, the details will likely not make it to the blog as her mom reads... but trust me... it's gonna be... interesting.
