Last month we had a big pretty big event happen in our family. One month ago today, my oldest son got married, and we gained a daughter-in-love! They had such a beautiful ceremony that was full of love and reminders of how God’s design for marriage comes together beautifully when you place Him first in your relationship.
There was planning, presents, and dress shopping, not to mention the showers–oh so many bridal showers! Their house is sufficiently decorated now, and it’s so cute. It’s been twenty-seven years since I got married, so it was fun to see how the trends have changed in that time. (And it’s changed a lot). It’s been so fun to see all the details of the past seven months come together, but it’s over in the blink of an eye.
It’s definitely wedding season–at least for me. My oldest kids are at an age where many of their friends are starting to get married or get engaged. Almost every month this spring, summer, and fall, there is a wedding to attend. April through October are popular wedding months. My daughter works at a wedding venue, and there are two to three weddings each weekend during those months. They stay busy for sure!
All the talk about love has inspired me to hop back into my work in progress. Honestly, I’ve been so busy the past year between wedding planning, work, and my daughter’s sports I haven’t written much. But that’s changing now, and thankfully I’ve been writing a little more each week. I guess all the talk about love has given me lots of inspiration!
What’s on your reading list this summer? I’d love for you to leave your book recommendations or TBR in the comments. Reading is always a great inspiration for writing.
PS… I couldn’t talk about the wedding without sharing at least one photo from the beautiful day. We’re still waiting on pictures, but we did get a few sneak peeks from the photographer.
