My son's wedding was on Saturday, and it went beautifully! We had a perfect day - 80 and sunny. Really unusual weather for northern Minnesota this lat in the season, so we were very fortunate. It was an outdoor wedding, at the top of our ski hill, with beautiful views of Lake Superior. Many people told me it was the nicest wedding they had been to; a beautiful service, great food, and a nice reception. We caught up with a lot of friends and relatives, and really enjoyed the whole day and evening.
I didn't make it to my ultimate weight goal for the wedding, but at 145, I felt SO much better than I would have if the wedding had been a few years ago and I was 182! I was close enough to my goal that I felt good, and it seemed that people really meant it when they said I looked good. The right dress helped, and all of my family helped me make that decision, so I felt it was flattering. And it was black, which helps!
Now my son and his new bride are on their honeymoon, and I have a week off to relax and get our lives back to normal. We've focused on this wedding for so long, it's a relief to think of other things again! I look forward to getting the pictures and remembering their beautiful day, and the beginning of my son's new life with his beautiful wife!
