Flower Girls?

My multi-talented, quilting, self-reliant M-I-L is getting married! We are all so happy for her. I think she was nervous to announce this news to her children. My S-I-L and I although delighted said please don't ask us to be the flowers girls! S-I-L wrote a wondeful piece on her mom's second marriage - Heavy heart lightens with a late-life beau.

That is absolutely lovely. What a talented writer you SIL is! Very touching.

This is absolutely the sweetest story. This is the kind of story I need to read when I'm starting my day. Puts me in the very best frame of mind. I love when people come together in this way. So happy for your MIL. And your SIL?, what can I say, what a sweetly touching story filled with so much love.

And last, but not least, the photo of the 'flowergirls' - absolutely the cutest!

Congratulations to your MIL! How wonderful to find love and companionship a second time around. I don't know, if it were me, that picture of you and your SIL as flowergirls would make it really hard not to beg you two to be flowergirls.

Best wishes to your MIL. Lovely story.

OMG, Kim, I just love what you can do with Photoshop. You crack me up!

Aiyeee! Now I DO want to be a flower girl! One of my soon-to-be S-I-Ls just sent a lovely e-mail saying they applied for the marriage license yesterday. (Thanks for all the compliments, everyone, but if you knew the writer's block I'm having right now on my next column....)

awwww...come on now! see what a cute flower girl you would make--all ruffles and bows...

OMG, my SIL left me a message ;0
Yes, she is a wonderul, sensitive writer! And I love reading her stuff. :) And she is pretty too. Ok, we could hook up with some of those dresses and be flower girls if you want.

seems Call Bob has been able to fix more than broken toasters, etc. Congratulations to them both and to you all.

oh you make lovely flower girls! Had you M-I-L seen this picture, she would have insisted that you two attend.. looking just as you do here. Adorable!
The piece your S-I-L wrote brought tears to my eyes. I remember the day my 85 year old uncle married after dear aunt Bud passed away. He danced with a cane in each hand, his new bride at his side and a grin on his face. Sweeet. And yes.. hello from kent!
