Because I Can

My mom used to put on her wedding dress on anniversaries and we LOVED it! I'm not sure I'll fit into it by that time (May) so I put it on now. I'm lighter than I was when we got married, solely due to my thryoid, so it fits wonderfully.

Kai loved it. I had to put it on twice yesterday for him:)
My dad is getting married tomorrow. For those that don't know, my mom passed away 3.5 years ago. I'm happy for them and know they will have a fabulous weekend. I have to say that my hormones are pretty crazy these days so who knows how I'll be. I'll be honest, it's easier not to ever think of my mom. Isn't that sad? Someone that I love so much, I choose not to think of. If I do think of her, it's just overwhelmingly sad.
Kai is bringing something fun down the aisle so let's hope he does a good job. There's no rehearsal so we will see!


  1. Oh yes, the wedding dress. nice that you can fit it for sure! I remember dad used to wear his plaid suit too - where is gary's suit?

  2. my mom did (does? I don't know anymore) the same thing as we were growing up. i've tried to, but it's hard when you're pregnant or have very recently had a baby :) i hope this year it'll fit!
    hope your weekend goes well - can imagine the mix of emotions!

  3. How fun to be able to wear your dress! (I'm not even sure where mine is!?) Will pray for you in regards to the wedding. I can see how it would be tough.

  4. Thanks so much for the advice, Louise; I really appreciate it. By the way you look fantastic in your wedding dress! Not everyone is able to get back in it and take pictures with their kids :) (and yes, I realize the thyroid issue may not be the way you wanted to get back into it, but you do look wonderful, none-the-less!)

  5. Looking good!! Great tradition!

    I hope the wedding went well.
