Bonding in girl land


Today was a really good day in “girl land” at my house.  My son is engaged to a very sweet girl named Becca. They’ve been together for 5 years now and are making plans for a summer 2013 wedding. My daughter is a bridal consultant for a local store here in Cincinnati. And today was bridal gown shopping day. For me it was a double blessing to be shopping with my soon to be daughter-in-law and doing so with the help of my daughter, the expert.

We had so much fun! Amidst a flurry of satin, taffeta, sparkles and flowers, there were giggles as we went through the process. And a few extra laughs as we witnessed the process for other brides. Part of the fun for me was seeing my daughter in her element and with so much confidence and poise as she helped with the selection. But the best part was watching Becca go from nervous and shy at first, to confident and sure of her choice in the end. Her face lit up a bit brighter when she knew she had found “the one.” Of course, there were just few tears on my end looking at her knowing how gorgeous she felt and how lovely she’ll be on their special day. Yes, it was a wonderful bonding moment in “girl land.”

I wish you happy bonding moments with your loved ones. Be blessed!

Gigglefest!!


It is a well documented fact that a good, hearty laugh is good for your health. Between the endorphins and the internal organ exercise from the belly laugh, it’s all a very good thing. And tonight that’s exactly what I had. I was sitting in my room with my daughter just watching TV and playing some games. When I looked up I saw my dog standing in the corner with her nose on the wall. I could not help having a good, hard, laugh out loud gigglefest. I couldn’t stop laughing, even to the point when I couldn’t breathe and yes, there was a brief snort in there. Apparently little Gracie had put herself in a time out. What a cute little dog and what much-needed laugh!

Here’s a laugh you won’t be able to resist – I double dog dare you not to join in. Giggle and be blessed!
