Slice of Life Tuesday is a weekly writing challenge posted at “Two Writing Teachers”. There is a very supportive community there as well – join in the fun.
I am entering new territory. Last week my daughter got engaged, wo I will soon be the mother of the bride.
I have been a bride twice, twenty years apart. Both times I paid for and planned the weddings.
Now, my daughter begins to plan for her wedding next June.
They are planning in earnest already. They quickly found out though that there were no venues available on a Saturday from March through September. It means they will probably get married on a Friday and possibly at a Niagara winery.
She has already asked me to go with her to look for her wedding dress next week. I am honoured. She wants me to walk her down the aisle – another honour. For my first wedding, my mother walked me down the aisle as my father had died ten years before. For my second wedding, my daughter was my maid of honour and my 2 sons walked me down the aisle. My husband’s three children and grandchildren were involved as well.
So now I have some planning to do myself and look at my obligations and what I’d like to do for my daughter and her fiancé.
