Two Months Later
October 25, 2017 7:38pm CST
Just two months ago today our son got married. Just to paint you a picture of our day. It was the last hot day of the season, the very next day we had a cool down and the weather hasn't rebounded to those daytime highs since. We teased him that it felt like Christmas in August. We were getting the best gift ever-a wonderful and loving daughter-in-law, and the satisfaction of seeing him, our beloved baby boy, happily marry the love of his life. Yeah, that about paints the picture. Very emotional. And still 2 months later we are all over the moon about being in the same family. ~Picture is min of my hubby and son

Maybe in time she'll change her ways. Sometimes it takes a big life event for someone to realize how blessed they are to have the people that they do in their lives. Klaudia took a long time to warm up to my husband, but her father lives in another country since her parents divorced, so she really had little use for father-figures. My husband and her share a very special bond now.

@1creekgirl Our son has filled the shoes as the "man" of the house, and now he has that wife to share it with. He's so independent and has such a strong will, but seeing that wedding band on his finger, it just makes me giggle-that's my little boy!

That is a happy occasion. I don't know how I will react when my my gets married one day. I am sure I will feel a loss, but all in all, he will be starting a family. He is not that age yet, but one day he will be. I am sure your son will have a wonderful life.
I didn't feel a loss, just a huge abundance of joy and love. As a parent you always have secret hopes and aspirations for your children, what you'd like to see them as, and he is so much in love with her, and her with him. And they are such a delight together or individually on their own. When he married, I felt my heart open as I was blessed to have a sweet and caring young woman come into our family as our daughter-in-law. And my heart pounds stronger knowing that our son has made such a great choice for the rest of his life.
@fishtiger58 All in time. As a parent there are qualities that we hope that our sons will find in their true love, our son found all of that but also someone who giggles. And in a household where I'm the only girl (like you are at your place) having someone giggle is SO welcomed!
Thank you. I have some nice pictures on my old phone and I will have to buy a card to transfer them onto it and then onto the computer because the professional pictures from the photographer are not finished as of yet. They are still going to be a few weeks. We are lucky to have someone so loving and great as the newest addition to our family, and we know that, and we're so very thankful.
Thank you. I like that picture, I can see the warmth and love in it. I think that we're very blessed to have such a kind-hearted, intelligent and fun-loving daughter-in-law. And she giggles! That's a huge bonus in a household where I was the only female and therefore the only giggler.
