Final Fitting

My parents came for a visit today. My step-dad brought us a trunk full of wood, a gentle reminder that while summer has been shy this year, winter will soon be upon us. My mom brought my dress, wedding dress that is. I've tried it on a few times through it's stages and today was the final try on without any pins holding part of it in place. We're both quite pleased with how it turned out. My mom had her doubts at the beginning, but she persevered and I'm glad she did. Here's a peek...


The best part about my mom making the dress is having enjoyed my parents visiting as often as they have the last couple of months. We live almost two hours apart and we don't see each other as often as we would like. I've enjoyed spending a few hours on Saturday mornings, chatting with my mom over a cup of coffee and a yummy baked good. I take her out to the garden so she can check on it's progress. Boy, was she surprised this week! While we're doing all that fun stuff my dad takes the kids golfing. It's a sport they are pretty keen on this summer and they enjoy spending time with their granddad. I have to admit, while I look forward to the wedding, I'm sad to see our Saturday morning fittings come to an end.

My mom and I enjoyed a newfound closeness too while planning my wedding. It is sad to see that "excuse" to get together end! The peek at your dress is so exciting!! It looks absolutely gorgeous.

OOOhh, that dress is going to be fabulous! I'm getting so anxious - you'd think I was going to be there in person :) I'm happy you've had the extra visits with your parents. Visits with my parents always make me happy as well, and I hope that somehow the visits will continue for you even after the big day is behind you. Thanks so much for sharing this special excitement - love it!! -tammy

Oh, I am in love with that "peek" of a dress! I am so excited for you both. What is the exact date? I think I missed that and I am a "need to know" kinda girl :)

Blessings, Misha
