One Of Fourteen

In 2013 Jay and I went to a beautiful convalidation {when the Catholic church “convalidates” a civil marriage} in April, an emotional vow renewal in July, a tropical 25th wedding anniversary in October and a gorgeous wedding on a sunny afternoon in November.

Each one was sacred and an honor to attend. All these precious couples are from different seasons/decades/times of our lives and I love that, even through the miles, we can come together to celebrate the beauty of marriage at one stage or another.

I adore weddings. I adore being IN weddings.

It’s been well over 10 years since I stood up in a wedding and was part of the bridal party.

Just days into 2014 we received the official news of my brother-in-law’s engagement to his sweetest girl, Anuja. We knew it was coming and I got tired of giving him a hard time!

Well, it looks like this year will be a very exciting year for our family….all four of us will be in the wedding ~ Jay the best man, Elliott a flower girl, Holden a ring bearer and I will be one of FOURTEEN bridesmaids.

Yes, 14. So exciting!

The big day is in late July and we couldn’t be happier. Our summer will be complete with this monumental milestone of welcoming a new member into the Aspiras Family!

Needless to say, I am in planning mode and the first thing I need to do is go order my dress.

“Punch” is the color and this is the style I chose…


On the hunt for silver shoes…

So glad Lent is about a week away. I need lots of discipline for the next 5 months. Hoping the seven weeks leading up to Easter will pave the way for healthier choices and increased activity to take better care of the temple.

Always a struggle, but it’s good to have a goal and something to look forward to.

Happy Wednesday!
