Changing Roles!


This month last year I was Mother of the Beautiful Bride, and now I am Mother of the Handsome Groom!!  This past weekend my eldest son got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend of five years to be his wife…ahhhhhhh!  They went to high school together….college together….and now they will start a new life…together.
Yes, there were spies!!
I love her mom (a reader of this blog) and her whole family, so what better way to start than to all go look at a wedding venue.  As I showed you last year, San Antonio has some fabulous wedding venues, in the city and throughout the neighboring Texas Hill Country.  We went to the beautiful LOST MISSION.

It was beautiful with old San Antonio charm, hill country setting, and one venue with a charming chapel and substantial party room.  I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the pictures…maybe they will let me go dress shopping with them, and I can show you the rejects…have to protect the winning dress!!  One venue down and many to go!


We are  so excited to welcome this sweet beautiful young lady into our family!

Mother of the Bride and Bride!
Have a Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Live it with JOY!!

  14. LADIES! I have to set the record straight...I was not the spy! I did not mean to imply that I was...three of their friends from high school were hiding out nearby and one took this picture!! I promise it was not me, but their friends! It is a sweet picture!!
