Here comes the bride...

The wedding was beautiful, the day was beautiful, the bride was beautiful.
Justin and Ashley (Nana's girl)

After the bride and groom danced, it was Papa Bill's turn. Ashley chose a song that they used to dance to when she was four years old, Little Bitty Pretty One...and you should have seen them spin and fast dance to that 1950's hit. I cried remembering how he used to spin her and make her giggle when she was little girl. It really was a night of old memories and a time for creating new ones.

What a pretty bride Ashley was. Seeing a granddaughter get married is proof that you were successful as a parent, because your child's little girl is now an adult...

I hope to soon see a photo or two of how stunning Nana was--if not on your blog, at least at a WWWP meeting?

And your bit about Bill made me wonder...What about a story about Bill serving as "parent" at times over the years? So many step-parents do a marvelous job of filling in as a parent, even though it is a tenuous position as well as sometimes thankless.

Think about it...
