Very nice--my daughter just got married, too, and you portrayed very well the range of emotions of the mother of the bride.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Beth. My own daughters are only 4 & 5 and I'm already teary over the prospect of facing this very situation down the road.

Beautiful entry!
Oh, Beth, what beautifully written sentiments straight from a loving mother's heart! I love the bittersweet tone of this piece. One of my favorite lines: "A week from now only a memory will fill the spot in front of my refrigerator where she speaks." Beautiful.
Oh this was such a sweet tale of the emptying of the nest! I clung to every word! Thanks for sharing, Beth! I hope your daughter's wedding goes splendidly!

Dear Beth, as I mentioned on the Boards, this story means even more after seeing the photos of your beautiful daughter on her special day. But that's not the only reason I wanted to leave you a message - I also wanted to let you know that you were in the semi-finals for the Bon Voyage Challenge and placed 11th overall (that's across all levels). So well done! Love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
