My Absence – And my excuse

A wedding

I’ve been absent for a while, but I think you will understand why. There was a wedding! My one and only daughter has married a wonderful young man. The wedding lasted one day, but the celebration has lasted for two weeks. It was a great excuse to get friends and family together from England. Almost time for everyone to leave, but the memories will linger, so will the love.

A June Wedding!

I sit here this morning, tired but with a smile,

I’ve had no time to myself for quite a long while,

The date approaches when my daughter will be wed,

RSVP’s and caterers are running around in my head,

The day will be perfect, I know that’s the case,

But these last few weeks feel like a desperate race,

The day approaches when guests will arrive,

By air, by bus, and some may just drive,

In Estes Park my daughter will stand with her groom,

Like the flowers, their love will continue to bloom.

Yes its June, the month of Romance and Weddings so I thought I would share some photographs with you. My only daughter gets married in June of  next year at the beautiful Della Terra Mountain Chateau.

As I do my research, I thought I would share some information. It may be just what you need.

Cakes have changed a little, but it's growing on me.

So many decisions to make, but so much fun making them, but wait, its my daughter’s wedding not mine. I am the person who pays for it all.


It’s time to get my novel finished and make some money

Love and Marriage – The Wedding

It had to happen eventually, I have a beautiful daughter, and one day she had to get married. I’ve thought about it, dreamed about it, dreaded it and longed for it and now its going to happen.

The event is planned for summer 2014 and will happen somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, most likely Estes Park. There are so many beautiful places to choose from.


On the left is the enchanting Della Terra Mountain Chateau. Who wouldn’t want to get married here?

Look at this fabulous view from Taharaa Mountain Lodge. (below)


For then next eighteen months I will need to forget the $$$$ and concentrate on the best place to make beautiful wedding day memories.

I am at the beginning of the wedding planning journey with a lot to learn, but looking forward to the experience and eager to make it a memorable day.

To love!


Lets put our glasses together, and drink to the happy couple and the start of a new adventure.
