To be able to remember the good times is one of main reasons I scrapbook. My niece was getting married and DD1 was one of her bridesmaids. We were planning the bridal shower and just were having the hardest time finding a weekend that would work for everyone involved. So we came up with the weekend before the wedding for the shower. My little sister (mother of the bride) and her husband live 6 hours away and I forgot to check with her if she could come that weekend. She couldn’t leave her responsibilities–she was trying to be noble about it!!! But I could tell she was upset. So even though the first set of shower announcements were out, DD1, the bride and I decided to change the date of the shower to three days before the wedding. I was so glad that we did that, I would have hated to be the one responsible for keeping my sis from missing her only daughter’s bridal shower. We had a great time, but most importantly my sister and her daughter were so happy to be together they were crying tears of joy. Or it could be that they were laughing so hard they started to cry–either way those are tears of joy in the corners of their eyes. Happy day, happy memories.
