I had to utmost pleasure to witness a very close friend of mine, a teacher I team-taught with for 4 years, get married to the woman of his dreams yesterday…..it was beautiful……even better was watching a man with emotions (I’m talking, a man who has his guard up 24/7) shed a tear!
none of this “he-man, manly, muscly, butch” stuff….but full-on, raw, exposed, REAL emotion…..it was beautiful.
Set in a gorgeous tropical setting, it was a perfect day for the middle of winter (can you believe it?)
and we even got to share the first meal with them at Watermark on the Strand. With Marty being a HUGE Broncos fan, and Nay not knowing one end of the field from the other before she met Marty, the cake topper was the ideal choice…
We enjoyed an afternoon of love, laughter and reminiscing…..the perfect combination in the most beautiful of settings….
It was an exceptionally beautiful day, all bar one thing…..I didn’t have their present ready….
I had been working on it day in-day out, trying to get it completed for the BIG day, but alas, the quilting beat me! I still have a bit to go, but now it’s going to be their after-honeymoon gift.
They assure me they don’t mind, but I have mixed emotions…wanting to complete it in time but wanting to have it ‘just perfect’ saw me not finishing it in time…….
so it just means another visit real soon to these two wonderful newlyweds for their first very special delivery! I’m sure I’ll be making a baby quilt in the near future *wink* I’ll just have to plan my time better for that one! May they be forever blessed.
