For Dale: Once upon a time

 Once upon a time a girl met a boy and fell in love. It was that young, rash, throw caution to the wind, deeply, madly, wildly in love kind of love. The sort that fairy tales are made of. It was just the beginning, only the beginning, because so much lay ahead for this boy and this girl. They were blessed because behind them, surrounding them, lifting them up was a village of people who loved them. They would be there to guide, to share joys and sorrows, to hold and lift them up when they needed it. And so they were blessed. 21 years later, 5 amazing children, and their village still lifting them and loving them. But blessed most of all because that boy asked, and that girl said yes, yes with all her heart. ❤️

  1. Remembering this day with a smile on my face. It rained a lot the night before, but we woke to sunshine and a beautiful day. I remember asking Sitto Olive, what she thought of how everything looked when they arrived from church to the reception in our back yard, and she said “it was like walking into a magical wonderland…” and the wonder and love continues today……
