Lemon trees and magical moments

When my daughter Sarah was a little girl, she loved the song Lemon Tree.

Last weekend we went to Tower Hill Botanical Garden to photograph some flowers for her guest book. Sarah is getting married in September.

I have created guest books for all kinds of subjects and this one will be created especially  for Sarah and Mike for their wedding day.

Leaves always remind me of nature's heart shaped bunting.
And garden gates always make me think of The Secret Garden.

Memorizing things that make me smile...like Daffodils and spending time with Sarah.


The best part about a wedding is the joy of dreaming and planning.  The joy is always found in the details.  Each detail helps create a window into the bride and groom's personality together.



Well, I hope that you have a magical day, and take some time to stand still and memorize the moment.

Here are two more memorized moments...

Here Comes the Bride

I think that I have mentioned that my daughter, Sarah is getting married this September.  Mike and Sarah got engaged in Disney World last year.


I love the Wedding Song, and it's especially lovely when played by a piano.

Sarah and I went to find her dress several months ago, and the dress arrived.

So, yesterday Sarah invited me, Mike's mom, the bridesmaids and maids-of-honor to see her in THE DRESS.  When Sarah stepped out of the dressing room, she looked radiant in her beautiful dress.  I will share the big reveal on the wedding post.



The girls were also there to try on dresses for the big day.  They were trying on dresses for the bridesmaid and maid-of-honor dresses.  Sarah has chosen her best friend. Amanda and her sister, Ashley to be her maids-of-honor.








It was the second dress that they tried on that looked absolutely lovely on all the the girls.  I'll share them too when I post about the wedding.

Did I tell you that Brayden came along too?



Here are Ashley, Brayden, Sam, Sarah, Amanda, Stephanie and Raelyn.  We finished off the afternoon going out for lunch.



I am linking to Mary's Mosaic Monday today.  Weddings and new babies all in the same year.  What a lovely chapter...
