Here comes the Bride!

Ashley and Darrin are engaged! 

I should have posted this sooner (like 2 or 3 weeks ago) but there's been a flurry of visiting, looking at dresses, then at patterns and fabric, and calling back and forth. A few tears. Lots of thanks for many blessings.

My heart is full. I am so very happy for these two wonderful people who enhance my life and love one another so well.

Ashley and Darrin met 3 1/2 years ago, and the sun seemed to shine on them from the beginning...

First Date

Believe me, I was thrilled. Ashley is such a warm and outgoing person, friends everywhere, but that special one seemed just over the horizon...

Darrin is special. Fun, serious, loving, quiet, responsible, dependable, loyal, and very caring. 

He puts a smile on my girl's face every day. And she puts one on his as well. 

Wedding day is January 31, and yes, Ashley and I are making her dress together! More on that later...

Bye for now, Coco
