Happy News!

Happy News!
I don’t usually post on Saturdays but I want to share some happy news with you. Last Wednesday, my mother, Betty, married her long-time beau, Don!She called last weekend to tell me that they had decided to tie the knot and that the ceremony was taking place in a few days. Unfortunately, it was too short notice for me to fly across the country to North Carolina where they live, but I was certainly there in spirit.

Thankfully they had beautiful photos taken by Les Atkins Photography, There will be more forthcoming of the actual ceremony, which was at their local courthouse.

Don’t they look happy?

Such a striking couple they make! And I love my mother’s dress. She looks radiant.

I wish Don and Betty a joyful life together. I am so thankful that my mother found someone so kind and loving in Don. I am very much looking forward to meeting him and his family in the not-too-distant future.

Congratulations to the happy and beautiful couple!
xo, Adrienne

    Love this! The fact that they married in what is considered to be the latter years. We were together 10 years and then married when I was 53 and David was 56. It’s such a great time in life to celebrate being together. Many happy wishes to the bride and groom! xox Gorgeous people they are!

    Adrienne your mother is lovely! I see where you got your gorgeous looks. What a happy couple and they are glowing. Isn’t it fabulous that both of our mother’s have found love later in life? I’m still smiling from my mom’s wedding last month. Who knew love could bloom so beautifully at age 83?
