After a year of planning, preparation and worry the day arrived without a hitch,

Presenting Mr and Mrs MacLeod



The wedding took place in the back field overlooking their farm and rolling hills. We all parked along a red clay road and enjoyed a wagon ride to the wedding.  Victoria arrived in this old DeSoto and every window was filled with flower bunches as the brides maids had hidden Victoria with their bouquets.

If you look on the left of this photo you can see a field with trees around it. This is the spot they were married. This is my grand-daughter Ana trying to get Dewar’s attention because she wants on the tractor with him.




So here is the picture I’ve been asked for.  This is me so proud watching Victoria come down the isle.  Yes,  I have to admit being mother of the bride has its moments, like pressed on nails, early breakfasts, pulled through an up-do and face painting the morning of, all that took us racing into the afternoon all of a sudden to be to the wedding on time.  Dewar had mentioned in not so many words that non of us had better be late or he might not be standing up front when we get there.  So Victoria was keeping us on a tight schedule the day of.

A trip out with the girls and I’m feeling like a teenager again.  Victoria our daughter is getting married on Saturday and well she had me come out for nails yesterday.  “Nails” what do I need my nails done for?  And, “If I made it to 51 years old and never had my nails done, do you think I need to start?”  Yes, was her answer.

It was getting close to me sitting in the chair and I chickened out at the last minute.  Vic turns to me and says, “get in the chair, you are getting your nails done!”  Wow, I think she is getting a little cocky, but never has she spoken to me like that before so I move fast and get into the chair, while I’m thinking $%^&*( little brat ).  We keep looking across at each other and with wonder I beat she thinks I’ll get up and excuse myself any minute.  I have to say, it was painful having someone hold and touch my hand for that length of time but I did it for Victoria, she wanted me to have my nails done and when the guy said, “ok, go wash your hands in the sink” I ran.  

So here they are



He did an excellent job, they feel great.



I wanted a few sprigs of wheat painted on them,

because the corsages I made are wheat and paper flowers



And the nails match my courage, that match my dress that match my shoes and then Vic took me out and we picked out jewellery to match.  I think she doesn’t want me wearing my seaglass necklace, that is ok after all it is her wedding.  She picked me out some beautiful jewellery.  Next she thinks she is taking me to get make-up done, ah ya… I’d not signed up for this.

 Well If I’m not wearing it for the wedding it will be on Etsy next week.

It was fun but I have to run and get breakfast for our guests, Ill be back with the haircut next, don’t know about the make-up thing, lol.  Oh, and I feel so much like booking my next nail appointment, yes I think I will.
