Happy First Anniversary Card for Ashley and Tim


One year ago today we stood on the beach and witnessed my daughter become the bride of Tim Fialkowski.  That was one of the happiest days of my life.  When your children are born I think we all have the same wish …that they are happy and healthy.   I have always told my children that family comes first.  I believe that with my whole heart.  So I feel blessed that my daughter found her “prince charming” and had a fairy tale wedding in front of a big pink castle.
As I reflected upon this happy occasion, I looked back on the reason I started this blog.  It was to showcase my creative journey.  This journey has been ongoing, but it was my daughter whom talked me into this blog.  So over the next few weeks I will be having a wedding post once a week where I showcase some of the creative projects we did for her fairy tale wedding.

You also need to understand that this wedding was so unlike my own.  We were married at St Nicholas Church with the reception at the local Knights of Columbus Hall, which is still about the only place to be married in our small town.  I think we only had cake and I am sure a couple of kegs of beer.  No cocktail hour or spa day for us.  No one did my nails and I am sure I even did my own hair. A” Plain Jane” wedding with homemade dotted swiss bride’s maid dresses.  So when I stepped into the lobby of this grand hotel, I felt like I had  stepped  into someone else’s life.  I still can not believe that is me in the picture.  It is remarkable what a day at the spa can do for a person!!
