I wasn't aware Grown Up Girl is your niece! Funny how we piece things together after the fact.

Yes, that your dress fits your girl so perfectly is a huge reality check. My mom does the same with old photos of herself: she talks through the fact that she felt so "fat" or overweight back then, when she was 30 pounds lighter than now, etc. We women need to ease up on ourselves.


Love, love, LOVE your dress! The veil is another matter. lol

I am now very curious about the story of you and Grownup Girl.

I've read your blog long enough that I know some of your backstory. I love how GG looks up at you so smart and happy. And now all of you are smart and happy preparing for her wedding! SB is so beautiful. "Somewhere in Time."

I didn't know she was your niece! OH so adorable, all these pics, niiiiiiice :)


Your wedding dress is gorgeous! The photo of you and GUG is so sweet I almost cried! You should recreate it at her wedding.

What a sweet picture of the two of you.

Two sweet pics in one post! ♥
I love how the two of you are looking at one another in the first photo, and SB looks AMAZING in your wedding dress.

I forgot to link back to you in my TWT post, so I'll head back and do that now. :)

What an amazing picture of you two, and what a lucky lucky girl GUG was that you stepped in to her life.


I look at photos of myself in college when I felt so much bigger than everyone else and i look too thin! my head looks too big for my body. But I thought I was fat because I weighed 165 pounds while my friends were in the 130s. I have a large frame, and i didn't account for that. Now, if i could see the 100-anythings I'd be extatic.


what a gorgeous dress! My post is up, better late than never...again LOL!



Love the expressions on your faces as you and GuG connect.

And isn't it amazing to get retroactive perspective on what you *really* looked like as opposed to how you felt? I wish we were all a little kinder to ourselves.

I know the history of GUG *Jumping up raising my hands like a crazy person* :) But I've never seen that photo before of the two of you; you can see the love way back when. And I know for sure, that $45 was quite a bit back in the day.
I adore the photo of SB in your dress! IT is a classic style and she is gorgeous.
Enjoy your girls this week!

The Girl Next Door

Didn't know the GUG story but LOVE the photo of her in your dress!!! Love this post and all the wedding preps!!
