~I WANTED TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU...~




~This photo made me cry when I saw it...one of those moments in life you want to remember forever.

My daughter, Mary, never looked more beautiful! This photo was taken as she watched her first born son get married in her living room on January 2, 2010.





A brand new Mr. and Mrs..


It's a joy just being in the same room with these two. You can feel the love...and I could not be happier. This is another of my favorite pictures of Alex and Natalia after the ceremony..


I know wedding pictures in someone else's family are not always what you want to see...but I wanted to share them anyway. I hope you like them. I thought these were special.

Smiles and love,
Mona

I love that photo of Mary too because she looks exactly like you and is probably exactly how you looked when each of your children were married.

She's glowing more brightly than the bride I think! LOL Just a lovely, sweet photo. I hope you frame it and keep it forever.

Hugs!!

Look at the love just shining in her eyes, mixed with pride, remembrance andmaybe a touch of sadness, too. I remember the feelings well. Thanks for sharing this intimate moment with us.

What a lovely, lovely, lovely post, to be the first one I have read, on your blog.

Because I just found your blog and you. Because [Mmmmm, I'm in a rut here, aren't I? Because, because, because...]... Anyway, because you just found my new blog, called Gals With Grandmother Faces.

And you left the sweetest of Comments there! No my Dear, you are not alone! You made my day, and I am so happy that I began that new blog.

Gentle hugs...

Mona your daughters face captures the feelings entirely. Thankyou for sharing it. As to your Grandson and his wife their photos ooze love, fun and happiness. The black and white one is quite fun yet stunningly captured.

Wedding photos or photos of people in love are special.
