July Hiatus: My Daughter’s Wedding

August 5, 2012

While I have been absent here, I have been a very busy Mother of the Bride this past month in preparation of our daughter Susannah’s wedding last Sunday in our backyard. What a beautiful, memorable day~a living poem!

After all the guests have departed-to Ireland, New York, Texas- I am settling back into a few slow days to reflect and get back up to speed. Enjoy the weekend, the lovely summer days, and we’ll get back down to poetry business before long. Promise.
