What do ...

60 flannel sanitary napkins (see post below, 8/27) ...



A finished quilt ...


homemade chocolate chip cookies ...


and one happy couple ...


have in common?

Well, you see my daughter and her Sweetie tied the knot yesterday. They were in Seattle. I was in Florida, instead of standing next to her.  I'm not sure, but I think NOT attending your daughter's wedding, even if it's a small private affair at the downtown courthouse, breaks some law of nature. It's just not right. Alas, try as I might, I couldn't make it happen. 
So, I sewed. All day long. I sewed. 
Then about the time Wendy and Kurt were saying "I do" I whipped up a batch of chocolate chip cookies and ate so many that my stomach still hurt when I woke up this morning. 

I have to say with all honesty, seeing that smile on Wendy's face and knowing she's found love again makes me just about as happy as a mother can be. 

Wishing for you the same I wish for my daughter and new son-in-law .... an abundance of happiness, more good things than bad, sunny days and moonlit nights, rainbows after a storm,  blessings around every corner and always a reason to skip.
Merry ME

Those cookies look delicious! You were with us in spirit, Mamacita. We felt the love. Most definitely. And my heavens, that quilt looks stunning -- thrilled to have pulled you out of quilt retirement. Look what you can do!!!! Love you!! ~Mrs. Weneki

Having just read Weneki's note to you I can only say I know you were standing next to her in spirit.

What a lovely bride and groom!!!!

Choco chip cookies eh? Funny!!!
I pulled out the stuff to make them yesterday and at the last minute didn't do it but I'm going to today...yours look so scrumptious as does your quilt!!! I love the colors!!! I'm so enjoying the beautiful pillow you made for me. :)

Here's wishing for you Mary a 'special Weneki + Mom time,' rainbows to bless it, laughter and love, and peace in all things.

Sending you love, hugs and blessings abundant!

You're right: not standing beside a child when they tie the knot is a tragic breach of nature. Having said that, I LOVE how you were there in spirit and how your hands distracted you with creative (and delicious) productivity.
