#MicroblogMondays: A wedding, & what might have been
As with most of these "milestone" occasions, it was bittersweet for both me & dh. Overall, we had a good time, getting dressed up (something we so seldom do these days...!!), visiting with friends & relatives, enjoying the dinner, bursting with pride over our tall, handsome nephews (both ushers in the bridal party) & their lovely fiancées.
But watching the bride's normally taciturn father deliver an emotional toast, his voice cracking, and then the two of them sharing a father-daughter dance, was tough. Dh & I squeezed hands under the table.
At one point during the dance, I saw one of his cousins looking at us. I wonder if she realized what we were both thinking?
