Yesterday I had a great day! My step-daughter, Lori, is getting married in October and we went shopping for her gown yesterday at David’s Bridals! I had a blast. Everyone that went along was me, Lori’s mom, her maid of honor, and her future mother-in-law. It was really good for me to get out. I haven’t been feeling well at all this week and I was so afraid that I would not be up to going but everything worked out okay. She found the dress of her dreams and she looked beautiful in it! I am so excited for her!
Lori has been through a lot and she finally found the right guy, who treats her and her two daughters like princesses! Lori decided to go with a tiara instead of a veil and I think it fits perfectly! She is finally being treated like a princess and the tiara fits the part! There is only 9 years age difference between me and Lori, so I know that it has always been a little awkward for her to have me as her step mom. What is funny, though, is I feel as if she were one of my own, even though there is no way I could be old enough to have given birth to her! She is 27 years old, but still looks like a senior in high school. She is a very pretty, smart, funny and a wonderful mother. Her two girls are adorable and they love their soon to be daddy! The sad part of my illness, and my husband’s health, is we are not able to help Lori with the girls and we feel so guilty. We have about all we can handle with Logan, our 4-year-old son. But I hope the girls know that we really love them and we think of them all the time. It is extremely difficult for me just to handle one child because of my health. I have a hard time with more than that. I LOVE weddings and her wedding can’t come fast enough for me! Lori can’t wait for the big day. She feels as though October is never going to get here! I love decorating and she is having me figure out how to decorate her reception tables! YEAH!! I’m ready to get started! I have some ideas up my sleeve, now I just need to go shopping.
