okay, okay

I have not fallen off the face of the earth. ( that happens later this week)
As to wedding photos....gonna have to wait on others to share with me because I was having too much fun to snap up memories of my own. 
Many of you have suggested I take a nap. 
what a lovely thought. 
Funny thing about weddings... all that stuff you had to do before...well now it has to be un-done! 
My dining room table is still loaded with... 
wedding cake, 
yucca blossoms, 
wilting brides bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets, 
water bottles, 
a basket of eco-fetti, boxes of assorted wedding stuff. 
The living room is blessed with wedding gifts, 
the garage is blessed with tubs and boxes of decor stuff to sort and return to rightful owners, 
fridge is STUFFED with left overs from feeding 20 some people for 3 days.

We had 2 amazing crews of friends help take down and put away the chairs. Others were finishing the reception take down, and then woo hoo....these hungry helpers stopped in to snack, lunch and hope to see Bride and RMG. 

There were a few lucky lingerers who got to see the wedding gift opening. 
Bride and I went to both venues to do final check making sure we had gotten everything....while guess what others did?

This is the job, blessing, curse, reality of mom of bride and bride. NO one works on this event as much as you. True story, reality, accept it.
And it's okay. 
all a matter of how you choose to see things
Get upset and frustrated or just do it and be greatful.

We've had tons of help and all was needed.

Nap, well not yet. But it's still on the list.
