Happy birthday to....

This girl.... this past year has been a big year for her.  A new job and of course... her wedding in August.

A beautiful day it was full of family, friends and laughter.

Quiet moments...

between the bride and groom.

Picture worthy moments...

and silly moments too.

It was a day of whimsy...

a day of dreams come true,

a little bit of fairy tale...

and family too.

The ceremony was perfect... even the weather brightened a bit, right on time, on a cool and grey August day.

We worked hard on the details and I think it showed to the guests for the day...

and in fact the wedding was featured on the wedding blog, Every Last Detail, back in December!  After so many hours of planning and hard work this little bit of recognition was extra special.

But really what I'd like to share today is my birthday message to my daughter, Krysta...

Where did that little baby girl go...

It's hard to believe you are all "grown up" and married "lady" now.

And on your 25th birthday I wish for you....

2012 will be a hard year to top!
Love Mom
