My truth. My life.

Slipping through my fingers

I can’t believe how quickly this little girl: 403236_3046821775781_1089944472_nTurned into this young woman:217405_10151934674210166_414929344_n

The many faces of a beautiful night…..

IMG_1808 A perfect face of happiness and nervousness.

IMG_1820 Nervous about tonight…..  Love the curls and makeup.

IMG_1826  Ready to show the world….

IMG_1829  It’s 5 minutes before he’s supposed to be here.  Calling to find out where he is…

IMG_1888 a very scared dad….. IMG_1845  because of the way he looks at her….




IMG_1842  A surprise jump on his back leads to the most beautiful laugh…..

IMG_1873          IMG_1887 A very supportive best friend….

IMG_1881  A princess who has stolen everyone’s heart….

For those of you who noticed I wasn’t in any pictures, That’s my only regret……. I was to busy making it a perfect night for her that I forgot about myself.


I wish I could go back to day 1 for just a minute or two.  To hold my angel in my arms again…..


Please take the time to listen to this song….. It’s as if my heart wrote it.

  10. I couldn’t finish listening to the song. Tears were forming and that tightness in my throat when a person is about to bawl. Beautiful photos and I think you are a wonderful mom for helping make her day so special that you forgot about yourself. I know now you wish you were in them but you were there in every way. hugs.

  11. This post made me misty. I don’t have a daughter, but I see my sons growing up (and a little away) all the time. I wish there was some way to pause time, or at least slow it down a bit.

  12. Pretty awesome, proud momma!

    Your daughter is beautiful.

  15. What a beautiful couple. Congratulations, Deana. You have done so well and I sincerely it is a big achievement to have your daughter married. Wishing them all the best 🙂

  16. p.s. I listened to the video ‘after’ I did comment and tears wouldn’t stop…as my ‘little’ girl is now in her 40’s and sometimes I feel like she is ‘falling through my fingers’… I sent the video to her…hoping she understands why….Diane

  17. OMG D… She is so beautiful!! This post brought some little tears… of happiness… and I don’t even have kids… yet… so, see? How you have touched me..? I am so glad I read this!!
