My Julie


I lost this picture 4 years ago. Today doing a big job of redoing my living room I found it in a book under my couch. Now I have cleaned under that couch and it is a new couch bought in the last 4 years, but I never opened that book until today. Julie did that post on her anniversary and she should of had this picture to show you all. So I am doing this post to show you just how beautiful Julie looked on her wedding day. I love this picture.

When Julie gets up in the morning and goes to do her daily post I don't know what she is going to do or say about it, but I really don't care. I am the Mother. Right? I hope you all like it.

Julie this is for you SURPRISE!!
Love, Margie


Edited to add comment: What a surprise this morning! I turned on the computer at 5 am like it was a typical day. Of course the first thing I noticed was the title: My Julie. I was completely confused. And being only 5 in the morning, it took me a while to understand what was going on. Then I cried. Yesterday I joked with my dad that Mommy must not love me, because there wasn't a picture of me on my wedding day downstairs like there was of my sister and brother on their day(s). Of course I was joking and figured that she must not know where the picture was. When I was ironing her new curtains, she came running in with that picture in her hand telling me she found it!! Thank you Mommy for posting it last night! Although you made me cry in the wee hours of the morning. Kenny came downstairs, looked at me crying and shook his head. Never asked why I was crying. Typical scene in this house, I guess.

And look at the weight I've lost!!!!!!!!

LOVE YOU!!

What a sweet idea your mother had to post that picture. And I totally understand losing a photo in a book under the couch! The amazing detail on your dress really shows up well and may I say it was gorgeous.
