Hello. As we invite you all into our ever changing world to witness our journeys and to join us on the rollercoaster ride that seems to get more hazardous each week, this episode was a welcome reprieve . . .
First, I indulged myself in a rare morning off to spend some time with Pandora choosing dresses. I had heard of a designer, Ian Stuart, who ironically came from the same village in London as I did. Pandora had fallen in love with one of his dresses on his website, so off we trotted to see his creations in person. I had been feeling a little guilty about not giving my daughter as much attention as she deserved at this very special moment in her life, a moment that is reserved for mother and daughter and is the segue for her leaving to start her own life with the man she loves. Time was running out as the wedding was rapidly approaching. I needed to set aside my other demands. When I view moments like this, when my daughter asks me if I am going to cry and reveals herself for the first time in a gown, and to have documented amongst all the craziness these incredible vignettes of irreplaceable experiences, locked, not only in my heart, but on film for all the world to see, I couldn't be happier.
