Happy Wednesday! Just getting myself back into the game (missed my Favorites this week, but rest assured they will be back soon!) after a wonderful vacation. I can’t wait to share! I also have a wonderful upcoming celebration of This Season’s Gold’s 5 month Anniversary with a New York Fashion Week Giveaway! Can you believe it’s almost Fall in just over a month? It’s my favorite season of all. I think thick September fashion magazines, NY Fashion Week, return of great TV series, apple picking, my birthday! (More about that last bit soon! It’s a big one!)
In the meantime, I am happy to share this emerald green dress with gold accents that I wore to a family wedding a few weeks ago and what it meant to attend. Not only was it beautiful and full of surprises (can anyone say bagpipe performance?), it was sweet to watch two people in love for so long finally getting married. Of course, I was thrilled to get all wedding pretty and dress up my son as well!
I was aware that a big event like this meant thinking about my daughter and having that feeling of never being a mother of the bride. It was bittersweet, but watching my son enjoy his first attendance at a wedding immediately brought me joy. It’s a constant feeling of joy and sorrow that I am always balancing. While I absolutely love watching my son grow and learn so much about life at such a great age (having a precocious 5 year old is a life lesson in parenting in itself!), I live with this empty space that no joy can seem to fill. But I strive to make each moment worth it and accept it for what it is.
Having my son experience his first wedding and watching the ceremony to dancing the night away literally (he did not stop dancing from the minute the music started!), makes me look forward to the day I can have my Mother/Son dance at his own wedding. I’m not rushing it though! Hope you enjoy!
