Western Canada: Trains, Planes, Ferries and Float Trips

By Marilyn Baron On my trip last month through the Grand Canadian Rockies, my husband and I traveled on all modes of transportation. First, we took a classic overnight rail journey (the VIA Rail train, “the Canadian”) from Vancouver, British Columbia, into the Canadian Rockies. When converted to sleeping quarters at night, we slept in […]

Marilyn, I want to go! Your trip sounds fabulous, and the pictures are amazing. I’ll have a front-row seat every Friday!

Marilyn Baron - July 11, 2014 - 9:21 am

Thanks Maxine. There are more great pictures in store.

Piper - July 11, 2014 - 9:22 am

Ahh. Canada!

So beautiful! And I love their national anthem. I am looking forward to these Fridays Marilyn. What great pictures!

Marilyn Baron - July 11, 2014 - 9:27 am

Piper,

Thanks. I thought the scenery in Canada was amazing and it was hard to decide between all of the pictures.

Walt Mussell - July 11, 2014 - 12:36 pm

I have been to a few of those places. I’ve been to Banff and the Athabasca Glacier. I’ve taken the ferry to Victoria. Also, when we lived in Portland, we drove to Vancouver to visit friends (and for the Chinese food).

I could do it all again. It is a beautiful area.

Sandy Elzie - July 11, 2014 - 12:48 pm

Canada is one country that we want to travel to and spend more time. We’ve been there, but not for long enough. Your pictures make me want to leave tomorrow.

Marilyn Baron - July 11, 2014 - 2:23 pm

Walt,
You are lucky to have seen those places. It took me a while to get there but I loved it. Vancouver would be a great place to live.

Marilyn Baron - July 11, 2014 - 2:25 pm

Sandy,
I would go back tomorrow, it’s so beautiful. I’m glad you like the pictures.

Pam Asberry - July 11, 2014 - 3:40 pm

The pictures are breathtaking! I have only been to Canada once and that was just over the border from Niagara Falls. Clearly I need to get back up that way soon!

Marilyn Baron - July 11, 2014 - 5:37 pm

Pam,
I was in Toronto which I loved, but this is something completely different. Western Canada and the Canadian Rockies is spectacular.

Debbie Kaufman - July 15, 2014 - 12:10 pm

Wow, sounds like a lot of fun!

Learning how to sprint–writing a novella

  By Piper Huguley When I started writing at the age of 12, I was always in the writing game for the long haul.  I loved writing the novel. Back in those days, I wrote them in longhand. Friends of mine would read my awful handwriting in stapled-together notebooks that would be numbered one after the […]

Amy Patrick/Amy DeLuca - July 10, 2014 - 9:29 am

Hi Piper! Boy was this great post right on time. I want to write a novella as part of my 20 SOMETHING series, and the idea is daunting because I’ve only written novels. Thank you for getting me started. I’m so thrilled for you about YOUR series, and I’m anticipating very good things for you. :)

Susan Carlisle - July 10, 2014 - 9:45 am

Piper,
I love the cover. I would pick up your book for no reason but that. I’m impressed you can write short. That is so hard for me to do. Short stories scare me to death.

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 10:47 am

Thanks for coming by Amy! I think in these changing times, writing shorter is a skill we have to pick up…I know you can do it if I can! :)

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 10:48 am

Thank you for your kind words Susan! (Please notice I said nothing in the post about short stories–lol!) Thank you for stopping by!

Jacqui Nelson - July 10, 2014 - 11:39 am

Great blog post, Piper! Loved hearing how you came to write THE LAWYER’S LUCK. Looking forward to seeing what comes next in your wonderful series. I’m hooked :)

Connie Gillam - July 10, 2014 - 12:27 pm

Thanks for the idea, Piper. One of my reviewers said my current book should have a prequel. Now with this post, I’m going to try my hand at a novella. Thanks for the inspiration.

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 12:34 pm

Connie,

With John in it?? Oh yes…let’s have more of him!!! Glad to help and thank you for stopping by! :)

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 12:35 pm

Thank you so much for your kind words, Jacqui! I so appreciate that you stopped by!

Debbie Kaufman - July 10, 2014 - 1:17 pm

Go, Piper! Good idea to learn by reading. It usually answers most of your questions. :) Just grabbed a copy for my NOOK!

Sandy Elzie - July 10, 2014 - 2:18 pm

Hi Piper,
Love the cover…can’t wait to read it. I’ve never tried to write a novella…guess it’s an area I should try. thanks for the inspiration and congrats on succeeding.

Marilyn Baron - July 10, 2014 - 2:19 pm

Piper,

I’m so glad you brought up the subject of writing short. Before I got published in novel length, I published four short stories with a small press and I loved writing them. They were humorous supernatural stories. My books range in length from 65,000 to 90,000+. I also wrote a prequel to one of my books, which my publisher picked up. Although the readers loved the prequel and cried, they wished there could have been more and since it came out after the actual book a lot of people didn’t know about the original book when they read the prequel. It used to be that all I could write was long novels, but lately, I find that I prefer writing short. In fact I have another book coming out at the end of the year that’s 45,000 words. I always like to point out that the great writers of the past used to write short stories. And now novelists are picking up that trend and writing prequels or short stories. I’m glad that genre is back in vogue because truly, I prefer that length. Good luck with your current book.

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 3:13 pm

Thank you Debbie! And that’s a different kind of reading, but there are many more novellas out there, so it’s not hard to get something in the genre that you like too! Thank you for buying it in Nook!

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 3:16 pm

Thank you Sandy. I love my cover artist too. And give it a try…you never know. That talk really lit a fire under me, you know? Thank you so much for your kind words.

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 3:17 pm

Marilyn,

I’m so glad that you found a length that you are comfortable with. More publishers are publishing at 45k as well, so it’s a good time for all! Thank you for stopping by!

Mary Curry - July 10, 2014 - 7:22 pm

Hi Piper,

My did you bring back some memories. When I was in 5th grade, we had a talent show in summer camp. I wrote a skit for my sister and her friends to perform. I’m thinking those must have been my Little House on the Prairie days because it was a family saga – emphasis on SAGA. They didn’t use a cane to drag us off, but they did lower the curtain and tell us we were done. OUCH.

Needless to say, trying my hand at a novella would be a rather scary proposition. ;)

Congrats to you on doing it so well!

Piper - July 10, 2014 - 8:07 pm

Lol!!! What a cute story Mary! I’m saving my juvenalia to share for some other column and it was great stuff–believe me!! :)

And if you told me a year ago I would be doing this now–I would have thought you were crazy. So never say never…:) Thanks for stopping by Mary!

Walt Mussell - July 10, 2014 - 10:34 pm

Piper,

Congrats on your novella. I remember that lecture and it made me wonder who I would need to do a novella of. So far, I only have one option in my Japan series manuscripts. However, I’ve yet to jot the idea down.

Tanya A. - July 10, 2014 - 10:55 pm

Piper, I always learn so much from you. Congratulations on finishing your novella and on your upcoming release. It’s always fun to read about what characters other writers choose to spin off a novel and why. So far I’ve only read the first few pages of The Preacher’s Promise, but both your novella and novel I feel are must reads for sometime in the near future.

Sandra Owens - July 10, 2014 - 11:13 pm

Love the cover, Piper. The Lawyer’s Luck is on my Kindle and I look forward to reading it.

Carol Burnside - July 11, 2014 - 12:15 am

Piper, I applaud you for writing a novella. They’re not easy, but I enjoy the challenge of them. I actually prefer writing shorter works. Short stories, novellas and 45-65K novels. Best of luck with your series!

Maxine Davis - July 11, 2014 - 8:30 am

Piperk, Please forgive a day late. Ienjoyed your post. Congratulations on your novella. I’m off to get it after this. Can’t wait to read it. I tried writing a novella and enjoyed it. I need to revisit and get it out there. You are an inspiration. Best of luck.

Piper - July 11, 2014 - 9:04 am

Thanks Walt for your kind words. It’s great to hear that you have an option! Write it down! I’m always afraid these things will get away from me! Thank you for stopping by!

Piper - July 11, 2014 - 9:14 am

Thanks Tanya! You are right, it is interesting to see what people think of as potential for other stories. My editor brought up a different character I hadn’t even thought of giving a story in The Lawyer’s Luck and so, as I went over The Preacher’s Promise, I gave her a little more prominence with that in mind–in case I give her a story. Thanks for stopping by!

Piper - July 11, 2014 - 9:14 am

Thanks for the buy Sandra and for commenting! I appreciate your support!

Piper - July 11, 2014 - 9:19 am

Carol,

So glad you found a length you like. And they do require a bit more, don’t they? I’m just glad I tried it! Thank you for commenting!

Piper - July 11, 2014 - 9:21 am

No worries Maxine! Thank you for your kind words. I do my best! Thank you in advance for the potential buy of The Lawyer’s Luck!

New Releases !! AMANDA and DAD NEXT DOOR

By Sandra McGregor   I was raised for the first dozen years in a small town in North Carolina…a town where everyone knew everyone else…and everyone knew as much about their neighbor’s personal business as they did about their own.But all-in-all, that wasn’t such a bad thing. Folks knew when you needed help…and they were […]

Marilyn Baron - July 9, 2014 - 7:22 am

Sandy,
Congratulations on the new releases and all your exciting future plans. And I LOVE the amulet. What a great promotion. Best of luck with your new series.

Pam Asberry - July 9, 2014 - 8:58 am

Sandy, congratulations on your latest venture and continued success. You inspire me! I can’t wait to get started on “Dad Next Door.” :-)

Piper - July 9, 2014 - 9:00 am

Theses stories look wonderful Sandy! I love family stories (not to mention the name of Amanda, the name of heroine in one of my stories). Congratulations on the double release! And the contest is a very good idea as well. Keep up the great work!

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 10:02 am

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks so much and the amulet is very pretty in person. I plan to have a give-away for the next two books in the series…Book 2, Jessie is a writer, so her promotional item is a beautiful studded memory stick and Book 3, Katie drinks hot tea, so hers will be a beautiful rose teapot/cup/lid combo with a dessert plate. It’s so pretty that I actually thought about keeping it for myself, but……….

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 10:03 am

Pam,
I hope you enjoy the story and come on girl…I know you can do it and I can’t wait to read your first story. If you ever want a beta reader, I’m your gal.

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 10:04 am

Piper,
Thanks much. Yes, Amanda was a good friend of mine in school, so I used her name. (And I also knew a Jessie and a Katie, so now you know where I get names for my heroines…lol )

Maxine Davis - July 9, 2014 - 10:52 am

Hi Sandy, Can’t wait to read Dad Next Door and Amanda. I do enjoy your writing! I wish you much continued success!

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 11:02 am

Hi Maxine,
Hey girl…hope you’re feeling better. Thanks for the kind words and I hope you enjoy the stories.

Dianna Love - July 9, 2014 - 1:41 pm

Hi Sandy-

Woohoo on your latest releases! Love the sound of both of these stories. Congratulations on getting two books out in one month!

Carol Burnside - July 9, 2014 - 3:25 pm

Sandy, congrats on your new releases. The books sound great. I peeked at your website and noticed you’ve got a busy publishing schedule for the rest of the year. Go, you!

Sia Huff - July 9, 2014 - 4:43 pm

Both books sound wonderful, Sandy. You know how to tug at the heartstrings. Good luck with your new releases and the rest of your Georgia Heart series. wishing you many sales.

Trudy - July 9, 2014 - 4:50 pm

Congratulations on your new releases – they sound great! Just wondering, is it true that the hardest part of writing is the opening sentence of the story? Keep up the good work.

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 7:46 pm

Hi Diana,
Thanks so much! We all sure miss you. Hope all is well for you and we get to see you soon. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment.

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 7:48 pm

Yes, Carol, I bit off a huge bite of publishing cookie…and with a bit of luck, I’ll be able to swallow it. :) Along with everything else, I’m already writing for next year’s release(s).

It’s not a job…it’s not a job…it’s not a job. (sigh)

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 7:50 pm

Hi Sia,
Thanks for the positive carma words about good sales. But, of course, working at the lake cabin helps keeps the writing juices flowing.

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 7:51 pm

Hi Trudy,
Some say the first line is the hardest, some say the first chapter. I think, at least for me, the hardest parts are finding the right place to start the story and having to delete things that I decide later don’t fit. (Those words are like my babies and I’m tossing them out!!!!!)

Thanks for dropping by.

Connie Gillam - July 9, 2014 - 8:47 pm

You’ve been busy! Congratulations on the two new releases.

Sandy Elzie - July 9, 2014 - 10:17 pm

Thanks, Connie. My grandmother used to say that idle hands were the devil’s workshop. Can’t have that, so guess it’s a good thing that I keep busy writing. :)

Debbie Kaufman - July 10, 2014 - 9:34 am

Sorry I missed this yesterday! My eyeballs were under the control of the retina doc for most of the day. So proud of you girl. Way to go!

Sandy Elzie - July 10, 2014 - 2:12 pm

Thanks Deb. Glad your eyes are doing okay.

Sandy Elzie - July 13, 2014 - 5:23 am

Good Morning,
The two winners of downloads are Trudy and Piper. Ladies, just let me know which book you’d like a copy of !!!

Saying Goodbye by Sia Huff

Sorry I’m running late today. Actually, I thought I was supposed to post next week. That’s been my life of late. This whole spring seems like one piece of bad news after another, and I’m having difficulty wrapping my head around it. Today…this morning was the worst. I had to say good-bye to someone I […]

Marilyn Baron - July 8, 2014 - 12:35 pm

Sia,
My heart breaks for you. When I saw that picture of Honey swimming I thought how wonderful that she was able to enjoy her last day with you. We had to say goodbye to our dog who lived about 17 years and it was so hard so I know what you’re going through. I don’t think there could be a better dog in the world and I loved what the 6-year-old had to say.

I put my dog, a Bichon Frise, as a character in many of my books as a tribute.

Sia Huff - July 8, 2014 - 1:33 pm

Thank you, Marilyn. Honey did enjoy her swimming time. She was a great joy. I agree, about the six year old. It’s funny how sometimes children can be the wisest.
I love how you pay tribute to your Bichon Frise. Maybe I’ll start a journal about Honey’s quirks and habits.

Maxine Davis - July 8, 2014 - 7:00 pm

Sia, My heart broke as I read your post and I cried for you. Honey was so lucky that she had the absolute love of her family. There is no doubt her family had her absolute love. The 6-year-old was wise beyond his years–and right. Sia, I am thinking of you and your family. You all are in my prayers. I do hope things “look up” for you soon.

Piper - July 8, 2014 - 8:16 pm

Sia,

Please know I am praying for you and your family. Thank you for sharing the pure wisdom of a child as well. What a way to put it. I’m so glad you had that comfort at that moment.

Sandy Elzie - July 8, 2014 - 9:08 pm

Sia,
So sorry to hear about the four-legged member of your family. She was a beautiful dog…and you gave her just as many happy years as she gave you.

Sia Huff - July 8, 2014 - 9:47 pm

Dear Maxine, Thank you for your kind words of comfort and your tears. I don’t think I’ve cried so much since I lost my father. I knew my love for her was deep – right now, the well seems endless. Your right, our love for each other was absolute and all encompassing. She blessed me in so many ways. {{Hugs}}

Sia Huff - July 8, 2014 - 9:50 pm

Piper, Thank you so much for your prayers. They mean everything! Yes, a six-year old shouldn’t be so wise. Maybe that’s why he was heard.

Sia Huff - July 8, 2014 - 9:54 pm

Thank you, Sandy. She was beautiful – inside and out. I prayed for a good dog for the family. She stole our hearts and became a part of us – family.

Carol Burnside - July 9, 2014 - 4:06 am

Oh, Sia, I’m so sorry you’ve lost your long-time companion and friend. They leave paw prints on our hearts that time can’t erase. Hold the good memories close. (((Hugs)))

Pam Asberry - July 9, 2014 - 8:55 am

Your post made me cry. I am so sorry for your loss. I don’t know what I’ll do without my Karma. I try not to think about it. Love and hugs to all of you.

Sia Huff - July 9, 2014 - 4:56 pm

Thank you, Carol. I know you lost your Beau fairly recently. And your right, they do leave paw prints on your heart. I lay by her side the other night talking to her and her paw went right over my heart. That’s where she’ll always remain. {{{Hugs back}}} Thanks, I need them right now.

Sia Huff - July 9, 2014 - 5:01 pm

Thank you, Pam. Sorry to make you cry. I’m right there with you. I feel dehydrated from all the tears I’ve shed. But, Honey girl was sooo worth it.
I hope Karma has many more years with you. Enjoy your time with Karma. {{{Hugs back}}} And hugs to your dog.

Connie Gillam - July 9, 2014 - 8:44 pm

The grief is the same as losing a child, because they are one of your children.

Praying for you and your family.

Debbie Kaufman - July 10, 2014 - 1:14 pm

So sorry, Sia. I know how hard this was, but I am so glad she won’t suffer and that you had her company as long as you did!

Lynda Cox - July 11, 2014 - 12:00 am

Sia, my heart aches for you. Every time I’ve had to say good-bye I promise myself I won’t let myself love those four legged “kids” so much. And, immediately that promise is broken. Their only true fault is that they don’t live long enough. Hugs…

All About Marathons

by Sandra Elzie       Last weekend our kids came to visit and our son had the bright idea to have a movie marathon. We have all the Bourne Identity movies, all the Star Wars, Rockys, Star Treks, and the list goes on. He chose all the Die Hard movies.   We spent hours […]

View full post »

Pam Asberry - July 7, 2014 - 8:41 am

We have never done a movie marathon, but I think we should! I am thinking ladies’ sleepover with a Jane Austen marathon…

Maxine Davis - July 7, 2014 - 9:14 am

Sandy, Sounds great, especially having your kids there. I’ve come close, I guess. You’ve heard some TV stations talk about a Harry Potter marathon or NCIS. Well, I’ve watched plenty of those two – and thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed your post.

Sandy Elzie - July 7, 2014 - 9:28 am

Pam,
Yeah!!!! I’m your gal! The last movie marathon hubs & I did was The Godfather. (can anyone say…not a romance series?????)

Sandy Elzie - July 7, 2014 - 9:29 am

Oh, Maxine…NCIS….marathon Mark Harmon. (sigh) I can vote a big yes for that. (Sure miss Ziva, though)

Marilyn Baron - July 7, 2014 - 9:55 am

I don’t remember doing a movie marathon but we have done it with TV shows. It sounds line fun.

Sandy Elzie - July 7, 2014 - 10:40 am

Hi Marilyn,
We enjoy it…once in a while. We used to go to the home of a friend in CA and do this all day Sat & through the night until everyone fell asleep or went home. First person to arrive picked the first movie, second person to arrive picked the next movie, and on and on. Oh, and we all brought food and grazed our way through 8-10 movies.

Walt Mussell - July 7, 2014 - 11:24 am

We don’t do marathons like that. We’ve yet to have the time to veg for several movies. However,we have movie nights all the time. Got my wife and kids to watch “Throw Momma from the Train” (Billy Crystal and Danny Devito) last weekend. My 12-y.o. had to watch it again.

Favorite movie night of all time is still “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Wish I had a video recording of my 12-y.o. when the car went out the window.

Connie Gillam - July 7, 2014 - 12:43 pm

I’ve never done a movie marathon, but I did catch up on several episodes of The Blacklist last Christmas as I wrapped presents. A movie marathon sounds like fun, if everyone in the family could agree (and were interested) in the same series.

Piper - July 7, 2014 - 2:41 pm

We don’t do movie marathons. I’m not sure why. When my mother was alive, we used to do Pride and Prejudice marathons and drive my father crazy. Now, since there are more versions of P&P, we would need two days to do such a marathon.

Once, I did a Veronica Mars marathon. Oh, I was so grateful that I didn’t watch that show week to week. It would have been intolerable. A marathon was a much better way to deal with the mystery!

Sandy Elzie - July 7, 2014 - 3:25 pm

Hi Walt,
I enjoyed Throw Momma from the Train. I think my favorite marathon…although we usually watch them over the course of a week is the Bourne movies. Each one is just as good as the first one…imho.

Sandy Elzie - July 7, 2014 - 3:29 pm

Hi Piper, Sorry, never got into P&P like some folks, but I love the driving your father crazy part. When our girls were young (about 10 & 13) they’d watch Grease over and over and over. Enough to drive anyone crazy.

Sandy Elzie - July 7, 2014 - 3:31 pm

Connie, I know what you mean about catching up on several edisodes at once. When we first started watching NCIS it was in the 56h or 6th season. We ordered the first ones from Netflicks, along with the early episodes of Burn Notice, Psych & White Collar. I love missing out on all the repeated commercials. :)

Tanya A. - July 7, 2014 - 10:53 pm

My husband watches more television than I do, but when we get a chance (and our four kids let us), we like to watch a marathon of whatever shows we are watching for the first time either on Netflix or DVD. We are on season 2 of Castle and are watching it for the first time.

The reason I enjoyed this post was my son is 11 and is too young for Die Hard yet, but I showed him the YouTube video of Screen Junkies debating how many John McClanes would be needed for Die Hard 2-5. My son loves that montage and watched the montage again today, showing the clip to my older daughter. He’d love a YouTube marathon of that clip alone.
Thanks for an enjoyable blog.

Carol Burnside - July 8, 2014 - 2:42 am

Sandy, rather than movie marathons, we’ve done series marathons. First one was the series 24. Since it was several seasons in when we began, it took us many nights of 3-6 episodes to complete, but it was a lot of fun to share our reactions to the latest installments.

Sandy Elzie - July 8, 2014 - 5:40 am

Hi Carol,
I’m getting ready to do that with the series Suits. I didn’t get in on the first season, so I have some catching up to do.

Susan Carlisle - July 8, 2014 - 9:11 am

My kids and I watch all of Lonesome Dove one rainy Saturday. It took all day. We still talk about doing that. We have also made a full day of watching WWII movies. It is fun.

Sia Huff - July 8, 2014 - 5:07 pm

Great question, Sandy. I’ve done MM with my boys – Star Wars and Harry Potter. And I’m with Piper on P&P. I received the BBC mini-series version for Christmas awhile ago. You can’t stop with just one.

Where are we traveling to this month?

Hi Marilyn,
I have no clue where this was taken….maybe Canada? or in our Rockies…say Colorado????? but it is absolutely beautiful.

Can’t wait to read your posts this month.

Kathryn Jane - July 4, 2014 - 8:36 am

Looks like Canada’s Rockies :) …Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise area

Have to admit I haven’t been there for years, even though I live in BC. I must make a road trip soon!

Marilyn Baron - July 4, 2014 - 9:40 am

Sandra,
I will announce where it is Monday morning. The posts about the location will be fun. So drop back by next Friday and every Friday in July.

Maxine Davis - July 4, 2014 - 10:14 am

It’s a beautiul picture, Marilyn. I guess I’ll say Colorado.

Piper - July 4, 2014 - 10:14 am

So lovely! It almost has be forgetting about the bugs that probably live down by that water….

Aspen?

Marilyn Baron - July 4, 2014 - 10:45 am

I’ll announce it Monday but one of you is so close it’s frightening. Piper, there are no bugs. Too cold for them I guess. Maxine, the scenery on this place was so magnificent it was hard to choose which picture to post. Kathryn, thanks for commenting. You are so lucky to live there.

Marilyn Baron - July 6, 2014 - 3:19 pm

Congratulations. The winner is Kathryn Jane. Although Sandy guessed Canada, Kathryn was more specific. The photo was taken in the Canadian Rockies at a place called Emerald Lake. Actually on our trip to Western Canada, we stopped at three places called Emerald Lake. All were in the area around Lake Louise or between Lake Louise and Banff, so Kathryn was really right on the money. Kathryn, go to the top navigation bar and click on Contests, and then Winner, Blog Drawing to find out how to get your prize. Or click on Contact us and send an email. And put July contest winner in the email subject line. Thanks for your comment. Tune in this Friday and every Friday in July to find out more about our trip to the Canadian Rockies.

Sia Huff - July 9, 2014 - 4:46 pm

Gorgeous, Marilyn. I look forward to reading about Canada.

Wedding Pictures

Last month I promised pictures of my son’s wedding. Out of the 940 these are just a few. My husband and I had not just gotten out of the mental ward for the day. We are singing.

Susan,
Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures. I love your outfit and hat. My daughter is getting married next May so I have a lot to look forward to. Marilyn

Pam Asberry - July 3, 2014 - 9:30 am

Great pictures, Susan. Everyone looks fabulous. Congratulations!

Walt Mussell - July 3, 2014 - 11:51 am

Susan, congrats again on your son’s wedding. His special day looks like it went great!

Susan, you look beautiful and your son looks so handsome. Congratulations to all and thanks for sharing pictures.

Carol Burnside - July 3, 2014 - 2:40 pm

The wedding looks fun and fabulous. You and Andy look relieved and happy. Congrats to everyone!
