a date with our daughter

Last night we had a special date with a bride... our lovely daughter Miranda. 

 We went to dinner at Windsor and then we came back to the house and watched Father of the Bride. On VHS no less. Hey, it's tradition. When you've watched it a million times on VHS, why not again for the very last time, before our daughter becomes a bride herself in 12 days! 

Needless to say, lots of tears. I was a mess the whole night. But a good mess. My heart was bursting with love and pride for this amazing woman sitting across the table from us... that has faithfully waited on God for the right man. 

And all along it was the boy she fell in love with as a young girl... praying often throughout the years that if that man isn't Aaron, then someone just like him. And God's thinking "wait till she finds out it IS Aaron".
Gosh, I love a good story, and theirs is one of the best!

Ok, back to Windsor ~ great food, great ambiance and well, a great bathroom. Seriously, don't you just love fun, quirky, whimsical bathrooms? I do too. And I must say, Windsor is among my favorites. ha!
