But as I was going for a wedding, I didn’t get to choose the time. Everyplace we visited was interesting and fun because it is so different from the northwest. I had heard that San Antonio was wonderful, and indeed it was! It was actually magical, the River Walk, the Alamo, the beautiful cathedrals were incredible; my only regret is that we didn’t have a longer visit.
My niece Krissi lives in Lubbock Texas, she chose San Antonio so that if people were coming all the way to Texas for the wedding she wanted them to have lots to do and see during their stay. The mansion that the wedding was held in is situated near Trinity University. Typically I forgot to get a picture of the outside, maybe I was in too big of a hurry to get into the building for the air conditioning! The first 7 floors were for tenants, the 8th floor was the ballroom,
The only hiccup we experienced was the small daisies were totally the wrong color! She ordered bright pink not light pink or peach!!
We’d only met the groom once, last summer when he came to Oregon for the 4th of July. We liked him fine, but seriously would anyone be good enough?? After spending a few days with Daniel, under the most stressful of times, I’m here to say, yes indeed, what a perfect match. He is a wonderful compliment to our most precious baby. Krissi is a young woman who has experienced more than her share of life’s hard times and deserves someone as special as she, in my opinion she found him.
One of the other highlights of my trip was seeing our nephew Tim, he is Lilli’s dad. I have known him and adored him for many years and the fact that he is no longer married to Krissi doesn’t remove him from my list of loved ones. I am very proud of him and of Krissi and Daniel for the amazing way they have been able to overcome all the obstacles and remain best of and totally focused on what is best for their daughter. I have ached for them, and worried about their transitions, but I am relieved to have been able to see for myself that they are happy and comfortable with their lives.
The only thing that could have made it more perfect would have been if my middle 2 big boys had been able to get time off work to come. What could be better that?
