Capturing a precious family morning!

Join me on my writing journey each week as I post to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by Stacey and Ruth from 
Two Writing Teachers.  

I've been out of school a little over two weeks. Grades, a wedding, and a purging party have filled my days.  

Today, I'd like to capture a precious family time we enjoyed before the wedding on June 19, 2012.  After a late flight from Portland on Monday night, my daughter, Sara and her husband, Will grabbed a few hours of sleep at Will's folks' house and then rose early to join us at the hotel in Salt Lake City.  Our morning fun began when Sara and Will arrived with Chocolate Roll, a special family recipe.   A few minutes later Blake joined us.  He was astonished to open the door and see the Chocolate Roll on the stand by the TV.   He knew that this was a labor of love by his sister.  It's easy to help a groom get ready, much easier than helping a bride!  Our next few moments together were filled with fun and giggles. Will isn't in the pictures, but he was there contributing to the light and laughter of our morning.  Before we knew it, it was time for the wedding and the joining of two lives and two families.


  1. What a sweet sister ! Your son looks so much like my son...someday, it will be him. Enjoy your time. xo nanc

  2. Waiting before the wedding is not easy, I remember. The chocolate roll must have eased the time. Nice story!

  3. I've never heard of a chocolate roll. Sounds delicious. I would imagine getting the groom ready is a bit more relaxing (and far quicker) than the bride. ;)

  4. It was such a fun morning! I'm glad we thought to snap some pictures!
