I got married the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We surprised my mom with the wedding on Friday night before the big day. It was a super small and simple wedding with family only...around 20 people. We got married at my aunt's ranch down in Harlingen, Texas and it was beautiful. She had a corner of her front yard that had recently been landscaped and the waterfall and pond completed so it was lush and green with tropical plants all around. We rented some white chairs, tables and threw a party!

It was exactly what we wanted...a family affair with children laughing and playing and lots of love! I wore a plum dress instead of white or ivory because I wanted to wear a color that looks good on me. I broke all the rules for this wedding and it was a blast with no stress. I loved it!

My flowers were orange lilies, hydrangeas and something else purple. The orange lilies were significant because they were Shannon's favorite flower. Shannon was my dear sil that passed away two years ago very suddenly. She was a pea and some of you may remember her and the story of how she passed. She and I were so close and I wanted to have a little bit of her with me for the ceremony. She was with me every step of the way. It was her passing at the age of 37 that made me realize that life is too short to be in an unhappy marriage. She would love Ken, my husband. She would totally agree that he is the perfect man for me.

My son walked me "down the aisle"...

Motto of a powerful woman:

Live your life in such a way that when you get up in the morning and your feet hit the floor...Satan shudders and says "Oh shit...she's awake!"
