Happy Endings

I love a happy ending! This past weekend I had the great pleasure to see a dear friend's daughter (my friend as well) marry the man she has waited so long to find.

The day was full of JOY! The wedding ceremony and reception was nothing short of perfection.
....and so it was with a heavy heart when two days later I attended the funeral of a wonderful man who had been married nearly 75 years. To his very last day, he continued to hold his wife's hand and they were fiercely in love... I'd say that was a very happy ending.
In the space of a few days, I witnessed the beginning of one beautiful love story and the ending of another.

If your crazy over weddings and you like a happy ending then the series "The Bride Quartet" by Nora Roberts is just for you. There are four books to the series, each based around four friends who run a wedding planning company.

Book one "Vision in White" chief character is the photographer. Book two "Bed of Roses" features the florist. Book three "Savor the Moment" is of course about the cake baker/decorator and the final book is "Happy Ever After" which of course ties it all together. The books are an easy quick read, no tears, kinda books that make you go "awww". I thought the whole idea was very clever of Ms. Roberts.

Hey there may be another happy ending in the someday future?
Look who got the bridal bouquet.....
