This past weekend Ron and I had the honor of attending my niece’s wedding at Brant Lake in upstate New York. Christianne Smith married her best friend and soulmate William Potts! We are so excited that Christianne’s long awaited dream has come true for her. And she couldn’t have picked a kinder, gentler, or more loving man than Bill. We are so blessed to have him in our family.
What a gorgeous weekend it was! The weather was amazing, the location was breathtaking, and the closeness of friends and family permeated the entire event from beginning to end. I was so excited to be invited to attend the rehearsal dinner as I was doing a reading during the wedding. And I can’t express how touched I was by Christianne’s gracious thank you to me and how we are truly connected by a special bond in our creativity, love of family, and giving nature. We are not only family; we are kindred spirits. And I can feel the depth of her happiness deep in my heart!
One of the highlights of the wedding was when there was a dare to make snow angels on the snow covered lake. Christianne is ready for any kind of fun and Bill followed her onto the lake where holding hands they fell back onto the snow, knowing that they would be safe in each other’s arms through life’s joys and challenges. They truly are angels in love, and we look forward to being part of their lives as they grow their relationship and build their family, together in love, knowing that their snow angels are watching over them and guiding them through life.
