She's all grown up!

 Cassie & Richard's Summer photos

My beautiful granddaughter Cassandra met a wonderful Englishman.
They became friends. Very close friends.
They traveled to England to view the Olympic Games.
They became runners themselves.
Neither ran away. 
He bought a ring. She bought a gown.
They set a date.
This week his family flew across the pond.

Last evening in the North Carolina countryside, as the sun went 
down, we had a wedding rehearsal and a fabulous dinner.
We met lovely new people. British accents were heard. 
A little English princess was dressed like a rose, but named Lily. 
Her tiny baby sister never cried, instead smiled at all we strangers 
with her clear baby blues.

As we sleep I think we'll all be dreaming of a beautiful wedding.
