One week from today Tara is getting married, a mother’s perspective

OMG! One week from today my daughter Tara will be getting married. I have blogged about this before but to recap Tara and Kelly have been together for over 5 ½ years. They have always talked about getting married and having babies. They are almost there. Just a few more steps until they (Tara) fulfill that dream.

Kelly has been a typical male procrastinator and has not yet given Tara her engagement ring or officially proposed. He bought the ring a couple of weeks ago but the guy who they send the rings to size has been on vacation for the last two weeks. Kelly wanted to give Tara the ring last Saturday before her bridal shower so she could show it off to her friends.

My niece and Tara’s best friend have been hounding Kelly about when he is going to give her the ring and actually propose. So the plan is that today Kelly will suggest that they go on a long drive and somewhere along the way Kelly will stop and propose and give Tara the ring.
