Blue Monday - Married!

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

You may have noticed that last week there was a link that took you right back here to Smiling Sally. Frustrating, wasn't it? That happened because a blogger did NOT check her link. There was nothing that I could do to fix it because she did not leave me a comment! Therefore, I had no clue to her identity and could not locate her. {sigh} Please, please check your link.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our firstborn granddaughter, Lauren Elise, was married this past Friday to her love, Christian.
What a special time we all had! Christian's favorite color is . . . you got it: Blue!

Lauren chose purple and Blue for their wedding colors.
The bride's attendants and family wore purple, and the groom's attendants and family wore Blue.











The wedding took place at Grace Family Church.
Our talented daughter-in-law, (Lauren's mother, Sharon) designed the setting.


Happy, Happy Blue Monday!

Dear Sal,
Hi!
Yes, blue is a lovely colour, and as the French song, (a theme of yours): "Bleu, blue, l'Amour est bleu...". -The love is blue.

Happy Blue Monday!
best wishes,
AnnA
