Mike and Kate got married this weekend
at a sweet little farm on the outskirts of town
during a summer rainstorm.
We all tiptoed through the soggy, lush grass
to find shelter under a big white tent
where they laughed and cried and said “I do.”
They threw a great big garden party
with champagne toasts,
a gorgeous table filled with fresh foods
and twinkling lights wrapped around branches
that hung from the ceiling.
And then, like magic, blue sky began to peek through the clouds,
clearing the way for radiant sunshine.
The gardens glistened,
the guests flocked to the open lawn
and the happy couple sparkled into the night.
Beauty Tip: The next time it rains, embrace it. Walk in it. Dance in it. Thank it.
