melissa @ the inspired room

That is so sweet, Charlotte. We had a similar moment when we decided to have our son 8 years after our daughters were born. My husband and I were out to dinner, casually talking about the day, when he surprised me by saying out of the blue "I want us to have another baby because I want to have a big family and lots of grandchildren someday when I am old!" I was shocked, I thought were were done with babies, but we had our son shortly thereafter!

Ah, you bring back sweet memories!

And how wonderful to now go to the wedding of that inspirational girl! It sounds beautiful.



what beautiful memories,
you have such a gift for making beautiful pictures with your words.
thank you,


I remember those have to be young to make decisions so fast. Now I tend to try to make the PERFECT decision ha ha. When I was young I went with emotions now I tend to decide with my mind...which can really be a downer ha ha. Isn't it hard to believe how fast the time does goes? How sweet that this little Chelseah changed your life without even knowing it.

What a bitter sweet day. I can't imagine the wide variety of emotions that will be felt. Wishing them many blessings in their new life togather. Tracy


haope the day was beautiful and everything you both wanted it to be...congratulations to them both...blessings, rebecca


Treasured special.



What a lovely memory!

But why do people insist in weird spellings for their children's names? It only creates complication, not that Chelsea is so easy anyway -- but that additional "H" will haunt her lifelong.

I'll admit, though, that I've always wanted an "e" at the end of my name, too -- so maybe seeking uniqueness is not unique!
