4 Ways to Stop Singing the Post-Wedding Blues

My eldest daughter is getting married (crash the cymbals, shout from the rooftops)! My first engaged child and first wedding. I grew up with my husband in the same small town, so our courtship and marriage were a very easy and natural extension of my life and our relationship. SinceĀ 4 of my 5 kids are in a marriageable stage of life, I’m realizing it’s not so easy for everyone, and has become a harder proposition for young adults these days.
