Across the meadow, Valerie stood with both her own father and her soon to be father-in-law. Every step she took was filled with excitement. The entire day was filled with joy.

It’s one of those moments that little girls dream about. Walking down the aisle to the person they love more than anything in this world. And it was one moment that Valerie very nearly didn’t get.
Because of my job I tend to mark the passing of time by season, rather than month. If it’s raining it’s spring. If it’s 80 and sunny, it’s spring and if it snows, it just might be spring. Colorado can never seem to make up her mind which season is which.
