Have you heard of the saying "Always the bridesmaid but never the bride?". I almost believed that for the reason that I was a bridesmaid for the longest time. I was a bridesmaid 9 times and 3 out of those times I caught the brides bouquet. After my 9th time as a bridesmaid it became a family joke that I can start my own bridesmaid boutique due to all the dresses I have in my closet. I was fortunate enough to have family and friends who wanted me to be a part of the bridal entourage. Like the movie "27 Dresses" I had about 5 bridesmaid dresses in my closet and I loved wearing all of them. I may not have looked as breathtaking as the bride but my dresses were made to fit me. So I guess 9th time is the charm, I am not married for 4 years this coming Valentines to the love of my life. Since I was a bridesmaid so many time it makes me wonder if my kids are going to take after me, lol. It will be great in a way so my kids don't get married early or I won't see my girls walking down the aisle. We will have to leave it to destiny to unfold itself.
