    The wedding was perfect! looking back i am so happy that I didn't change anything about it.  It was my dream wedding for sure!

     

    with regards to my family, there have been a few attempts from my estranged aunt.  About a month after my wedding i wrote to her requesting another get together to talk every thing out and she didn't reply.  Last Christmas she came to my house while I was at work and left presents on my front porch....I wasn't too happy about that....i'm not 5 and can't be bribed with gifts.  I called her for her to explain...she refused to take ownership for anything she said and did and insisted I owed her the apology. 

    I donated the gifts.... 

    a few months ago she mailed me pictures of my deceased father with a note saying "keep them or throw them out...i don't care"

     

    that I believe was her attempt to get i rise out of me but I have not responded.

     

    my entire family has "cut me off".  they have deleted me from facebook and don't reach out on birthdays or holidays. 

     

    Sorry for the long winded reply, its been a tough road.  Fortunately I have an amazing husband and a fantastic group of girlfriends and the cutest baby girl in the world.  My life is as it should be.

     

    hopefully you are not going through the same thing...if you are...keep your head up and smile (people hate that!) lol

    I am so happy to hear your wedding day was everything you dreamed it would be. As for your family it saddens me to think that they would treat you that  way. I guess they made their bed and now must deal with it. It's a damn shame they are missing out on your life with your new family and sweet baby girl. Their lose I am SURE. I hope that in the future your aunt and other memeber of the family will come to their senses and realize they were wrong. I couldn't imagine treating my family that way. Wish you the best in the future!!! thanks for the response!
