Can anyone relate?
I only mention this to explain my conspicuous earliness for this post. You see, tomorrow, not today, we'll be celebrating our anniversary. Yep. Twenty seven years ago tomorrow, Sir Lotsa Hair took this talkative woman to be his lawfully wedded wife.
So I'm heading to Atlanta to meet him there for our annual celebration. In twenty-seven years of marriage, we've had years of plenty and years of want, but through it all, we've always managed to do something special to celebrate.
If you do the math, you'll calculate that I got married in 1984, smack dab between Diana and Fergie.
Which means that I had a Big Fat 80s Wedding
I wore a big old 80s princess dress complete with pouf sleeves and ruffled lace. My veil was attached to a ring of fresh flowers. (I'm pretty sure Fergie stole that idea from me, but I've never been able to prove it.)
My bridesmaids were bedecked in magenta taffeta,
...bless their hearts.
pouf thing going on as well, and long trains which swished around at the altar and .... um....bustled up for the reception.
Which was outside
Yeah, I'm not sure what I was thinking either, but I had always wanted an outdoor reception, and the Duchess was all about making dreams come true.
When I think back on that day, I'm pretty sure I would change some things. It would be a little smaller, and a little cooler, and hopefully a little less itchy.
But even though I'll concede that those magenta frocks might be candidates for the movie 27 Dresses, and the outdoor reception might not have been the wisest choice, I still think that was all pretty special.
And even though that skinny boy has wrinkles around his twinkles and a little gray in his lotsa hair, I still think he's pretty special, too.
So what about about you?
Is there anything you would change about your special day?
