You know what would suck? Being compared to your beautiful now deceased Princess Mother-in-Law on your wedding day... and forevermore




Ya know what would be worse? Being the soon-to-be husband of the woman who keeps getting compared to your deceased Princess MOTHER who died tragically in a car accident... forever...


Yep... that'd be rough.

BUT!

They still got a fairy tale wedding so I'm going to go ahead and say it all evened out (the evermore comparing part - clearly not the dying part - cause that would be pretty sick).  I will also say that I loved watching the ceremony. Those British - I love them. They've always done it "this way" and they will always do it "this way" and no one will ever make them do it any other way. The British are so constant. England has a timeless and magical soul I've always admired. I spent 6 weeks one year soaking in the wonders of London, Canterbury, some lovely English countryside, Bath, and New Castle and knew upon my arrival it would never quite be enough until I returned back to live there always. And I will live there. Mark my words. England is the place for me!


Thus, I hold, and have for sometime, the strong belief I should've been born British. Perhaps I will tell you about this sometime; but suffice it to say, America would never socially accept such an exuberant number of lovely ladies' hats. This, I feel, is one of our most egregious oversights. Alas.

We should have a hat party....and go to England. I've never been.

I agree 110% with all of the above. I will, however add, that I was confused when I saw Lady Gaga sitting behind the queen. Imagine my dismay when I realized it was Princess Beatrice!

Also! Remember when I awkwardly saw you in the chapel the other day? I couldn't recall your name and then you were on the phone, and basically I live a life composed of just such awkward moments as that. It was unexpected and nice to see you!

Jessica! Ha! I do remember and so sorry - I was mid-phone convo and probably looked confused and glazed over. I was trying to direct my 18 year old brother to SLCC. It took all my patience and concentration. ALL of it. Alas.

Jaime - yes and double yes! Pip! pip!

Please tell me that you did not get up at 3am to watch it.

Pete - so what if I did? What's it to YOU? Naw I didn't. I DVR'ed it then fast-forwarded to the actually wedding part. So I watched about 45 minutes total. ;)
