Let me back up a little. Yesterday, our official "Royal Wedding Anniversary," I returned from work to find this:
Three dozen roses! (Almost one for every year we've been married!)
It's a good thing I love working with flowers. I pulled out this beautiful vase we received as a gift from a Swedish foreign exchange student we hosted one year. It is reserved for special occasion flowers!
There are some similarities between the two weddings. First there were hats. Yup, I had a cap style hat with an extra long veil. All the bridesmaids had matching hats as well. Like the Queen, my mom also wore yellow. However mom had a long linen dress with a matching full length coat. It was so classy and she also looked like a million bucks!
Lastly, Fran and I drove off in his car that said "Just Married' and we had balloons attached. I believe ever woman is a princess on their wedding day and, in their eyes it is a Royal Event. Best of luck to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may your marriage last as long as ours has.
