Going To The Chapel

As I sit here watching the Royal Wedding this morning, I can't help but get emotional.  This wedding brings up so many memories for me.  First, I immediately think of Diana.  As a young girl I was always in awe of Diana and my mother loved her dearly and would often talk about her or watch specials about her on TV.  I can still remember hearing the tragic news as a sophomore in high school.  It rattled me to the core and I remember my Mom crying for days as she watched it all splash across the media.  

Then in 2001, I studied abroad at Cambridge and discovered how much I love British culture and life.  If I ever had to live outside the United States, England would be my first stop.  
I can still remember the sunny, May 2005 day I stood outside Buckingham Palace with my dear friend Kim.  We stared up in wonder and could not help but think about what it would be like to call a place like Buckingham "home."

As a child and especially as a teen, I swore I would grow up and marry Prince WIlliam.  I ended up with the prince fit for me, my Mr. D, but I must say I do approve of Kate Middleton to marry my beloved William.  :)    
I love the men William and Harry have grown up to become and I think all these years later Diana would be proud of her boys.  

I am so so so excited for William and Kate today!  They appear to have such a wonderful and loving relationship, with strong heads on their shoulders.  I set the alarm for 4 AM and turned the television on as soon as my alarm sounded.  I have been waiting for this day for months.  I am absolutely intrigued, inspired and obsessed with Miss Catherine Middleton, soon to be Princess of Whales.  She is classy,  beautiful and seemingly perfect.  I cannot wait to see the dress today!  I know it will be perfect in every way.  Will it be Alexander McQueen?  I certainly hope so!  

Now you must excuse me...Kate is in the car and on her way...and I'm sitting in here in tears.  (I'm pretty sure Mr. D thinks I've lost my mind, by the way.)  Yes, I'm a sap.  I love weddings and this wedding is the biggest wedding of my lifetime, other than my own wedding.  SWOON!  Kate looks amazing.  It's a McQueen after all and absolutely PERFECT!

Sorry this post is all over the place.  I'm in a emotional, yet happy, state and my thoughts are going a mile a minute.  I hope you're up and watching this history being made too!  

CHEERS TO WILL & KATE!  Mr. D & I wish you a lifetime of love, health and happiness to together.  

Mrs. D
