The Dress

Today as Savannah, the littles, and I
watched the Royal Wedding,
I couldn't help but become more and more excited
for 'Our Royal Wedding' one week from tomorrow!!!

Savannah and I both LOVED the quote~
"every wedding is a royal wedding with the bride and groom
as king and queen of creation,
making a new life together so that life can flow through them into the future."

And then there was the dress!!!
The big girls have always kind of laughed about my wedding dress~
probably the neckline and sleeves...
but as Kate stepped out of her car this morning
and we were able to see her gorgeous dress!!!~

it really took me back to June 21st, 1986
and to my gorgeous dress "handmade"
(every single appliqué, bead, and piece of lace) by Ms. Retha
from a photo I found in a bride magazine.
I see a resemblance ~ do you???
And just look at my Prince Charming. :)

So as we begin the last week count down,
I am thinking back to our wedding
and our 25th anniversary we will celebrate in June.
A lot of reflecting and embracing going on here!!!

All my data (photos) on my crashed external hard drive WAS recovered
and is being sent UPS TODAY!!!
You can be sure as soon as it arrives,
I WILL be backing it up online and to DVDs as well.
Won't ever make that mistake again!!! Whew!


  1. Congrats on getting your pictures back. Can I ask what company you used? I have a hard drive I would like to see if I can recover.

    Thank you,

    Ashley Stuckey

  2. S and L often say that they could each get a dress out of my wedding dress since there was so much fabric! I'd love for one of them to take mine and modify it! That'd be cool! I thought of you all as I watched the wedding today.... so exciting!

  3. I can't believe the wedding is in ONE WEEK!!! Amazing and SO exciting!! I loved the wedding fun!! I loved her dress too, and you still look exactly the same as you did 25 yrs. ago!!!

  4. I definitely see a resemblance! You have great taste.

    Can't wait to see your mother of the bride dress!


  5. The royal wedding is perfect timing! Love the quote and your wedding dress too! The final countdown is on!

  6. You look so beautiful in that dress! I hope one of your girls will wear it someday.

  7. You looked so beautiful on your wedding day! So happy for you....couldn't even imagine how you've been feeling thinking you lost all those photos.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Glad the photos were saved. I love to look at old wedding pictures-you can guess when they're from by the style of the dress and tux, not to mention the hair :-)
