funny how things line up.
i borrowed a copy of elizabeth gilbert's most recent book, her follow-up to "eat pray love"--"committed". i'm about half-way through. it's about marriage--about getting and staying, about avoiding and considering; it's about the history of marriage, both recent and long ago. fascinated and curious, i am.
we really didn't know a lick of anything when we married (big red and i). it's a statistical miracle we are still married. we didn't have a whole lot going for us. under 30, both took on new jobs just before getting hitched, not much money, red was still going to school and a honeymoon baby. but here we are--still together.
tomorrow is the big wedding in the u.k.--or haven't you heard. ;)
i'm not that interested, but i need to be home a good part of the day tomorrow to finish up a project. so i'll probably catch highlights.
i watched back in 1981 when charles married diana. and like many young girls, i secretly wished to be a princess like that. that amazes me now. why? why? why? probably because i didn't understand a lick about marriage. it was still all fairytales and butterflies, in my thoughts then.
it's alright though, as it appears i am not really royality-friendly.
i am, however taking last minute reservations for the nuptials. in honor of william and kate's upcoming wedding...
your royal wedding guest name - start with either lord or lady. your first name is one of your grandparents’ names. your surname is the name of your first pet, double-barreled with the name of the street you grew up on.
love and light and cheerio
