I must confess...(and better late than never)...
this post, I somehow had a slight change of heart. YES, I was still sick of every other story on my People Magazine app being Royal Wedding related. BUT...I realized that I just HAD to watch. How could I not? After all, it was history in the making.
Now I didn't go crazy, and set my alarm for 4am (why would I need to? I have an alarm clock that goes off around then, anyway...his name is Gabriel...). I did, however, set my DVR.
When I awoke at a civilized hour, I immediately tuned into the event.
And I was mesmerized.
As I should have been all along. This is a true life fairly tale! Kate Middleton was about to become a princess. She actually grew up and met her Prince Charming!
As I watched, I simply couldn't wait to see her emerge from her hotel so that I could see what her gown would look like. In the meantime, I adored seeing all of the guests arrive, in their oh-so-fabulous hats. My, how I would have loved to be there.
Turns out, Kate's gown was worth the wait. (And, of course, I also admired her tiara.) She looked absolutely stunning in such a demure, princessy way. Her walk down the never-ending aisle was pure magic.
But mostly, I loved watching the ceremony. I loved seeing how the couple looked at one another so sweetly. I loved the smiles on their faces. I loved how it seemed like to the two of them, they were the only people present. I got caught up in the moment, and was even a little emotional about the beauty of it all.
I sincerely hope that these two live happily ever after.
