A Royal Anniversary

The famous date of April 29th will lock in Will & Kate’s marriage vows tomorrow. We share this special date with them in our family!

On April 29, 1995, our daughter got married.

To my amazement, her girlfriends motivated all the ladies attending the wedding to wear hats, because that’s what the bride likes...hats. I will never forget walking down that aisle and seeing all the lovely spring hats! You would think it was England. Even I wore one.

Happy anniversary, Amy and Mark!

You will always be royalty to me.

Congratulations to Will and Kate.

Are you attending the royal wedding? Thanks to blogger friend, Beth Endean, I figured out my guest name: Lady Victoria Zipper Roy.

Here’s how you know your Royal Wedding guest name:
Start with either Lord or Lady.
Your first name is one of your grandparent’s name.
Your surname is the name of your first pet
Double barreled with the name of the street you grew up on!

What’s yours?

    I also enjoyed reading about your vacation to San Diego. It's a lovely place.

    I was invited to the Royal Wedding and I saw everything LIVE thanks to YouTube and CNN and the other networks that were covering it.. andI also looked at the replays. It was indeed a perfect royal wedding... not a single hitch.

    The name on the invitation:

    Lady Theodora Snowball del Pan (wow!)
