I admit it. I recorded the royal wedding. And this morning when Ella and I got up, we watched it. It was like watching a movie, all that pomp and circumstance. The outfits, the carriages, the horses, the cathedral and palace, the hats! It really is a modern fairy tale. The handsome prince and the common but beautiful girl. (Though just between you and me, I think Harry is actually the better looking prince). The ceremony was beautiful. The congregation sung hymns, there was a reading from Romans 12, and the pastor (priest?) gave a Biblically sound message I could agree with. And of course, Kate's dress was stunning, as was her sister's. In fact, Pippa almost created as much buzz with her dress as Kate. In the audience there were enough ridiculous hats for a ... well, for a royal wedding! I think that's a tradition America should adopt. How awesome would it be for it to be proper to leave the house wearing a bunch of feathers piled on my head!? Totally awesome. Anyway, if you weren't one of the 2 billion witnessing royal history, I'm not ashamed to say you missed out!
