Like much of the world, I was enamored with the wedding of Charles and Diana. My plans to stay up all night and watch the wedding were interrupted by the birth of our first daughter.
I came home from the hospital the day it was going to be replayed, but I arrived home to a surprise baby shower from our youth group kids. (My husband was a youth pastor.)
It was super thoughtful, BUT . . . I was a bit overwhelmed and I missed the wedding, again.
For the Royal Wedding of Andrew and Sarah, we were in Scotland with a group of high school students. The church we were working with, wanted to plan a cultural experience for this gaggle of American kids. So they rented a telly and cooked up a wonderful bunch of Scottish treats. (millionaire shortbread . . . YUM.)
It was super thoughtful, BUT . . . the rental company set the television up on a big stage and when the students opened the theater type curtains, the television came crashing to the floor. We had to pay 300 pounds (around $500) to the rental company. At least this time I saw the wedding.
This Friday, will be the Royal Wedding of William and Kate. Hmm, I wonder what the day will hold for me . . . *smile*
Are you getting up early to watch the Royal Wedding?
