I'm a sucker for a great romance. Quite frankly my lovely beau lacks in the romantic, but makes up for it by being honest, affectionate and as loyal as they come (I'm so lucky). All the #RoyalWedding hoopla was annoying me to no avail, and then something changed. I decided that I should be part of the wedding of the century. I set my DVR for the six hours of CNN coverage and tuned in at noon the next day to watch the events unfold on my own time. I was mostly blown away (I can't image how tired Kate and William and their respective wedding attendees were after such a busy day). I loved her dress - Catherine Middelton was such a sight. Pippa looked amazing. And I couldn't help but buy into the excerpts that a 'lip reading expert' proclaimed. William and Harry looked so dapper. The queen looked very yellow and Camilla looked like rigid #$%^. Here are some of my favorite snapshots.
