Last night we set the alarm for 3:55 a.m., with no thanks to the time zones but a lot of anticipation for tuning into the Royal Wedding.
Yes, I’ve watched and loved every second of it.
I remember my Mom’s admiration for Princess Diana, and I never really understood the captivation. As I got older I loved seeing pictures of her, and loved all the magazines and books that came out after she passed. But until this fresh, young, new engagement, I didn’t understand the full appeal.
While I wasn’t running out to purchase every cover they appear on, or read every last article printed about the nuptials, I was more than happy to wake up before dawn this morning and watch history happen. And as D can attest, I hopped right onto the couch and watched with a silly grin as the LIVE coverage began. Yup, I even took pictures.
Clearly, now, I get it!
She looked stunning; they played off each other with friendly, happy interactions; like everyone else who got up to watch, I’m officially hooked.
I thought of you, Mom! I hope you saw it, too. 🙂
With that, I’m off to do the other thing I happily get up early for –
a morning run.
Who else woke up to watch this morning – how early was your alarm set?
Happy Friday, Royal Wedding Day, and birthday to you, Larisa!
