I know that there has been some criticism over the excessive amount of coverage and attention paid to something viewed not as important as war, politics or tragedy, but I beg to differ. In a time when the world is topsy-turvey with all sorts of devastation and wickedness. When families are often broken and there is so much sadness being spewed from every media source. It's so refreshing to have so many people gather around their TVs to watch, in fascination, with what I think is life's greatest joy-marriage. When the world has begun, in popular culture, to turn it's back on marriage, I love that there is so much celebration over that one thing. I love watching William and his brother laugh and joke together and to see so much talk and reverence of families. I know it's made me reflect about my own wedding and remember all those wonderful feelings and to feel so much joy at finding my own prince and my own fairytale. Whether or not William and Kate truly love each other or not, I love that that's what we are all excited about. We all hope for someone that we can love as our best friend and lover. That we can create a family that cares about and loves each other. And we all want that to continue forever. I'm happy to believe that it can through Jesus Christ and His gospel.
P.S. I'm absolutely going mad over all of the crazy hats. Where do I get me one of those? And when can I get invited to something where I can wear it?

P.S. Thanks for the comments. I'm happy to hear your stories and experiences. And really, I just love knowing someone is reading this thing.

I'm sure some of you just inwardly shook your heads at my very unpopular and seemingly bad mom comment. If you decide to un-friend me on Facebook I'll understand. But I know there are plenty out there silently screaming "Amen sister!"

We had the best time hanging out with Nicole and her girls. Nicole and I met the first night to enjoy a night at the MET sans girl-children. We had a fantastic night eating and scouring the galleries. Nicole knew where everything was and we saw so much in a short period of time ( I did a terrible job when Russ, the girls and I headed back). We also met the next day at the Life and Science Museum where Nicole showed us around again and we both lamented over a crazy, anal security guard who had made it her life mission to make sure no child ran. Poor woman has a very futile quest ahead of her. I really wanted to run circles around her myself, just to see what she'd do. We then had dinner together and went shopping where Nicole helped me find some very cute sandals. The next day, Nicole had us over for Sunday dinner and both the dinner, dessert and company were amazing. Genevieve and Hannah had such a fun time playing with Elle and Sophie. The four of them were beautiful dancers together. Thanks Nicole for an amazing time!!

|This little girl was amazing. She had been working, really working, for three hours and was still filling up cups when we got there.|
