It's January, wedding planning season, and since I have a book about weddings (and mothers and daughters) coming out in August, Gerhardt and I thought it would be fun to go to the nearby West Sound Wedding Show and take a trip down Memory Lane, maybe even make a little book trailer.
I tell you what, it was so much fun and there were so many great ideas and yummy goodies to check out I wished I could get married all over again. To Gerhardt, of course!
We sampled cake, talked to women planning their weddings, and sampled cake, checked out beautiful table settings and, did I mention? Sampled cake! In short, I totally blew my diet. But I had a great time doing it. And it did bring back memories of that lovely day a million years ago when my husband and I said, "I do." A wedding is such a special occasion, not only for the happy couple but for their family and friends, too. It's a chance for us all to come together and support each other, to celebrate love and commitment.
To all you brides getting ready to get married this year, I wish you all the best. And to my readers, looking for a good read this summer, I hope you'll say, "I do," to A WEDDING ON PRIMROSE STREET.
