Going to the Chapel......And We're Gonna Get Married.....

OK....I can't believe I'm really going to do this....
Like, post "grown-up" pictures of me on my blog for all the world to see...
I hate every single photo that has ever been taken of me....
And part of this blogging thing allowed me to be somewhat "anonymous..."
But...with the hullabaloo surrounding the royal wedding, Traci from York Mountain Mercantile ( http://yorkmountainprimitives.blogspot.com/) decided to share her wedding memories and invited others to do the same and link up.
So....here goes.....

(Keep in mind, I suspect I am much older than Traci, and I KNOW my wedding was many, many, more years ago than hers.....)






(Awesome cake made by my aunt/godmother...)




Funny, hey????

And, one last wedding memory.....my mom & dad.....
(when my husband saw this photo for the first time on the day I picked out my wedding dress, he said "Wow...now I know exactly what you're going to look like....):



(Sorry about the funky spaces between the photos, etc., but I scanned these in and am kind of new to that task....apparently, I didn't do something right, but told Traci I would try....Now look fast, because I'm likely to change my mind about doing this and delete this entire post (if I can figure THAT out!!) ;o))
