Today is our 25th anniversary. 25 YEARS, PEOPLE!
Don’t judge me, OK? In the day, not a single bride ever wore a strapless gown, because you would be struck down my lightning
if you were on an altar wearing a revealing dress. I mean, it’s no fun getting smote by a priest and doomed to eternal damnation.
Meg has had a whirlwind week of activity this past week. In an ironic twist, her oldest niece, the one who was the most adorable flower girl at Meg’s wedding, got hitched herself:
Meg sprinkled a few stars in the background of her photo because she IS a star.
The crowd surprised Meg and Leo the evening before with a lovely cake and a card with heartfelt wishes, and she especially like the one that said:
Hope the next 25 years is better than the first.
She is 100 percent sure her brother in law meant “EVEN” better.
The couple enjoyed themselves mingling and reminiscing about all the fun they had with the bride when she was a kid, and she
told Meg that “you were always there for the milestones in my life.” Meg could not have asked for a better anniversary present, but the bride had one more little surprise in store for the couple; and she had the DJ announce Meg and Leo’s anniversary, and he then played their first song which was “Stand By Me“.
Meg was presented with a bouquet of her very own, and the bride of 25 years ago stood proudly with the bride today:
So today Meg is packing for her trip to France. She is on the emotional roller coaster; it was the 9/11 anniversary yesterday, today is her 25th wedding anniversary, and it also would have been her Dad’s 79th birthday. She’s lucky she had her Dad’s steady arm when she walked down the aisle on September 12th, 1987, and she’s equally glad she has another steady arm in her husband.
Au revoir kids, until October!
