Waking at 4:08AM to the sound of baby raccoons twittering outside of her bedroom window, my mother jumped to her feet to begin the makings of her “Wedding Tea”. My mom is an “anglophile. Someone who is especially fond of England and all that is British.
So you can only imagine the excitement in her voice when she called to invite me to her viewing party of the Royal Wedding. At first I chuckled to myself…how silly. However, I too was soon caught up in the excitement of watching a happy bit of history in the making. There is so much horror in the world…it is a nice break from “reality”.
So it began before 5AM. So fun to watch the royal procession arrive in the Jaguars with “lesser royals” pulling up in the fancy minibuses. Have you heard of a”fascinator”? Apparently, many of the young ladies had them on. Small, stylish hats…
So, the world of the English Royalty shall continue. A vibrant young couple has captured the hearts of the romantics left in the world.
I have to admit…I’m one of them.
