We Can’t Turn Back Time and Make This IGYB Cover Any Better

Wedding Photos

Oh my...so much to blog about...so little energy with this flu I caught on my honeymoon!

The Cherlights: my friends chipped in and got me the ringmaster doll for my wedding! What a surprise! I love it!

I also want to talk about the end of the book Julie & Julia which I read on my honeymoon. I didn't like the book but I did feel the end related in some ways to this blog. I also can't wait to talk about the honeymoon: a drive up to Oregon and back. Between my mom's hometown, the dreary fishing & lumber village of Port Orford and the town to the north, Bandon, there is a Bono road. I remembered this from my childhood. There was also a local fishing boat called Half Breed.

Anyway, the wedding was quite fairy tale. And I'll describe it in detail as soon as possible.Here are some good pics:

Who knew you were so babe-alicious?

Nice photos. Beautiful dress, and you and your groom look divine. Congratulations.



Mary: Congratulations! -- it sounds like your wedding day was perfect! And that is so cool that you got the Ringmaster Cher Doll -- you definitely have some great friends!! Have you taken her out of the box yet?

JD, no need to apologize! Please continue to be your jealous self! This blog needs a good foil indeed. I have more to say about your post...don't know where to begin about the Gemini brother I do indeed have. He is not gay but he does have this jake gyllenhaal quality my friends continually crush on (even at the wedding...sigh). I do know of May Sarton...she's in many of my poetry anthologies. But it's her novel I want to read, "The Small Room." Please send your Cher poem if you're open to sharing it.

Thank you RP and Dann! Dann, I have not taken my doll out of the box. I have a two doll box rule. Do not take the doll out of the box unless you have two dolls so you will always have one MIB!


wow. that's the best one yet. I really love the feel it evokes,absolutely a perfect wedding.Great work!
