I’m trapped in a glass case of EMOtion

This past weekend was my bestest bestie’s wedding. Love was in the air, God gave us a beautiful day, everyone was on time, and the bride and groom have a romance to envy.

So naturally I spent the day being so EMOtional I should have looked like this:

Well I looked like that on the inside. On the outside I was a preppy, pink silk wearing, matching pearl necklace and earring sporting, tears into a pink and white handkerchief dripping, in the front pew sitting-bridesmaid.

I got a little emo at the reception also. All the love and romance made me a little schmoopy, hubby humored me and what resulted was a picture that maybe just maybe could be on the cover of a contemporary romance novel. What do you think?

(be warned, this pic is disgustingly FULL of schmoop)


Nothing beats a real life romance story. I didn’t need or want to read one romance novel this weekend, well I didn’t have much time to read at all, but I got all my romance-jollies off on the twue wove that was everywhere I looked at this beautiful wedding. When I told y’all about my fridge full of STDs (don’t worry I’ll have an update soon) I shared a few real-life-real-love links and have a few more for your perusal today as well.

Well starting with an update, Pioneer Woman Ree completed her Black Heels to Tractor Wheels story compilation of her an her husband’s whirlwind romance culminating in the four part story of their wedding. The SECRET is that her everyday life is so full of romance in every blog post she writes. I get a little misty eyed at her writing and pictures at least once a week.

Also, Cassie from Southern Domestic Goddess had a super-cute post up today about her wedding anniversary. And, much like Pioneer Woman, in all of Cassie’s posts about her family, the love they share shines through.

Lastly, like the appropriate fangirl I am, True Love blossomed on TrueBlood with costars Anna Paquin and Steven Moyer taking their onscreen romance home with them. Oooh lala this makes my heart go pitter patter.
