Love on the Brain

With all the hearts and flowers circulating this week, I started thinking ahead to SwingDaddy and my ten year wedding anniversary this summer. During the move, we unearthed the videotapes that kind relatives had made of our wedding, and perhaps it will be the right occasion to play them for the first time. Yep, we’ve never watched them.

The day was so perfect in my head that I didn’t need to see it on tape. We’re too used to reviewing video to critique a performance, and we didn’t want to fall into that mode out of habit, so we tucked the tape away for the future.

So before VHS goes obsolete, we’d better take a look. Good thing we kept the old VCR! At least my dress won’t look out of style, since it was already dated, designed after an 1848 ballgown.

I also thought about having the top layer of our wedding cake recreated, since it was so yummy, but I just discovered that the bakery closed last September. It would have been a nice touch, but Q will be so thrilled about any confection (“Cakie, cakie, cake!”) that it’ll add excitement to anything we end up bringing home.

Someday, I want to host an elaborate ball again, but this is not the year. This is a year about babies and little boys.

Home on the Fringe banners are awesome. Good luck coaxing Kristen out of retirement!

How fun to watch your own wedding video, especially since you haven't as of yet.

Cake, yum! I'm with Q, any kind of confection would work.

How fun! We can't watch our wedding video anymore because we've never had it converted from VHS and I just can't bring myself to buy another VCR.

If you ever host a ball, I will be BEGGING for an invitation!

Wow. We didn't do much to celebrate 10, actually. My dress was from 1955, so it doesn't really date, either, and is perfectly plain and simple. But we have no video. Hell, we barely managed ophotos.
