There’s just something about royalty. We all feel it. There’s tradition, mystery, beauty, romance- all the things we are supposed to think about, right? I’ve been watching a bunch of “royal” films lately- The King’s Speech, the Tudors (TV series)- and period pieces- Emma, Pride and Prejudice- that have totally put me in the mood for the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton today. Though I did not get up at 5am to see the nuptuals, I did watch the rebroadcast online and loved every minute. The grandure of her entrance. The fantastic cathedral. The soundtrack-esque LIVE music. The promanade to the palace. The palace. The kiss. Wow. Her life is really about to change.
So, in honor of the royal day I went out and bought myself something pretty at a lovely new second hand store in my neighborhood. It’s a ring (hard to see the band in the pictures) about an inch and a half in diameter and I feel so grand. 🙂
