Rena and Brenda have put out the challenge to post wedding pictures. Mine have experienced some damage, which is why there's a sort of mossy growth on my forehead.
I was having a bad hair day experience. My hair was long, to the middle of my back. I wanted some curl in it, so I got a perm. The perm fried my hair and I had to have it all cut off. I was devastated. When I was about 8 Mom gave my short hair a perm and I hated it. So here I was on my wedding day with the same short curly hair!
We got married outside, under a cedar elm tree by the Guadalupe River at the home of my friends. That year there was a bumper crop of wild flowers called liatris. My friend, who was my matron-of-honor, and I went out along the country roads and gathered arm loads. I had in no way planned for my wedding color to be lavender, yet all the little accessories (ribbons, boutonnieres, cake decorations, crape-paper streamers) miraculously were the same color.
Last September on the 21st, Stan and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary. We are both surprised and delighted we have been together that long.
I think I'll keep him.
