the dress.

When it comes to picking out dresses, my Angela deserves a wifetime achievement award. She's had had her gown picked out since she was ten...in fact she wore it when she was ten to win the Miss Tiny Mid-Atlantic Bride. She's been dieting to get down to that very girlish figure. Her lacy frills will cover her from chin to toe; she's going to look just like a grown up Nellie Oleson from Little House on the Prairie - HOT!


















She'll be low bridin' in style with something old, new, borrowed and blue. Something old: the dress was handmade over two decades ago by one of her barren aunts. Something new: she bought a bandage to tie in some of her more womanly parts so she can better fit into her dress as well as look more appropriate for church. Something borrowed: my grandmother's silver pocket watch, Angela has anxiety attacks when she doesn't have a clock on her. And the something blue will actually come from me, I'll be there with the blue blood that runs through my veins... that and a beautiful boutonniere arranged with forget-me-nots to match my baby blue eyes. If she looks half as good as I will standing at that altar, she's going to be a stunning bride.

the date is set.



























Guess what? We decided on a wedding date! November 26th, 2009, Thanksgiving Day! It's genius! All of our guests are sure to make it because everyone will have the day off, in fact most people will have a four-day weekend to commute. And, surprisingly, lots of wedding venues are available. Go figure. Plus Angela and I met in the autumn, so it makes sense that we come together under the golden foliage, exchange our vows and fall deeper in love.
