Although I didnt make it to 4 a.m. (I went to bed at 2 a.m.) to see THE ROYAL WEDDING.  I did however wake up strangely alert at 6:30 and turn on the television to catch Will & Kate still at the altar in The Abbey.

It was a very sweet ceremony but the best part is watching a couple come out of the church into the world together.   It was amazing to see of the country so excited about their union, it is after all a piece of their history.

I remember watching when his mother got married it seems like just yesterday only in was 30 years ago (yes, I was 9 at the time).   Sweet thing is that my 4 year old was staring at the television and saying "Do you see the princess? She is wearing a tiara, that's what princesses wear, right?"   It was a Real Life Fairytale for her to watch.

Usually it's a Disney story which we love too!   But my daughter has taken the princess thing a little to far.  She comes home from school and puts on her Princess dress (Disney store Princess Tiana costume) and if I call her Samayah she says....My name is Princess Tiana I told youuuuuuuuu!  I think I'll let her live in Fairytale land a little longer.

I learned something today from a blogging buddy in Miami Lynda from Focal Point.  She has a great post up today about the Union Jack flag and the way is it used in Fashion and Home Decor.  Check it out!

I dont acknowledge my Irish heritage that often for my own personal reasons but I was surprised today about the history of the flag, so I thought I would share as well.

It is made from the crosses of St. Andrew(Scotland),St George (England), and St. Patrick (Ireland) thus being named The Union Jack for uniting 3 countries (im not sure that is true if you ask Irish & Scots) lol

It is one of the most beautiful flags..it is just so striking.

Well Im happy that I witnessed a piece of history today and hope they live out the fairytale.  Im sure Princess Diana is smiling down from heaven to know her boy has found his true love and real life princess.

To Prince William & Princess Catherine

Also a reminder to keep those who lost their lives and loved ones in the horrible tornadoes in the southern states!  Pray for them to stand strong and make it through!

God Bless!


  1. Kids grow up so fast these days...It is nice for them to stay in Fairytale Land for as long as they want :)

  2. I watched as I got ready for work this morning, I think we all need a little fairy tale in our lives.
    I laughed at those who tried to tease me for being online at work to see The Kiss. I just couldn't help myself!
    Thanks for the education on the flag! Have a great weekend!
