I Believe in Fairy Tales!

Getting up in the early hours of the morning isn't really my cup of tea. But, I will be up and in front of my television the morning of April 29 to be a part of the celebration of marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Why?

Because I believe in fairy tales and that dreams can come true! I can remember like it was yesterday getting up as a ten year old girl, with my mom and watching Princess Diana marry Prince Charles. I was smitten with the royal family from that day on. We celebrated the union by collecting china pieces and my mom gave me a little commemorative book ....{which I still have to this day, and enjoy looking at it with my youngest daughter.}



Years later as I was looking to get married, my ideal wedding dress was modeled after Diana's. I wanted the long train. When I thought of flowers, I thought of Diana's bouquet of white roses, and even told the florist we hired that was what I was looking for in my flowers.

Pictured above is just a couple of the commemorative items which my mom has from 1981. Back in 1981 my grand dad had a jewelry and china shop and that is where she found her pieces.



So for me, I will be watching with excitement as the next generation of royals wed. I still believe in fairy tales even all these years later. Who knows, maybe I will even have a little girl or two who might get up with me and watch a real life fairy tale!

Pam, I am a real royal watcher too though I'll probably watch it on reruns. My children were little girls when Charles and Diana wed and were also fascinated.

I remember the wonder and awe I felt as I watched the coronation of Queen Elizabeth as an 8 year old.

I believe in fairy tales too. I was too young to remember their wedding but my mom loved it, and she'll probably watch the young ones get marrried soon too!

I'm a huge believer in fairytales...and any time an average girl (OK...Kate Middleton isn't average, but she's not royalty either) marries a prince, it's cause for average girls everywhere to celebrate! Looking forward to watching the wedding!
