Today, She Married a Prince

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge far exceeded the expectations of most.

She chose a dress, reminiscent of Grace Kelly and presented herself with complete class and elegance. I had feared she would appear in a high fashion, modern gown. I was beyond pleased to see her present herself as a princess, evoking every girl's vision of a fairytale. 

The ceremony somehow seemed intimate and focused on family unity. I thought the most charming moment was when Prince Harry turned to see Catherine walk down the aisle while his brother faced forward. Then he whispered to Prince William, perhaps telling him how extremely beautiful she looked.

I loved every moment of the Royal Wedding, but I am unsure of what to say about Princess Beatrice's hat.

Easter Pics

I am a few days late in posting Easter pictures, but it has been a VERY busy week. We had a wonderful Easter Sunday, enjoying family and great food. Of course, we were so excited to see my niece Carsyn in her Easter attire. She actually had one wardrobe change during the course of the day. She is still a bit too small to hide/hunt Easter eggs, but she did fully enjoy her Easter gifts! I can't wait until she is old enough to enjoy a whole Reese's egg.

She looked so cute! Unfortunately, I didn't get any good pictures of her dress and it was absolutely beautiful! However, you can see some great pics at my SIL's blog here .

It's as if she's saying, "Hi Guys! I am having a WONDERFUL Easter!"

A picture after the wardrobe change. She loves to smile for the camera!

It is just amazing how one little girl can make our lives so much better. She brings our
entire family so much happiness.

Hope everyone had a great Easter holiday!
