My maid of honor, my only attendant, wore a lavender dress.
The wedding cake, made with extra butter, was decorated with lavender roses.
Even the rice was dyed lavender.
Yes, everywhere lavender thirty-nine years ago on June 17, 1972:
The lavender rose is often a sign of enchantment and love at first sight. Those who have been enraptured by feelings of love and adoration have used lavender roses to express their romantic feelings and intentions.Since September 15, 2009, Mr. AOW and I have endured many losses. But today we celebrate life — and our life together.
Joan Didion wrote in The Year of Magical Thinking:
"Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant."In other words, make time to cherish your beloved.
Mr. AOW and I know that lesson well.
