Who knows exactly when it is when you are too old for a good old-fashioned sleepover with girl friends? Even if ages of mid-20s to mid-30s disqualifies us from a fun slumber party on a normal, any-given night, last night was quite the exception.What was so important, you may ask?
The Royal Wedding. Of course it was not our business at all; we dont really even know the couple (though we feel like we do) we still needed to watch the procession, ceremony, and the first public kiss so we can always say that we were invited to the biggest wedding event of the century. Not to mention the fact that many wanted to honor the late Diana by watching her beloved son enter into a loving marriage that they both truly wanted.
Was it worth staying up late talking because thats what women do when they get together? Was it worth getting up at the 4am just to get some muffins (Morning Glory muffins to be exact. For this great recipe, click here) and some coffee going so we can be wide awake for procession? Was it worth it for the mothers in our friends’ group to drag their little ones out of bed to watch this once in a life time wedding? And was it worth risking a full day of tiredness and fatigue just so we would know how stunning Kate looked on her wedding day, how distinguished William stood waiting for his bride, and how ridiculous all the guests’ hats were?
The answer is a resounding “YES!” from all of us.
Will and Kate, we wish you the best! Hope you have a long and happy marriage.
