Handing Off The Tiara

We drove 3 1/2 hours on Friday morning with a large melting cake in the trunk and equally melting chocolate covered strawberries.

The cake made it - and was delicious. Picture coming tomorrow.

So what was the occasion?

My father got married.

It was really perfect and wonderful. I thought I'd make it through it without tears but that was over the minute I walked down the aisle with Mr. M as my escort. THen I tried to compose myself so I could sing for them. I couldn't look at my dad - I would have burst into tears.

I still can't figure out why I was so emotional. I think it was because I was so damn happy that my father has found someone to be his companion for the rest of his life. They really are perfect for each other.

I was asked to give a toast and I couldn't think of what to say - so I asked Mr. M for what he thought was the best thing to say.

He said, "you could give up princess"

I knew what he meant.

So sure enough during the toast I allowed my father's new wife to take over my sister and I's princess status.

It was tough.

But I'm somebody elses princess now.

It's so lovely that you write with such love and conviction about your Dad and his new wife. Congratulations to your Dad, and to you as well for a new member of the family it sounds like you care about.
