In 1981, I was 9 years old.
Yes, that’s means I’m turning thirty (cough) nine this year. It will be my first time (but not the last. Heh.)
My twin and I were in a lot of weddings that year, princess themed weddings.
But we were passed over for The Royal Wedding. It could have been a prejudice against home permanents. We’ll never know.
At any rate, I remember the Royal Wedding of 1981 very well.
Most of y’all are probably too young to remember it, but some old people on Twitter responded with their memories.
I have a lot on my plate right now….getting ready for Africa, the heavy burden of Mercy House, end of the year school stuff with my kids…my laundry (DEAR LORD, the laundry)…
But I *might* just be throwing caution to the wind, popping some popcorn and watching the wedding tomorrow, while making my 9 year old son wear my 9 year old princess bride dress. Just kidding.
It totally still fits me.
Will you be watching? Don’t give a flying fig? Remember the 1981 wedding or where you were when Princess Di died? I was in a cabin on vacation with my family of three and my parents….
P.S. There’s about a 4% chance I’ll get up that early to plug in my TV, but I will definitely watch a few replays online.
