Royal Wedding Bliss

I have been anticipating the Royal Wedding for weeks. In fact, I've been so excited for this day to arrive, one would think it was my wedding!

I remember watching the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, but only vaguely. I remember my Mom being excited and commenting on Diana’s gown. My sister and I couldn’t understand the intrigue and why my Mom was crying. I do now. Those moments are so special, so naturally, I was excited to share the tradition with my little girl.

I was up at 3am. By 3.15am, I was cuddled on the couch with my blanket, pillow, and cup of tea, prepared for an emotional morning.

My husband joined me on the couch at 4am. A few other guests came around at 4.30am for the viewing party. Our daughter sleepily walked down the stairs at 6am. My little prince was sound asleep in his crib and woke just in time for some bacon butties at 8am. It was fabulous. We enjoyed Prince William's Grooms Cake (see below), Royal Wedding cupcakes, tarts, shortbread, and scones with clotted cream and jam. It was like having high tea, but on a Friday...really early in the morning.

It was a beautiful wedding and a beautiful day. I am so proud to be an honorary Brit as well as one of two billion people watching history being made.

I also ate way too much sugar by 6am and feeling the eff...ects n...ow…zzzzzzzzzzzz


  1. That cake looks way too amazing to keep it a secret!
    If you can give us at least an outline of what it is, that would be appreciated.

  2. Oodles of thanks for your comment!

    I apologize for the omission! I think it was sleep deprivation. The cake is Prince William's Grooms Cake. Super delicious and super easy to make!
