Long Lost Love

I reunited with an old friend today:

It's been quite a while since I picked up a wedding magazine (probably somewhere around four years?) But this particular issue called to me in a way few others had...I saw it several times while waiting in line at Giant Eagle, and eventually I couldn't resist its siren song. I finally caved and picked it up today...just to look. Three pages in, I was done for. I told Dustin, with all the seriousness in the world, "I NEED this." And in the cart it went. I'm a sucker for weddings, and I love Martha, so it's a tough battle to look away from the glossy goodness every month. But once giant balloons and a special craft section get involved, I can hardly be held accountable for my actions. I read it all the way home, nearly squeeling with delight.

So tell me- Is it worse to be the girl who picks up the wedding magazine long before there's a ring on her finger? Or the girl who's been married (almost) four years, and still can't resist the fantasyland? Either way, I'm pretty sure I was, and am, that girl.


  1. As long as you share the knowledge that you glean from the glossies, I'm glad you're "that girl".

  2. Um, I almost bought that magazine too...glad I'm not alone. The idea was just too creepy for me though.

  3. I can't believe it. I bought it too, as it was calling to me over the jack hammering in Kroger the other day. I rationalized it with "great craft and table ideas and I can take it to Courtney on Friday to share." Guess I'll have to keep it all to myself. I too made happy sounds as I poured over each page and Vern didn't even 20 years for me!
    PS. They had me with the balloons!

  4. Christina, you can borrow mine!!
    And mom- yes, the balloons were irresistible! So funny how we think alike.
