You rock at playing devil's advocate...haha..usually that is me!! One could
also say in this horrible time of war, natural disasters, etc...nurturing the
spirit and soul is as imporant as nurtuing the body. I guess in this case,
the money just did not occur to me at all. Which is surprising since I am poor
as dirt and almost always look at every thing from a money point of view!
haha! I looked at the 30 years of planning, the thoughtfulness..the idea of
this being a gift.... Then I thought about Donald Trump's recent wedding...where
the wedding dress alone cost half a million dollars and weighed 50 pounds or
something like that?? <rolling eyes> Good grief!

I am just so excited to be able to FINALLY particpate in something like this!
 You read about it ...Intellectually understand it but really
can't quite wrap your mind around it....and then there it is....right at your back wee!
