Deborah those are beautiful pictures and a beautiful story.
Still a queen after all these years and just as beautiful now as you were on your wedding day.
Love this! The magic of a tiara was a beautiful way to crown your wedding and anniversary story.
It also brought back memories of our younger daughter, Hannah, who had quite a collection of tiaras from a pretty young age. A few still sit on the bookcases in her room.
Absolutely riveting and beautifully recounted. Every second of it. The tiara still is with you!
Oh, Debra. What a perfect depiction of marriage and life! Miss you!
This is such a moving piece (and the accompanying photos- whoa, so beautiful) - the yearning for perfection, the acknowledgement of it's impossibility or that it's entirely possible once we adjust our definition of what perfect looks like. I love how you use the tiara so effectively as a symbol throughout the piece and of course I hear you so much in your words which I love - your unique and funny and wistful perspective.
It was indeed a beautiful wedding, captured perfectly by this story. I still remember how stunning you looked, tiara and all. I also remember how gorgeous both your mom and Karen looked that day. The three Fried girls!
Teary eyed again, Debra. So lovely and honest and beautiful ♥️🌟♥️ thank you.
There's so much I love about this.
Especially your mother's wisdom, "People are here because they love you."
That is precious. And for some people, almost unimaginable.
As for your continuing Tiaraing.
one of the most melancholy songs ever.
And tremolo as they should be.
