Today is my husband’s and my 23rd wedding anniversary, so I thought you might enjoy a few pictures from one of my favorite days ever. (Although I’ll apologize for their quality – I was too lazy to pull them out of the album and scan them, so I just took pictures with my phone.)
The Sunday Edition header is one of my favorites. I have a thing for wedding hand photos and my own is no exception. Of course, it occurred to me only when I was looking through the proofs several weeks after our wedding that maybe I should have gotten a manicure. But honestly? Even today manicure isn’t really a word in my vocabulary. Short, no-nonsense piano nails are all I ever have.
Here’s our entire wedding party. Yes, it’s enormous. Tim was the first of the kids his age on his side of the family to get married, which meant that we tried really REALLY hard to include everyone. (Note to future brides: don’t do this, you will still fail.) Of the six little girls up front, “only” four of them are flower girls – the other two passed out programs as people were seated.
Then we have my dad and me over on the right. I love that photo. And my dress (which I paid a whopping $400 for because I got it during the end of season clearance. Woo!)

The Back-to-School Giveaway is Coming Soon!
If you’ve been hanging around here at InspyRomance for long, you probably know about (and hopefully look forward to!) our two big giveaways each year. The second of those for 2018, our Back-to-School giveaway, will kick off mid-August. Because we know we have several international commenters and we like to share the wealth of paperbacks as much as we can, there will again be a special paperback prize package just for international readers. This year, however, rather than asking you to tell us in a comment (and then hoping we see it and update our spreadsheet), we’ve created this little form. If you’re an international reader (meaning you don’t live in the United States, just to be 100% clear on that definition from our perspective ;) ), please take two minutes and fill out this form. That way we know who to enter in our international giveaway!
