Holiday Style Source

A really wonderful thing happened yesterday. I received a package in the mail. Now, that in and of itself is not unusual (I am a dedicated online shopper after all and on first name basis with both the FedEx and UPS drivers), but this was a box from my mom, and the message attached said, "A Royal Wedding Tradition Continues". Inside the box was this gorgeous ring. (Actually, one very similar.) Yes! A replica of the ring that Prince Charles gave Princess Diana on their engagement, and the same one Prince William gave Kate Middleton earlier this week upon the announcement of their engagement!

I had forgotten all about this ring — 30 years ago when the entire world was caught up in the frenzy that surrounded the engagement and Royal Wedding Hoopla of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, my mother found the ring in an antique store in the Berkshires. She and my dad were on a well deserved weekend getaway when they wandered into this quaint little shop and my mother saw the ring in a display case. She immediately fell in love with it and my dad, the ever hopeful romantic, bought it for her as a memento of their first trip alone together since their honeymoon eight years earlier. When they returned home bearing gifts for me and my little sister I had no interest whatsoever in my hand carved wooden box — I only had eyes for that gorgeous ring. And then, when my mom showed me that it was just like the future Princess's engagement ring, that was that. I was officially a Royal Wedding Groupie. That spring and summer my mom and I followed the preparations for the Royal Wedding with something bordering on obsession. We devoured anything and everything Windsor. We bonded over Barbara Walters' interview with the Prince and future Princess. We bought up copies of People and Time magazine and I would cut out photos of Diana and tape them to the mirror on my bedroom door. I even asked my mom if I could get my hair cut like Diana's (mom convinced me that my long blond curls were more age appropriate for a five year old.) I spent hours designing the perfect wedding gown for a princess, and my mom let my wear her ring, with the promise that some day it would be mine.

Well, my very thoughtful and considerate mother felt that with a new Royal Wedding on the horizon, it was the perfect time to pass the baton/ring to me and my little girl. Such great memories with my mom, and such wonderful memories to create with my little girl…So we are in full Wedding Watch mode at our house! My little girl is already playing Wedding Party with her Polly Pockets, and I was even lucky enough to snap up this gorgeous little number, somewhat reminiscent of Kate Middleton's engagement dress (what a gorgeous shade of blue!) Obsess much? Never!

Speaking of obsessions, check out just a few of our obsessions for the holidays:
