Today’s blog will be kind of unusual. First, because I am wearing a wedding dress. This is an unusual sight. Harper’s not really the wedding type.
The reason is, I don’t need a partner. I like my friends. I like my companions and dancing partners. But I have one true partner, and he’s my RL husband. He doesn’t play SL. (You may find this hard to believe, but dressing up is just not for him, so SL didn’t intrigue him.) However, he supports my SL and my activities.
Today is my 10th wedding anniversary. Ten years ago, I had a beautiful wedding. I had a wonderful reception. I had a gorgeous wedding dress, and we had great photos taken of my four bridesmaids and his four groomsmen and our flower girl and ring bearer and junior bridesmaid. We registered for china, we received a chip and dip set, and we settled our tiny home together. I don’t need that again, in SL or RL. Ergo, this is one of the few times you will see me in a wedding dress. I’m set, thanks.
He has given me so much: the home we live in, the security of our lives, his support and love, his reassurances and his comfort. Most importantly, he gave me our beautiful son and has provided for us a comfortable life with a loving and hard-working man in our home. Every day I try to remember gratitude for my life. Today that gratitude is for my husband.
Happy Anniversary, Dan.

P.S. The reason I have this dress is because I modeled it for a bridal show, not because I ever purchased it for SL use. I also have a Golden Flexi Wedding dress that I received as a newbie which is.. well… for a newbie (and why do I still have it really?). Remarkably, this dress looks somewhat like my real wedding dress so I wore hair that resembles how I wore mine on my wedding day. However, my flowers were not as pretty. This is how I *wish* they had looked.
