Nice day for a...

Today is my marriage's sixth birthday, and I've been with Dave for eight years. That's a fair chunk of my life -- from 27 to 35. He's seen me grow from a relative kid into a mom, and that's an enormous change. I'm not one to extoll the benefits of motherhood (what? Less SL time?), but I have to say that having a kid made me see how lovely Dave can be. He's a great dad, and seeing him play with Alba has to be one of the great joys of my marriage.

Anyway. *cough* So that you don't gag, let's move on to the clothes. I'm wearing something blue, something black, and something wedding by Rebel Hope. My own wedding was a tiny elopement in the back yard of our townhouse. The justice of the peace had hair growing out of a mole on his nose, and we had tequila shots before we said our vows (needed the liquid courage for this marriage!). I think I've had a hankering for a big fluffy wedding dress ever since. Luckily I can indulge every whim in this virtual world!

We're about to go out for a celebratory brunch. Hell, we outlasted Brad and Jenn. That's gotta be worth celebrating.
