Yea!!!!! These photos make me smile. My sister and her beautiful girlfriend are now engaged, and I cannot wait until the day they, too, have “legal” wedding smiles. I will ask them to find their dresses and pretend, so I can capture that liberated smile. They may make the move to Illinois eventually if Texas keeps being all sloooooow. I had to wait a couple months before the Beanie Babies craze hit Texas. My Illinois cousin had given me one, but I wanted to have 60 more! I wanted to have a bear in every color and pattern imaginable, so I could pretend to have collectors items, but really just have ugly bears filled with little balls. But I turned into a blueberry before I could create my Beanie Baby village.
