Congrats to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

As I mentioned last week, JAG weekend coincided with the weekend of the Royal Wedding. Our hostess DVRd the wedding and we watched it later than the 6AM CST start time once everyone arrived.

It was a lovely wedding, but what really got me the most was the pure joy and delight on the faces of the bride and groom. The smiles and the greetings as they saw each other for the first time and were close enough to one another. The bit of conversations as they waited for the flower girls and page boys to complete their duties. The Duke thanking his father for escorting his bride partway down the knave. The smiles and the joy. Oh, I said that already, but goodness, they were both beaming, it warranted a repeat.

That's why I love reading romance and why I enjoy writing it--the hope that you can capture those feelings between two people. (Not that I'm particularly adept, but hope springs eternal.)

Just a few screen- capped moments...

The first real look.

Meghan says hi.

And, of course, the kiss.
