#18 The Royal Wedding
I'm sitting here, glued to my TV (I've had to watch my Royal Wedding coverage in segments), and I can't help but think how much Mom would LOVE this. They're calling this wedding the first royal wedding of the social media age, which is appropriate considering the hash tags and live tweets scrolling across the bottom of the screen. With 5,000 tweets per minute, I have no doubt that Mom would be live tweeting with the rest of them!
I love watching the pomp and circumstance, and the idea of the romance and the fairy tale aspect is inescapable. Westminster Abbey is one of my favorite places in the entire world (as it was for Mom, too), and all the images of London don't hurt either.
I love the red carpet on either side of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, too.
