My darling husband Howard was asked to be the best man at a friend’s wedding, which is an honor in itself, but the honor for me was to be at his side in the presence of friends and family at this special occasion of love and union.
Howard and I married in 2012, when I was 39 years old, so I spent many years before meeting Howard attending special events by myself and always yearned for a time in my life where I would have my best friend, my man, my partner by my side. That dream has now come true and I love attending events as a couple. I feel endlessly happy, fortunate and proud. We’re a team. It’s us against the world. He’s my hero, and I’m his super ☺️
So Howard’s required attire was a black suit, lime green shirt, and black tie. Easy enough, and of course my Mom found the perfect lime green flower for us both to wear as an added summer accessory.
I decided on a lovely black dress I’ve had for years with a woven chain link keyhole neckline, shark-bite hemline (which I’ve always found very flattering on me), and to bring in the lime color, I borrowed this chiffon scarf from my Mom and gently pinned it in place so that I would be comfortable and not worry about it falling off my shoulders all afternoon. My sandals are a strappy wedge pair I got at Le Chateau warehouse a few years ago, and they’re comfortable for all day wear since the incline is quite manageable. Wedges are a fantastic way to get the height & the sexiness, without the pain or the harmful impact on your knees and joints.
My loving Mom who is ALWAYS there to help adjust, complete, tuck, pin and bestow her loving touch upon everything.
Howard is a man of few words, but the expression on his face when he saw me made me feel like a beautiful lime fairy goddess, and I’ve learned to read and adsorb those expressions rather to wait for an actual compliment to be verbalized. I felt wonderful.
The wedding was perfect and the day was splendid. It brought me such joy to share this special day with the bride and groom, Neil and Kanesha.
I look forward to sharing so many more life moments like this with Howard at my side.
OMG – did I forget to talk about the FOOD?
C’mon now, let’s appreciate how beautifully presented this salad and fruit platter are! I know your taste buds are watering right now – sorry! The delicious dinner in true Jamaican style consisted of curry goat, fried chicken and jerk chicken, with rice and peas. For recipes on how you can make these yourself, click here.
