What every story needs, that is, what every fairy tale is simply incomplete without, is..... a handsome prince [OR, knight in shinning armor, sparkly vampire, hunky outlaw in tights.... insert applicable hero here!] Because, lets be honest, us princesses are nothing without the men we love... we get all weepy and sad without them. We loose a shoe, fall asleep for a hundred years, eat poison fruit and can't seem to find the scissors to cut the dang hair off already! The completely sappy, but honest to goodness truth is: we're just better when we're together!
And since every princess needs her dream hunk, what would my life story be without my own white knighted prince? Don't worry, I snagged him five years ago:
I'll forgive you for swooning, if you must. He IS, after all, a dream! AND a hopeless romantic...
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, Prince Rob rode into the Kingdom (aka: Paris, France) on his white horse (Delta Airlines) and with the aid of several sneaky and conniving handmaidens (my London flatmates), swept his princess (Me) off her feet with a completely romantic proposal in a beautiful park overlooking Paris at dusk!
The ecstatic princess, at awe in finding her handsome prince in the beautiful park, said yes (after getting over her initial shock, of course, at being so blindsided by a surprise... she had no idea it was coming, you see), agreeing to give her hand and heart to her handsome prince in marriage. Soon after, the handsome prince and his lovely princess bride were married on August 22, 2006:
Soon after which the entire Kingdom rejoiced (or, at least both sets of in laws), and the Prince and Princess lived happily ever after:
Happy FIFTH Anniversary, Robbie Baby! You put a dance in my step and a song in my heart! You make me laugh every day and bring me so much joy! I am--without a doubt--a much better person with you in my life. I love you more than words can say, and can't wait to share many, MANY more anniversaries to come!
