Tagged! Drat!

*sighs deeply and glares over at her beloved* My dearest Edward decided to tag me in this "Name your memoirs" thing. I don't think he realizes how much I dislike being tagged and that my creativity does not extend to this sort of brain game. However, rest assured, he will be hearing about it for quite some time in the future. ;-)

So...what to call my memoirs....I considered a few possibilites, but seeing as it's a 6 word maximum, that curtails my natural wordiness. So, below are a few of the possibilities:

1. Lady's Companion to Duchess of Argylle
- this doesn't really work as I started my journal LONG after my days at Le Jardin, but I'm a bit pressed for ideas.

2. The Neglected Journal of Christine Pearse
- very apt, I think

4. Too Busy to Write Much Down
- again very apt....I'm usually too busy doing to spend much time writing about it.

And my personal favorite:

5. Pass the Anti-Drama Spray Please!!!!!

Anyhow...the rules and my tags:

1. write the title to your own memoir using six words.
2. post it on your blog.
3. link to the person that tagged you.
4. tag five more blogs.

I don't know how to link, so just go and read my beloved Edward's journal....I'm sure you can find your way

And now for the list of Victims....I mean tagged people:

1. TotalLunar Eclipse
2. Fuzzball Ortega
3. ZenMondo Wormser
4. Puck Goodliffe
5. Abigail Raymaker

There!!! Done!!!! Good luck to all of you! :-)

Let Me Call You Sweetheart...

It is hard to believe that it has been one full year since Edward and I were handfasted above Loch Avie. What a year it has been!
In one year's time, Edward learned that he was the Earl of Primbroke, and more recently the Duke of Argylle. We have moved from our lovely home, Davaar, in Caledon Cay to the Highlands to Winterfell Harbourside and finally to Caledon Argylle (which we are still working on settling in drop by though, or enjoy the space to boat or picnic lunch on the beach).
We also managed to survive the first massive SLRFL, the Egg War, the Harvest Festival, the Winter Season and many, many, many other events which keep our social calendars rather full (so please don't ask why I've not written anything in mine as of to my typist). We've explored new lands, shared many ideas, worked together on projects (yes, Eugenia, I've not forgotten about your farmhouse! :-D) and otherwise enjoyed spending time in each other's company. My respect and admiration for Edward has deepend in this past year.
Traditionally, the handfasting ceremony is for a year and a day. Due to RL obligations, we will not be able to hold a renewal ceremony that day, but I assure you all that we are remaining together and we will have a party as soon as RL simmers down a bit. Besides, we caused enough offense last year having our ceremony the day we did, with certain parties ;-) I'm certain Argylle will be the venue of choice and those wanting to come and celebrate with us will be able to explore our home at their leisure too. Edward has been very busy with certain projects and I look forward to seeing him complete them when he has more time.
I would like to thank Edward for sharing this past year with me as his wife. It has been a wonderful year and I'm looking forward to the times ahead with me at his side. Happy Anniversary my love!
