I happened upon this image and when I read the photographer's description, I immediately knew that I just had to share:

"With so many of my friends getting engaged, I've had to fight back nausea at the thought of getting hitched within the next few years. Instead, I've chosen to do a little backwards mapping. My hope is that this lovely round number will be painted on my birthday cake in chocolate mouse buttercream curcli-Q's before I seriously entertain the thought of sauntering down the aisle with a member of the male species. Plus, the green tile is vaguely 70's era and looks like the bottom of a retirement community swimming pool. Maybe I'll shoot for a geriatric wedding."

This image was uploaded in 2005, so one wonders where Barefoot Hermes stands on this issue now? I never could have imagined myself married in my 20's either. Now that I'm firmly ensconced in my 30's, I suppose I've softened a bit. Now I love the idea of being married.

I remember when I was a sassy teen who thought I was soooo sophisticated. I boasted that I was not going to get married until I was at least 24. Ancient!

I also said I was going to wear embroidered bell bottoms and have the Rolling Stones play.

Well, I am waaaaay past 24 and I still cannot picture a wedding for me. Not that I wouldn't love a special someone, but I think a long aisle and a white dress are not in the cards.

I'd rather live vicariously through you. Any more plans made?

You are one very WISE woman! I have a feeling that lawyers would not be doing as well if more girls/women thought like you. :)

You are going to have a beautiful wedding.
