About my "wedding" picture

You can read more about my wedding cake HERE, but I'll give you some random facts about the picture in the previous entry:

1. That picture was not taken on our wedding day, so I doubt we were scared, no matter how we look in that shot.

2. Although I didn't know it, I was just a wee bit pregnant in the picture.

3. If the picture were a bit clearer and you could get a closeup of my face, you'd see the whites of my eyes were yellow. I didn't know it at the time, but I had a very mild case of hepatitis A. I would have never known this except my mom mentioned that day how yellow I looked. A few weeks later my husband came down with a violent case of Hepatitis A, and with the doctor's quizzing, we traced it back to me.

Wow, hepatitis. You must have been tired?

My mother died of viral hepatitis when I was six years old. You can imagine how that changed my life. She was a registered nurse. No one knows for sure how she contracted it.

I still don't know the difference between the A, B and other versions.

I take it the treatment for the hepatitis was successful and it posed no complications with the pregnancy? I liked the picture of your two with the cake. It is interesting to learn how couples first meet. Things were so different then as far as the dating scene goes.

Ms. Donna, that cake story is beautiful. And your mother was a smartie, to bake a huge cake but only have several edible layers.

Interesting about the Hepatitis A. It's more common that many people are aware (and fortunately, does not tend to be chronic.)

p.s. Hey, love the new blog header.

Love all the old pictures. I had the cat eye glasses too and thought they were really glamorous! ha! Yes, you sure do have good looking kids, that is such a nice photo! I'll have to do a post on how I met hubby one of these days.

That's too funny! I'm surprised she didn't invite a bunch of folks over to enjoy the cake (throw you a surprise reception, in other words.) My mother wouldn't have made me a cake if I eloped. She would have choked me instead. LOL
