And how having a hanky on hand at just the right moment is something that money can’t buy.
This is a beautiful recollection of a day full of meaning. Thank you Rebecca for sharing this with us. I felt like I was there with you. And the great thing about the Mastercard "priceless" campaign is that it was globally run, and even as an Indian reader I'm able to relate so well to it! 😀
Such a beautiful story and a great photo of you and Jim!
Beautiful story, beautifully written and beautifully illustrated. Lovely photo too.
I loved this Rebecca! What a perfect memory capturing what must have been a wonderful day. Beautifully written and your hand drawn images are the perfect accompaniment. Thanks for sharing this intimate moment with the rest of us! ❤️
Just gorgeous Rebecca ❤️ beautifully written
So much to love in this story - the telling of course, and then that Jim had a tear (love men who are unafraid of tears). The image of you both - a beautiful picture. And finally from one hankie carrier to another - the image of a blue floral liberty kerchief. Perfection!
As to ads - some are seriously an entertainment in their own right, others leave my husband and I scratching our heads and muttering 'Eh?' But then we're getting old and some things have to be explained... ;)
In a word full of Substacks asking me to “please consider a paid subscription,” here’s Rebecca with her beautiful memories and drawings ... just what I needed.
I hadn’t counted on weeping with my morning coffee, Rebecca. But there you are: every day a new experience. Thx for taking us back in time for that one, and gracing the story with your picture-worth-a-thousand-words. Love it when you give us the combo art-narrative platter!
What a wonderful read this morning. Thank you Rebecca for sharing your words and art. Have a wonderful weekend.
I loved this. And what a gorgeous picture of you and your Jim. ❤️
I didn't have a cold on my wedding day, but I did fail to consider needing a hanky! The tears came on for me as I headed down the aisle next to my father, and when we reached the end, I had to ask him if he had a tissue. He didn't. But what he did have was a black bandana. Both my parents always had bandanas on them at all times - for nose wiping emergencies maybe. It didn't exactly go with my wedding dress, but I was grateful to have it. So were all of my bridesmaids who passed it back and forth during the ceremony. 😂
What a beautiful story, beautifully illustrated! Happy anniversary to you & Jim!
No need for a photo of the tear, we all saw it and the whole congregation said Aaaah!!
That is without a doubt the sweetest, most romantic wedding photo I have ever seen. I could not take my eyes off of it. The love on your faces, the quiet simplicity -- that photo shows a marriage that will last. And it's so nice to see a photo of your dear husband! I loved every bit of today's post, Rebecca. You always give us a glimpse into the beauty of the real world. Thank you.
Lovely story, and I love your art!
Thank-you for inviting us into such a beautifully intimate moment and your wedding day. This was such a beautiful read and Jim isn’t how I pictured him at all... he was more quiet in my mind. He’s so full of life here - just so so gorgeous!! Love your journal - hope to get back to this type of art work one day in the next few years... ✨🙏🐢🎁
Rebecca, thank you for sharing part of your special day with us! Beautiful story, art, photo, and couple! And I love the advertisement videos.
