I don't really love to buy gossip magazines because most celebrities I've liked in the past have turned out to disappoint me:
All Bachelor Couples
Heidi and Seal
Jon and Kate...
This list could be a mile long. So I usually peruse the headlines while checking out at the checkout stand and call it a day (or sometimes I'll read when I get my hair done, but you know, that's not often). Who really has time to read magazines anyway?
The other day was an exception though. As I was checking out at the grocery store, I looked up to see a rather fetching bride on the cover of People Magazine.
It was Elizabeth Smart.
I knew that I needed more details and that my kids wouldn't hold up while I stood there and read, so I threw the magazine on the conveyor belt, adding $4 to my bill, and knowing that I had something to distract me that afternoon.
A great $4 spent.
In my opinion, if Elizabeth Smart chose to sit in a corner and cry the rest of her days away, she would be totally and completely justified. But miraculously, she doesn't.
I think she is one cool person, and I am adding my congratulations to the happy couple (as if they knew me or wanted the attention).
And the wedding? Beautiful. (I may have shed a tear or two reading about it...my husband is super embarrassed right now.)
