I just wanted to express my appreciation for the thoughts and good wishes you have extended to Mark and myself for our wedding.
In the year and a half that I have been a poster on this site, I feel like I have found a real family and online home here. I am so glad that I decided to become a regular poster because it opened up to me a whole new world of friends. I am privileged to have met some of you in person, and the ones I have not, I hope to meet soon. You are all wonderful people and I feel honored to know you.
Mark read your comments as well and appreciates all of them. Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness to us during this special time. Thanks especially to PapaBill, Thomas, Jeanne&Ellis, Sue, Lisa, Ray and Helen, Phyll, belgique, Moonglws4u, Carole and Johnny, Jason, Mgram, Mark and Robin, Kuki, Trip, Angela, Gaile, rollerdonna, Pam, Tom, Karen, Steve and Barb, Seahunks, Ingrid, Mark&Deb, Donna, Mike M., Harry Martin, Jennifer, Jo, LisaK, and everyone else. If I missed someone, it wasn't intentional.
I will be away from computers for two or three weeks, so when people start to wonder where I am, I haven't disappeared, I'm just away temporarily. But I will be thinking of all of you and will be back (with pictures) before very long.
Warm wishes to each and every one of you for a joyful holiday season. Cruisers are the best!
Now posting as MichelleP.
We'll all be thinking about your and Mark for the next few days.....I'm sure everything will be perfect.....just keep thinking about that honeymoon cruise and just relax and have fun. When you return, you will be a married woman, enjoy!
Michelle: You are such a sweetheart and I wish you all the happiness in the world. I have one bit of advice for you....please take the time to enjoy your wedding day. So many people are so caught up in the stress that they forget to have fun. You are only going to do this once...so enjoy it. It was wonderful meeting you in person and I know you and Mark will have a wonderful life together.
Happy Wedding Day!

My husband & I eloped & never had a real honeymoon.We will remedy that on this cruise we have been married 10 yrs & wouldn't chanf=ge a thing!!
Oh Michelle to be a fairy on the wall at your wedding!!! I would love to float around and sprinkle dust on everyone! I think love is the most incredible emotion and you are about to embark on what I hope to be the greatest journey of your life! Oh and just ignore the moose, you know how he gets Happy wedding and wonderful cruising!!!!
We, your CM family, has adored and embraced you because you are who you are.
I don't think that we need to remind you that some happy brides and grooms are so obviously suited to each other that you know that the vows that you are exchanging with each other at the Wedding is the happy fulfillment of a match that surely must have been made in heaven. Take your time with this gentle little speech and I guarantee you one thing ... I guarantee you'll find that everyone in the room is smiling in the reflected happiness of the Bride and Groom.
Jason If a grin is transmittable, and laughing is contagious, here’s hoping for an epidemic!
lets all sing! " Going to the chapel and were gonna get maaaried, going to the chapel and were gonna get maaried, gee i really love you and were gonna get maaaried, going to the chapel of love"...........
Michelle you are a special lady.........have a great time and I am looking forward to the pictures and some details of the honeymoon. 21 years ago when we married we did not have a honeymoon so i am kind of wondering what you do during this time
Have a great time

Michelle, I have an instinct for character. Given your posts...I know I said it before and I doubt anyone here will dispute it...you are a gem! May you and Mark shine in equal brilliance.
I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!

MIchelle, may you and Mark find the Bluebird of happiness as you travel together through life. Remember, you only get out of a marriage what you put into it. If I remember right you are in your late 20's. That is when Robin and I married. This past June we celebrated our 17th Wedding Anniversary. People are sometimes amazed and say so. We just look at each other and smile. I hope that you and Mark have the same good fortune.
OK it's now time for a Cruisemates group hug.
Oh, Bon Voyage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
