Introducing myself as "the older bride"

I would like to upload a photo but as yet haven't figured out how. Lol. I'm not tech-illiterate but... so I promise I will post a pic/avatar soon. I'm 61, blonde w/ short straight hair, & right now I weigh 15 lbs more than I want. (Too much going out to dinner with FH!!) Usually I wear size 6 clothes. I 'm on a low-carb diet because I'll need a dress fitting in Jan. (wedding is June 28, '14). I'm scared to death. Ha. I've been told in the past I resembled Princess Diana. Prob the nose & the hair. ( Not the money!!!) But I'm just a lil girl born & raised in Maine, now in the Boston area, after 40 years in 6 other states. Met my wonderful FH online, and our 1st date was only Jan 2, 2013! Hey, when you know you know! He's 20 years younger than I and has always loved older women. I had honestly about resigned myself to having to be with a man my age, but after many dates with men "my age" I was so depressed!! Ugh! I knew I had more energy than that ... so when my "Baby" FH came along ... wow. I said " THIS is what i need!!" We laugh out loud every single day at the absurdity & joy of life.... and each other! We're taking ballroom dancing lessons & are working up a hot routine to our song STAY, by Rihanna. It'll be our First Dance. I'm so happy, but as I've learned over the years, my happiness comes from within myself, not totally because of him. He feels the same. We must always keep our identity & not lose our "self" in a partner, no matter how wonderful that person is! Having been a widow, I know that Life goes on, and it will ALWAYS get better. It's all in your attitude. So, my beautiful fellow brides, savor each moment now and try not to wish Time away. It will all turn out the way it's supposed to... Love & hugs & be relaxed & happy in the planning!!

    Welcome to WW!

    When you upload a pic it has to be from the "full site" not the app or mobile site. Then, when you post, under where you type there will be a button for it. Good luck.

    P.s. there's no such thing as an "older" bride =-)
