Lavender is for bridesmaids, violet is for vamps

Dear Allie,

I am so happy for you, I can barely contain myself. I think you and Adam are a wonderful fit and it doesn’t surprise me in the least that he finally got down on one knee and proposed to you. August 31 can’t come soon enough!

So how are the wedding plans going? Is there anything I can help you with? I think a trip to NYC to pick out our bridesmaid dresses sounds like a fabulous idea. Your lavender sash sets the tone and I’m certain all of your bridesmaids will look lovely in lavender.

The sash on Allie's wedding dress will be a lovely shade of lavender.
But my maid of honor dress must be a deeper shade of violet.

Of course, as your maid of honor and true to my vaping vampiness, I agree that the color of my dress must be a deeper shade of violet!

I just got home from the Maldives where I had a very romantic time with Perrin. But Mon Dieu! My narrow escape from that bad-ass barracuda was so frightening. Even a Vaping Vamp needs a hero now and then!

Viktor picked me up at the airport (I lent him my 1968 Volvo while I was gone), and he prepared a fabulous meal for me, just as he had promised to do for Valentine’s Day. We started out with steamed artichokes with lemon-tarragon sauce, then herb-rubbed beef tenderloin and finally, dark chocolate fondue for two.

I have a feeling that he is hoping there's a path to my heart through my palate, and he may be right! Next week, he is planning to take me out to his favorite Twin Cities Russian restaurant, Moscow on the Hill.

Oh Allie, I’m already in a quandary about whom to invite as my guest to your wedding!

Luv & Hugs,

VV
