About the whole walking down the aisle thing...

When I got married, I walked down the aisle alone. I was 40 when I got married, independent, and so on, and certainly never felt the need for someone to give me away! So I didn't ask my uncle (the only "father figure" in my life) or anyone to do that.

I looked at my walk down the aisle as a walk toward a new life. There was nothing I was giving away and no nest to leave. It literally felt like I was crossing a border into new land and I was thinking how I was taking steps toward a new adventure. That is, when I wasn't worrying about tripping on my dress!
