Goin' to the Chapel . . .

. . . and we're gonna get maaaaarried . . . .  That's me, singing.  I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now.  Sage and I are getting married!!!! I am over the moon.  My new name will be Sophie Colgan DuBois.  I’m so excited, I can hardly wait.  I can’t believe this is really happening.  I’m gonna be Sadie, Sadie, Married Lady! 

Of course, Sage and I have been living together for a while, that’s no surprise to anyone, and I guess everyone expects that we’ll be getting married soon.  And they’re right!  We are.  Next spring in May, 2015.  It seems like a long way off because we’re in the middle of autumn but I know the big day will come soon and I want to have everything organized, down to the last little detail.

My best friend, Lucky Jamieson, is sewing my wedding gown.  It’s a good thing too because if she left it up to me, I’d probably wear some old dress I already own.  I’m a ski instructor at the Snowflake Resort and all my clothes are ski gear, jeans and T-shirts.  I don’t own much else, but Lucky insisted that she wants me to look beautiful and elegant on the BIG DAY. 

She knows me pretty well.  She knows I couldn’t stand to wear anything too frou-frou.  It has to be simple.  So Lucky’s told me she creating a simple, elegant flowing ivory sheath with a headdress of pearls and a veil. 



Sage and I plan to hold the ceremony in Lucky’s grandfather’s lovely garden with a justice of the peace and a very small group of only the people who are closest to us.  I just hope  Pastor Wilson isn’t upset that we’re not going to have him officiate at the Congregational Church.  I want to keep everything small and I want my wedding day to be peaceful and full of romance.  Sage agrees.  He plans to do all the work for a buffet and Lucky says she’s hiring a harpist to create just the right atmosphere. 

I’m really determined that our wedding day doesn’t get any more complicated or demanding.  And I really hope everybody in Snowflake doesn’t expect to be invited. 

Anyway, here's a sneak preview.  Scroll down a little bit more and you can see the cover of Ladle to the Grave, the fourth book in the Soup Lover’s Mystery series, which is coming to life on March 3, 2015.

Our future wedding is featured on the cover!

I can’t wait!  But I worry a lot because lots of people have told me about their wedding disasters.  Have you ever experienced anything like that???


Please keep your fingers crossed for me because I don’t want anything to go wrong next May!

  1. Weddings must be in the air or something--two of my characters are tying the knot next year.

    I did a double-take when I saw the picture of the church here. If I'm not mistaken, it's one in the town where I live, and it's about three blocks from my house!

    1. Hi Sheila ~ Glad you could stop by today ~ and yes, you guessed it! I took this picture a few years ago, but since then I heard there was a fire at the church. Is it still intact? (I hope so.)

    2. Oh yes. I was at the fire (and took pictures!), which took place one Memorial Day weekend, and I watched the whole rebuilding process, since I go by it a lot. For a while the steeple was parked on the front lawn. But everything's back in place now.

    3. So glad to hear that! I thought it was such a perfect example of a white-steepled New England church. Can't remember what year it was built though. 17- something as I recall. 1749?

  2. Sophie, I hope nothing happens to mar your special day. Gord and I and our friends in Threadville had some hair-raising days leading up to our wedding...

    1. I'll bet you did! Well . . . I can't give too much away, but Sophie will have her ups and downs, if not a roller coaster ride, before the wedding.

    1. Hi Patricia ~ Uh oh, you guessed it! But hopefully no complications AT the wedding! Sophie deserves a wonderful day, don't you think?

  4. No wedding ever goes off without a hitch. None is ever perfect.
    Those are the things that make the day memorable and extra special.
    One of a kind.
