I know I have been absent from The Journey for a bit......... but I have had a really good reason!  an exciting reason !!  a secret that is no longer a secret!!

After a few years of  re-negotiating and talking and (most importantly) loving............

On Saturday Sept 7th at 5:00 p.m. W and i had a re-collaring ceremony in front of 20 new and old friends.

I spent last week (well truthfully longer than that) getting ready for this big day.  We held the ceremony here at the house and had our guests (all 20 of them) stay for dinner.  I cooked and cleaned and got butterflies - and cooked some more.  

But I am pleased to say that the ceremony and dinner went off better than I had hoped, and I am now (once again) collared to Sir.

Here are just a few pictures of the event............... you will notice that keeping with my obsession with all things oriental - I wore a kimono. 

 here i am in the bedroom getting dressed with a close friend's help 

the event was planned to be held in the new oriental garden
However Mother Nature didn't cooperate 
and the rain moved us inside to the living room 

 the actual collaring

W tied rope around my obi to symbolize the bond between us 

 And then it was "let them eat cake" time......... 

As well as chicken pastries, ribs, steak kabobs salads and  sweets galore  

And now the next chapter in our life together begins.......... together, loving, and happy!

I'm so happy for you!!!! You look wonderful, and your Sir fairly glows. You two look so happy.

Oliver Wendell Holmes said that "love is the master key that unlocks the gates of happiness", in this case it is the key that locks the collar.

You look gorgeous, W looks very handsome, the kimono is beautiful and the cake, wow! Love it. You must be walking on air. :)


Congratulations. Not that I am going to try to understand collaring but I am still happy for you two.
