Dear diary,
I’ve been thinking about my new home in Greece
But I haven’t much time for thinking for I have
Met Grand’Mere she will Giving me princess Lessons as well as taking me to Greece this summer this is a lot for a fifteen year old so-called princess to take in

Dear diary,
Happy New Year
Grand’Mere had a New Years Eve feast and because the emperor and empress of Japa Were in town they of course were invited this was the first formal occasion I obviously though heels because it was formal but grandmere insisted that I wear flats because she said :”it is rude to be taller then an emperor.”
I have the best news it turns out I will not have to bring my hideous school uniform To Greece but wear my after school clothes for the flight
And then get custom made clothes made by Vera Wang herself!
She also mentioned my own private suite in the Palace in Athens she said as the crown princess of Greece I can only have the best from 100% Tibetan silks sheets to a four poster canopy made of Indian silk chiffon.

an exited Catharina vardalos

dear mom, 12\26\011
i just got of the plane & i can't believe that i am in greece! and the press is following me everywhere! a limo with two little greek flags on it picked up at airport with two police cars around the limo and there autograph hunters and reporters, all around me. but thanks to the police men and straight after that we met up with vera wang and Sadie spika ( the designer all the awesome singers and movie stars go to go to for clothes)
grand'mere explained that sandie was here to design my wedding gown and jewelry vera wang for everything else i asked sandie if you make it like one taylor swift wore in love story's music video but in silver and gray blue for to replace gold and pure white instead off white and by the way could you come? love,
your daughter,
cathrina vardolos

12:00-1:00 lunch with greek olive growing society
1-3 visit mainland the greek public schools
3-3:30 public outing with andrew but of course grandmere insisted that for all public outings i must have a body-guard
3:30-4:30 parade in athens
4:30-5:30 call mom| write in diary

This is good but it seems a lot like the princess diary books. It also seems to go very fast for a complicated storyline. Its really good keep writing!
