The little birds...

If you watch little birds you will see they are busy and happy! Using whatever they can find they create the most gorgeous little nest.
I would be the little bird with some glittery thread in her nest!
We can be like this. Happily working away with the things that are available to us to create a beautiful and happy home.
All the while with a little song in our heart.

Yesterday I had the fun of looking at the professional wedding photos. We have been waiting for them...

They are really wonderful. They captured so many precious moments. How I will choose my enlargements, don't ask me!

I found it a very emotional day. More than I expected originally that is for sure. I think ceremony is a very important part of life. Without the wedding we never would have had these moments that I will treasure forever. Such a big day and so beautiful. I think I counted every blessing that day and since...

A massively emotional thing for me was Lucy asked her Grand Father to walk her down the aisle. These are the moments the chickens come home to roost. Dad was the major man in Lucy's life growing up, he looked after us and protected us and helped us in every way when I found myself a single Mum before Lucy was even born. What I would have done without my parents I don't know.

On top of that Dad nearly died over 15 years ago with a massive heart attack and has run on 50 percent of his heart since then. That makes him sound sick but he works full time and so does Mum. So him just being here to see this was enough to make my mascara run, just thinking of it...

These little girls were just angels all day and they never tired! They danced around like fairies throwing rose petals and being gorgeous all day!

This is my brother with Lucy on the dance floor. I really love this photo!

I could go on! But I'm sure you get the idea! I want to make a lovely album and include copies of the speeches and things like place cards, invitations and pressed flowers (which I have pressing in books)  And I want to frame a series of photo enlargements. I don't have artworks on my walls. Mainly I like clear space. But to me these are better than art and they will make me happy every time I see them. 

What a day. I have never seen my Father smile so much as that day. I'm sure his face ached from smiling by the end! The support and love of families, what is more important than that? 


  1. Beautiful! They really do capture such precious moments. I was also looking at wedding photos yesterday, even though my DD has been married 2 years now! Just looking at the pictures evoke such depths of emotion, and they are wonderful reminders of beautiful events in our lives. xo

    1. Kaye Im sure I will be the same in two years time, looking back on this time. Ahhhh. xxxx

  2. Lovely. Something to treasure.
    When I got married we had the most useless photographer. Pointless and ghastly photos. No family members had been able to attend. Everyone was bitterly disappointed that there was nothing nice to share. But the important thing for us was that we actually were married and lived happily ever after.
    I wish that your daughter and her husband also live happily ever after.

    1. Thank you Louise! Im glad you had a very happy ending that is the most important thing.xx

  3. MY! my! MY! my! MY! my! Ooooooooooooooo my!
