cleaning out...

Too much stuff. I seem to have an on going battle with clearing out my junk.There's just too much! Every time it feels like I'm getting somewhere I take a look in another drawer or cupboard and it just seems never ending. I may be slightly blowing it out of proportion here but to me it seems huge.
I've been taking bits & bobs to the charity shop, some things I've never even used, Just an accumulation of stuff over time adding to my clutter.

Since the last post I wrote on this subject I didn't get very far on my sorting but at least I have not really added to the pile.

I dream of bright & open space, white walls. Starting over, a fresh canvas to being again.

Changes are very much needed

With my birthday approaching, I'm getting into reflection mode.
Embarking onto another year of my life and I'm definitely feeling the wiser. As the saying goes "You live & you learn"

I'm definitely learning.

Much Love


The Wedding: August love in the air!

My friends wedding In August was wonderful! The weather was fantastic, the sun blazing all day long. The bride was stunning! & the bridesmaids scrubbed up pretty well too. It really was a great day.

As we entered the church I almost shed a tear. It was as we began walking down the aisle Cristina turned around looking at Stephanie & I with what looked to be complete joy and fear all rolled into one. It was a look that said to me " I'm really doing this right now!I'm getting married & every emotion possible I'm experiencing at this very minute!" That's pretty much what I imagined in my head anyway. I felt so nervous & happy for her and at that moment all of these emotions came up settling into my throat so that I really thought I was going to burst into tears. Thank God I managed to swallow it all down and hold it together.

I was asked to do a reading at the church service of 1Corinthians 13:4-8 which I was more than happy to do, although a bit apprehensive I would get tongue tied and mess it up but all went well. Yay!

I was very happy with my hair, the photos I took didn't really do it much justice, but it really was a job well done by the lovely 1950's hairstylist.

It really was a fabulous day, with great company, a beautiful venue, delicious food and oh so romantic!
Hearing the speeches especially the grooms and seeing the connection & love between the wedded couple was so lovely! Don't you just love, love?!?!?!

The month of August saw two of my friends get married, another engaged and my parents celebrating over 30 years of Marriage! I'm so excited and totally happy for them all!

Stay blessed & know that you are very much loved
