National Stationery Week and Personalised Stationery

With National Stationery Week at the end of April, you’ve a couple of pay days to save up your pennies to go on a stationery spending spree, not to mention the perfect chance to celebrate the written word and all things stationery. Even Victoria Beckham was spotted stationery shopping. She headed to the Ryman shop in Kensington recently to stock up on goodies for her son, Romeo.

Beautiful Centerpiece Ideas You Can Do Yourself

I recall when I got married it was a simple wedding, no real decor or any sort of theme. A simple backyard wedding with close family and friends in attendance. The daughter was the flower girl and ring bearer because Aj was far too young to be the ring bearer. My father walked me down the “aisle” which was just the backyard grass … nothing special. It was simple and fine by me, however, some people spend years planning those perfect weddings. For those who plan their wedding ceremony in advance and really put thought into having a theme of […]

Memories of a Wedding

I occasionally think back to the day I got married, it was a lovely occasion with a small handful of family and friends. Turns out J and I didn’t have many friends and I had more family than he, but it was a fun filled event. A close friend of J’s was put in charge of dealing with our music, although no one really heard it and I can’t recall what song we decided to play when the walk from home down the grass to the “alter” in the backyard was but the moment was fun. I remember having a […]

Wedding Poem Great Time To Share This

This is an older post being featured from my Archives as part of my celebration of ONE YEAR OF BLOGGING … May 19, 2007 was the date I married my husband at a small ceremony in our back yard right here where we still live.

My husband and I had perma-grin all day and night long. My mother in law […]
