It’s Friday the 13th. Ooooohhhh! I was so gutted to miss the hot weather in London this past weekend. Just my luck that I’d be out of town and up North where a sea fret was making it feel more like winter.
>>> This was our very last trip up to Yorkshire before our wedding later this summer. We’ve exchanged many, many emails with most of our wedding vendors, but this was the first time we’ve met everyone in person. We even managed to fit in back-to-back meetings and cross off everyone on our list. We are so lucky that everyone we are working with is so kind and excited to help us.
>>> The trees aren’t bare anymore and spring seems to finally be here. It’s so nice to look out the window at work and not see branches.
>>> It was so nice to be by the sea. We had one really sunny afternoon and managed to have a walk along the beach with ice creams. It was an absolute delight.
>>> Half the nieces and nephews live up North and it was wonderful to get to see those crazy kids this past weekend. And I was ecstatic that the girls liked their flower girl dresses. There was a chance it could have gone very wrong so I had been keeping my fingers crossed!
>>>Mother’s Day was this past weekend, and though we were far apart, hopefully my mom knows how loved she is!
>>>I got to go on a surprise tour of Lord’s last night. I was asked to bring a plus one and if I had picked anyone other than Sam, he would have killed me. He’s cricket mad!
>>> I now regard the work week as the interminable wait between Game of Thrones episodes. My mom and I have both been espousing the R + L = J theory for years. (Read the books before the show started, humble brag humble brag). I must see inside the Tower of Joy now.
>>> I wore dresses with no tights this week and that deserves triple exclamation marks.
>>> Marks & Spencer Pistachio and Almond cookies are pure glory.
>>> We bought multiple bottles of bubbles to test taste at different price points for the big day. That’s the kind of planning that I can truly relish!
I have to work all weekend, but I’m hoping to catch some sun on either side.
