Reading: Look Again - Lisa Scottoline
Listening to - The quail as they keep tabs on their chicks and hunt forage for food in my husband's vegetable garden.
listening to - my husband growling at the quail but not chasing them away.
It must be the time of the year for weddings.
We have just been to a family one in Golden Bay at the top of NZ's South Island. A beautiful setting for a beautiful day. Everyone was greatly moved by the couple's vows that they wrote. Both the bride and groom expressed their love for each other very elequently. They certainly reminded us all what romance is all about. Family weddings also have the added bonus of being able to catch up with all those family members I only see occasionally. The cheeky ones who kept asking me if I was getting inspiration for my next book.
And then next weekend we are off to a wedding celebration for a couple who were married in Italy last month - a long way from home for the groom but in the heart of the bride's family.
My close friends, whose son got married, flew to Italy and froze in the northern winter but had a wonderful time over there. Now back in our summer temperatures they are sharing the excitement of this marriage.
Have any of you been to weddings so far this year?
