We leave for Wales in just nine days and things have begun to get busy around here.
I do not know if we will have wifi while we are away for our Vow Renewal.
So I have been preparing posts and working on a surprise for my readers.
Which I will announce soon.
I love to plan to things.
I was planning my own 30th birthday party last year.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the party fell through
and I was just happy to make it back to England in time
to blow out my candle with my husband.
As I started planning our 10th Anniversary
which quickly became a Vow Renewal celebration
I went on Pinterest to plan out in full force.
Not sure if you have noticed
but I have twelve boards
designated to my ‘I Do Again‘ theme.
Even many of my pins from my 30th Birthday ideas
bled into my vision for a perfect Vow Renewal.
But now that my anniversary is just fifteen days away
I have been avoiding pinterest.
Do not get me wrong I love that site.
But there are just all these things I would have loved to
that when all is said in done is just not practical at this time
I basically am looking around at what is in our house
to make do with for the ceremony.
Yes I still love planning.
Yes I would still love to host amazing stylized parties.
I’m much inspired by Tori Spelling.
She influenced how I did my son’s comic book party.
I would love to host a few parties a year
for friends that love to come to dinner parties
that had all these perfect details.
And play the perfect host.
It has made me refocus.
in regards to our vow renewal.
I am happy to just have my family here.
I am under the assumption my husband’s father is still coming.
But his mother has still decided to not come.
I know we cannot force her to be here.
It is still our time of celebration.
It just makes me realize how much I love my family.
And the way they love and accept Ryan unconditionally.
My mum and my sister are flying here to be with us.
My dad will be watching down from heaven.
Our friends from Uni are coming with their kids.
That is what is has become all about…the people.
The memories we will make.
The photographs that will capture the good times.
We are pretty excited to be counting down the days.
My sons wake me up to tell me how many days
until their Nonna gets here.
They bug me to do a google hangout with her
it seems like every other day.
So if I seem a bit busy or slow to answer
on the social media front
it is because we are busy in preparation.
I just needed a day to reflect on everything in my head.
Thank you for listening to me today.
Stay tuned for the special surprise.
