A few weeks ago, a year of careful planning came together & created possibly the most spectacular wedding I have ever attended. Weddings: they occur daily across the globe. A promise & commitment between two people: in itself this is a very ordinary gesture- we make promises & commitments as part of our daily routine (whether we follow through with these is an entirely different matter!) yet in the presence of friends, family & loved ones, within a ceremonial procession, this ‘pact’ constitutes an extraordinary moment none the less.
I had the honor & pleasure of being a bridesmaid to the Beautiful, stunning H. After hours of trawling ‘Not on the High Street’ & ‘Etsy’ for a suitable gift to present H, in light of our friendship & as an expression of thanks for being involved in her special day, I drew a blank. There was nothing I could think of that would meet the grade (on my mummy budget anyway!) Then it occurred to me, I should play on my strengths. So I threw tradition out of the window, caution to the wind & decided to write a little something for my eldest friend, taking it back to the old skool by writing her a letter, like we did in our pen-pal days…………….
….I just hope H is still talking to me after sharing some of our childhood snaps! *retreats underneath the stairs*
