I’m sharing a little luck this week, in the Chinese year of the snake, courtesy of Jakesprinter. The theme for his Sunday Post, On going, also gives me the long-awaited opportunity to share some rather special photos. Nothing in my life is more “on going” than my love for my children.
Some of you will know that I’ve just returned from the wedding of my daughter Lisa to Leonardo, and that the guests were invited to wear historical costume. Lisa designed and made her own costume, in totality; the coat and waistcoat Leo is wearing (over a 3 year period); the bridesmaids dresses (with help from Jema); the waistcoats of the grooms; flowers for the church, and buttonholes and bouquets.
With Jema she made and decorated the cake. Each layer is a different flavour, progressing from lavender at the top, through Earl Grey and orange, white chocolate and almond, down to dark chocolate and cherry. I was unbelievably proud of her efforts.
One of the best aspects of the wedding, for me, was to see her together with her brother, James. There are 19 years between them in age, and many miles in distance, so they spend very little time in each other’s company. My pride and joy at seeing them together on this very special occasion was immense. Can anything be more on going than love for your children?
Thank you so much, Jake, for the opportunity to share this snippet of my daughter’s wedding. And for the new logo to brighten up my posts. I hope everyone will follow me to your Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post to admire your amazing graphics and read the other posts.
