Our friends daughter was married this weekend and we were lucky enough to snag an invite to this lovely event, set at an old manor on the shores of Lake Ontario. The family were a mix of Scottish and Irish, so you can imagine how festive it was.....and how long it went on.....carrying on really for 2 days, well into the wee hours of the morning. It also meant Kilts.....lots of men in kilts. They were lucky enough to have their wedding day fall on the evening of a Blue Moon, and they danced their first dance outside with the moonlight beaming over them and the lake. Some of my favorite things included the simple wedding cake made by a friend, the peach jam wedding favors and the mason jars wrapped in lace with candles inside.
It's back to school for the children tomorrow, even though I have NO school aged children, I still feel antsy. I hated school myself, (I was teased a lot) and especially loved the days that my children were't in it. Lazy summer holidays with late nights and sleeping in, free of school related stresses and schedules. I can't even stand seeing the papers and pencils featured in the shops...SO glad those days are done. For all of you with young ones, I wish them an easy transition back to school and a successful school year.
