All about second chances...

Playing along with Cheryl.
So what makes my Monday? Well, I guess the fact that we are all alive and well certianly does. We had a little scare with Little man L yesterday, but enough about that. Then this morning my laptop's power supply exploded in my hand. I nearly wet (really!) myself but I am fine. Using old spare power supply at present.

Nope, what really makes my Monday is that two very sweet and very in love people got married on Saturday at the beautiful Diamond Hill. This was all about second chances too - second chance to love and be happy. I loved the one bit that the minister said in her service- God took a rib out of Adam - under his heart, which is a safe place for a woman to be. Not in his foot, to trample on his wife and not in his head so that she can sit on top of it. So, a few pictures to share - who does not love to look at wedding pics? (of course I am keeping the best one for 365)
The shoes thing - the groom, groomsmen and ring bearer all wore sneakers.
Ahww - cute - the flower girl and ring bearer.
The blessing.
The bridal bouquet was just stunning. All the flowers and table decorations by the groom's dad. The cute table gifts were salt an pepper pots for each couple.
I sucumed to a little Big Blue dress ( of which you can see very little here)
For dancing, the bride exchanged her beautiful shoes for silver sneakers - if you work for Superga, I guess it's cool!


  1. I am so jealous of your beautiful photos!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, they are STUNNING!

    And I love unconventional weddings - LOVE the sneakers :)
