Enjoy the moment.

Don’t you just love the buzz that’s in the air at the moment.  Not only are the bumblebees evident but spring is well underway.

It is indeed a lifetime for some.  While the older folks, who have…

A love worth waiting for.

Over the next few months my Love Stories are going to focus on couples who have found love a little later in life.  Love a second time around is no less passionate, romantic or exciting but it is different. As we mature we become more self assured, we know what our goals are and where…

From faux pas to downright disasters…

  After last months beautiful wedding memories, I thought this month it might be fun to remember some of the less than perfect moments that surround a wedding.  Things that at the time may have been seemingly ‘end of the world’ disasters are now just a memory and a wry smile. A good starter for…

My husband and I are about to celebrate our Coral Anniversary; thirty-five years of marriage. We sometimes reflect that had we been married today, with so many different possibilities for couples to express their personalities…
