Holiday Starts!

The time has arrived for me to say goodbye for now.
May you all have a wonderful Christmas filled with love and laughter.
If you are travelling somewhere please do so safely, the roads are horrible this time of the year and I want to hear from every single one of you next year. All limbs in tact please! :)

Happy New Year! Make sure if you celebrate you don't celebrate too hard, at least last till the countdown. {wink}

Till next year! Don't miss me too much! ;)
Lots love

Weddings and a weekend filled with {LoVe}...

It's Wednesday, the last one before I go on holiday and I am quite frankly counting down the minutes and seconds! Friday at 1pm I am officially on Holiday!!!
This year just rocketed past us.
And we ended the year filled with celebrations. My sisters wedding and last weekend my bestie got married!
Cedric and I drove down to Mossel Bay for the wedding that was held at Idille Wedding Venue in George. Beautiful venue. The weather played along and gave the day a misty look filled with rain drizzling down. The rain stopped as the people arrived and left us in a humid state, but still so pretty. The mist hanging in the trees in the woods. As they said their "I do's" the clouds opened up and the sun welcomed the newlywed couple in the world of married life.

Beautiful wedding, gorgeous bride, perfect couple! Thank you Aimee and Sev for making us part of your special day! Love you!

Then we had to of course keep busy for the rest of the weekend. We spent the Sunday driving around and stopped for a yummy lunch at Eight Bells. Another breathtaking place.

 My daddy and his other half
The amazing cheesecake the make! And not shy with portions.
 They have horses there!

And then the time everyone hates arrived, the day you have to say farewell! But we had to squeeze in a last lunch before heading to the airport! So we stopped at Dutton's Cove in Herolds Bay. Exceptional view with great food and perfect ambiance!

 The view

Before I say goodbye, look at this beautiful church we drove past on our way to Mossel Bay. This church is in Graaff - Reinet.

Have a happy Wednesday Journeyers! I will be off line till next year. Have a Merry Christmas all and a Happy New year. If you are travelling anywhere do it safely. Till next year!
Much love

My Baby Sister is MARRIED! {heart}

Good Morning!!!
It is Halfway through the week! And I have 5 WORK days left before it's HOLIDAY!!!! Can I get a WOOP WOOP!!!???

As all of you know we had a very exciting past weekend. My little only sister got married. Yes she is younger than I am, but who cares, she found her perfect partner. So have I but we are just not ready to take that step yet. All good things come to those who wait they say!
Friday I stayed with the Bride to be, and she was extremely relaxed. {weird} I would have probably been freaking out by that time. We went to bed got a really good nights rest and then the BIG day arrived. The one we have been waiting months for.

The morning was a bit big rush! Everyone trying to get all their things ready in time. And yet again my sister was as calm as a cat. Once again I would have been running around like a headless chicken at this stage. We all got ready for the big day, got into the car and on our way to Church. As we stopped in front of the Church the other Bridesmaid whispered to me "I'm nervous all of a sudden", unfortunately my sister has radar ears and heard that. And then she freaked with a "don't be nervous! now I am nervous!" haha and all we could do was laugh. Beautiful Bride, Beautiful ceremony, beautiful reception. Too many speeches but who cares. It was perfect! My sister looked perfect.

So without further ado....
Cedric and I waiting for the Newlyweds to arrive
 And they arrive...
