I dedicate this blog post to my adorable mother and father-in-law. That sounds so formal doesn't it? Mum and dad sounds so much warmer.
Mum was 70 and wanted a low-key time with a few close family members. It was a truly special day honouring a mum, wife and dear friend to many.
She has so many special qualities. Her kindness, warmth and love is very endearing. The little things she does makes our relationship very special. We have had special moments that I will treasure forever. I adore her and see so many of her wonderful ways in my husband.
It was a very busy day. She adores beautiful gardens and the day was perfect to visit the Watermill Gardens for lunch. It was the perfect chance to try out my new posh camera that Larry had bought for my birthday.
I was as discreet as possible as she doesn't like having her picture taken but is thrilled with the pictures of her great day (see right), especially when we had a lovely evening at the hotel and restaurant where she was married, and also when we presented her with a cake with dad's favourite picture of her on, from when they were first married (see top left).
I would love to hear about your special days that you will remember forever…
