Today is a happy day; a time to look back at the years gone by and a wonderful weekend to look forward to!
10 years ago today, on a cold, crisp November day, I nervously clung to my dad’s arm as I walked down the aisle of the amazing church, below, to the tune of Pachelbel's Canon. I was so excited to be married in the church that I’d admired since I was a child. It towers over the lawns of

I was 21 when I got married and hadn’t even given vintage fashion a second thought. Although our wedding wasn’t a vintage affair, it was certainly a family one. The occasion brought together family and friends who used their combined skills to create table decorations, wedding favours, cravats, waistcoats, bouquets and the like. Fun was had and memories were made in every favour we tied and in each glue gun burn we got from gluing pine cones onto wire! Mr Y still has a small scar on his stomach where the wire cutters caught him when he was cutting a particularly awkward piece of wire!
You’ll know from my previous posts that I simply don’t “do” pictures of me. I’m an incredibly camera shy person and actively go out of my way to be behind the camera, never in front of it. (I’m also very shy in person which can be somewhat of a trial when manning the stall!). However, as it’s a “special occasion”, I though I’d finally put one on here, albeit a very small one!
My goodness, how young we look!! It certainly doesn’t feel like it’s been 10 years, it's so scary how time flies! The amazing journey that began at the altar as just the two of us is now a journey of 4 as we have been blessed with 2 beautiful little girls and are looking forward to what the next 10 years. and beyond, will bring us all.
To celebrate, we’re child free this weekend (something which fills me with mixed emotions as I'll miss the little critters) and are heading to Norwich for a spot of Christmas shopping. Oh, and to take a peek in the Cath Kidston shop where a much coveted knitting bag beckons. (Yes, I could probably buy it on line but I want to actually see how many balls of wool I can successfully stuff into it!)
As if that weren't enough, On Sunday, we’re going into
Whatever you are up to, I hope you all have a lovely weekend :o)
