The Gallery - Expressions

Last week for The Gallery I shared me and my best friend in a fashion rite of passage:

Low and behold, I saw her last night, and during a fab girls' night  in - which she expertly hosted, with dinner, vino, cupcakes, choccies and facepacks - she presented me with a photo in a frame.  She is a girl for whom actions speak louder than words, and I love her for it.

It immediately hit me as the image I hadn't yet found for this week's The Gallery, where the theme is expressions. So moving on twenty years...

It's at A's wedding last summer.  The band The Jungle VIP were amazing.  My mum was just about to leave but a tune we couldn't resist came on, and A, mum and I had one last impromptu dance together.  I love our expressions...

A looks absolutely radiant, she had the biggest grin I have ever seen all day.  (She married very well, in fact her husband cooked for all eight of us girls last night, before making himself scarce). 

Mum loved to dance, round the kitchen every Friday with  G and T in hand.  Her dancing was infectious and soon pulled everyone in.  And she was a professional smiler.

I am loving being a bridesmaid, and my expression, well... that's jazz, funk appreciation.

Check out all the other expressions in the lovely Sticky Fingers The Gallery

It's a great one. But I bet your Mum's up there giving out about the fact she didn't take her coat off for the snap and now you're sharing it with the world!

I have a brilliant, life long friend like that. They really do make life so lovely, don't they?

I've just read a few pages of your blog and I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Also, we must live close if you live near HPH! We live in the Gamston/West Bridgford area. xxx

May I say that in last year's pic you look just you are being goosed?! Lovely of your mum (bet the blogging and photo-finding is helping with everything) and I'll agree with Kate that your mum's jacket is a bit of a sartorial non-sequitur! Thanks for stopping by again - I am joining the blogging (human) race and now have the silent sunday badge - now looking for wordless wednesday too!
