Is it the look in your eyes, or is it this dancing juice, who cares baby...


Lovely weekend.
A whole nine child free hours together at a family wedding.
A chance to drink, eat and dance to Stevie Wonder...to reflect a little on when we did this:


And, as married couples tend to do at other couples' weddings, to reflect on the for better for worses, for richer for poorers, in sickness and in healths that every marriage faces. To perhaps exchange a cross word after one too many glasses of champagne, but to hit the dancefloor and to come out feeling stronger.

On a slightly lighter note, a chance to shop online with Zalando, who offered me a voucher with which I bought the dress I wore.   Zalando have an amazing range of shoes , clothes, accessories and beauty products. I had a great shopping experience, so much choice, lots of stuff you wouldn't see elsewhere, plus lots of great brands you will know.  

The dress arrived so carefully packaged there was no need for ironing (bonus given I don't).  My only complaint is I am easily bamboozled by having too many options.  However, you can use the search facility to narrow down by price, brand, colour, or special offer.  I would also like to be able to narrow by style, although saying that, this empire line dress jumped out at me really quickly.

Snow, and the wedding being on a farm, gave me big footwear dilemmas.  But the venue inside was incredibly spectacular, far removed from farm life, and the ladies shoe stakes were so high and classy. I'm so relieved I ditched my boots on arrival for my Irregular Choice Patty.


Congrats to D and S.  It is of course all about them, and not us, or my frock, although any excuses to shop, and to enjoy being a couple when parents, must be seized with relish.  It was a fabulous wedding, they are an amazing couple and they chose an awesome venue in Heaton House Farm.  By midnight I was so overcome by loveliness and champagne, all I could do was stare at the magical starlit black curtains.  And, just look at this stunning photography by Light Majestic.
