A Wedding Invitation and a Hug
It’s no secret that I have a talented and very artistic daughter. Her cards often arrive late, but are always a pleasure to receive. The Easter card shown above brought particular joy because out of it slipped a small black invitation card.
Lisa has led an often troubled life and has had much to overcome. I am enormously proud of her, and can hardly wait for this most special of occasions. Slight doubts though, as to what the mother of the bride wears to a Steampunk Wedding? The honeymoon will be in Venice, for Carnavale, lucky girl. To attend is a lifelong dream of hers. I wish them all the love and luck in the world.
As if this wasn’t enough to gladden my week, I have also been awarded a Hug from Francine in Retirement. I’ve long been an admirer of Francine’s blog so was truly humbled to receive this nomination. Not being sure of blog etiquette in this matter, I need to point out that I had previously been nominated for the Hug Award by Alyson Sheldrake of The Thought Palette. On that occasion I wrote A hug a day in acceptance of the award, and nominated a couple of blogs. I plan to extend that nomination today to:
Ana at 1001 Scribbles
Patti of Read Me
Elisa at Fun and Fabulousness
Sonel at Sonel’s Photographic Corner
All of these blogs give me enormous pleasure. I should also say thank you to Conny on A Hope for Today who originated the Hug Award.
Please join me next week on Cate’s Six word Saturday and we’ll see just what the week’s brought. You could even have a little fun and play too?
