Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Can we make our dreams come true?

Once upon a time there was a little girl
who was fortunate enough to spend her summers
at the beach.

She always dreamed that when she married
the wedding would take place on that very beach.

Years passed, she met Prince Charming and plans were made
a year in advance of the event.

Then, as the event approaches,
we endure the wettest, coldest Spring in decades.

However, the little girl, now bride-to-be, 
holds onto her dream...and lo
as the day arrives...

not a cloud in the sky...

and so, with only the softest of ocean breezes,
preparations begin...

friends and family assemble...

and in the warmest of sunshine, the dream plays out...

yes, I think...when we truly know what it is we want,
and we hold fast, and believe...

dreams do come true.


  1. There couldn't have been a more beautiful venue, and I like the contrast between the formality of dress and the beach.

  2. And no shoes Mise...none of the bridal party had to worry about shoes to match, blisters, blah, blah, blah!!!

  3. Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! Makes me want to get married all over again!! :-))

  4. Those pictures are so lovely and your new header is just fabulous. It must have been so romantic - wow! Have a great week, Love from London xo

  5. So beautiful, best wishes to the happy couple.


  6. Beautiful dream!

    My favourite photo is of the three little bridesmaids walking down the beach with the bride walking behind them in the distance.

    I LOVE the yellow.

  7. Gorgeous photos, the yellow is so pretty. Love the bare kind of wedding.

  8. What a perfectly beautiful day for a perfectly beautiful wedding...everyone looks so relaxed and happy.
    Congratulation and 'warm' wishes to the bride and groom!
    xo J~


Go on...make my day...
