The second instalment from the Hobson wedding, after a rainy dash from Atholl Palace to Blair Castle in some gorgeous vintage cars, Claire arrived at the castle to the welcoming sound of the pipes (although young Archie didnt find it so welcoming, bless!) so the pipes ceased so to settle the young man. Leaving Claire and her father Gordon a few peaceful moments to revel in the day. During a unique ceremony, with lots of amusing tales from Chris and Claires lives together causing a full house of smiles. A lovely tradition a hand fasting was performed by a great down to earth minister, Jane Betchel. Again young Archie wanting to be involved made sure he said his piece during the ceremony, while playing cars through his fathers feet!
All in all it was a spectacular day.....to be remembered by many...

Was my birthday and thoroughly spoilt I was. Normally a day I like to take off and devote to having fun, this year due to a busier calendar, work beckoned but was still fun. Even better when I arrived home to flowers, goodies and love and laughter galore from my boys. What a welcome home, another moment I appreciated what lovely family and friends I have. Not to mention my favourite - a seafood feast prepared lovingly by my man, finished off with a home baked cake from my mama.....spoiled ;-)
~Thank you everyone~ xxx and a week later my flowers are still blooming, Im taking that as a good sign of the next year to come!
