the sentimental me .....

 I hope you guys aren't getting sick of hearing about the wedding but it isn't long now (3 weeks tomorrow) and as you can imagine there is so much going on and so much excitement.... I think if you have been following my blog you would realise I adore the little details of life... My hazel eyed girls wedding will definitely not be a grand affair but it will have lots of little details that will make it extra special for her and David....  I am so lucky to have 3 days next week just the 2 of us and we are heading down to Byron Bay to walk, talk, laugh, sing and do a little shopping...  While I am down there I have a few little gifts to give her and this is one of them...  They are a set of little stacking rings with the dates of my parents wedding, our wedding and her wedding.....something new to wear on her wedding day.... Under that I have made her a little draw string bag from vintage french linen (with the initials of her nan in pale blue already stitched on the fabric) and then I have over layered it with a gorgeous old hanky that my nan embroidered....I had a similar sort of little bag on my wedding day and this hanky was my something old....  
I must admit I have my days of sheer joy but I also have the sentimental days where I feel teary all day...that this 19 years has gone WAY too fast... 

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I want to be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes
Everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light
And the world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me
Gives me strength when I'm weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes.....

And when she wraps her hand around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about
In my daughters eyes......
Lyrics from the song In my daughters eyes.....

I've really enjoyed hearing about the wedding Cathy. Love all the very special little touches that will make it such a beautiful day.
I was wondering if the Empire church is the one next to the Empire theatre? If so, I was married there on December 15th 1973, when it was then The Neil st. Methodist church.
