Reason for absence

A warm hello to all my friends! It has been some time that I've been able to post anything - but this is the reason, and I think a very good one too :-)
This is my son and his bride! They were married on the 30th of April. Been together for six years or so and decided there was no reason to drag it out any longer, but to do the right thing and get married. Everything was arranged in approximately 30 days - and what a great day it was! Here's some more pics from the day.

The couple wanted to take some cowboy pics too and this was the hat that the bridegroom wore. Cute pic, I think!

These are pics of hubby & myself and my daughter & son.
This is the bridal couple with my Mother. She will be 76 years young next week!

This pic is of the four generations. And to top it - all 4 firstborns are girls! 
 My sister, myself, Mom and my brother.
This was the table setting. Their color-scheme was red, black & white. The mothers had to wear something red and so did the three sisters from both sides. The fathers as well as their best man, MC & chauffeur all had to wear red ties. Very dramatic but striking.

May they have a long, blessed and happy life together!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. How wonderful for you all Amanda, it looks a wonderful day and all amazing to have been planned so quickly.. Congratulations to the newlyweds! How wonderful your Mum looks for her age... she could easily knock 10 years off the number!

  2. Hey Amanda,

    I have been missing you so... but now I am happy that you were absent from blogland as you were busy with this joyous occasion. Thanks for sharing us lovely pics. All of you look so nice. The bride and the groom look perfect. Hearty congrats to them... The picture with four generations is awesome. And so are all the others.

    I am going to be a year old in blogland, tomorrow... I remember fondly how you were one of my first followers and how I felt so strangely close to you... I hope you are more settled in your new home and will get blogging soon. Cannot wait to see your creations.
