Today is the 28th January, and exactly one month since John and I were married. I've had that time now to enjoy it, and then start to look back at it, put things into their places (mental filing!) and enjoy being a wife. I promise I have plenty of things to share for it, too. It's so important with something so big to let everything settle into place. This is the vintage bridal headpiece I wore. It also had a veil but I washed it afterwards and ruined it – whoops – but I didn't mind at all. Some things are really only meant to be worn once, and it had its moment. I almost didn't wear the headpiece and veil at all, and in the months leading up to it was actually sure I wouldn't. It was only in the final last weeks I thought about how much I'd always liked the idea of the veil... and only on the morning itself I went with it! And it was amazing to have this pale, airy flag flying about my face in the strong hot summer winds, bright white and dazzling and such a symbol for just one thing: a bride. In fact, it helped to make the day feel just that little bit more dramatic, and made me enjoy the crazy wind for a change!

the wedding headpiece and the veil that was
Hello, ah, Tuesday! Feeling very happy and relaxed after the long weekend. We did very little and enjoyed being very anti social, staying cocooned at home, safe on the sofa eating peaches just harvested from a local-ish orchard that had to be cleared. We also finally started watching Game of Thrones and oh, ok, the hype makes sense now – we're HOOKED! Already into season 2. It's going to be a mostly very hot week so I think a few more evenings at home with the air con – and, erm, GoT on the telly – might just be necessary..!
