Darlings, Happy Anniversary

Today my daughter,  Kerri,  and her husband,  James,  celebrate their 9th wedding anniversary.   Destiny certainly did her job well as they are the most suited couple I know and I would like to share a few snaps from their wedding day in their honour.

                            Kerri and her dad (my first hubby) Kevin

                                     During their vows
                                   Mr and Mrs Brooks    YAY!
                          With her Mumma and Pappa as a married girl!
                                                                                                          Posing with her little brother (Pt 1)
                                                                                                          And posing with him again (Pt 2)

I could have uploaded hundreds of snaps but I'm happy with the chosen few.    This below picture simply sums up my girl.   No airs or graces with her!    Cop a load of this........
                                                          My funny, funny girl.....!

Despite the temperature in the 90's,  my ringlet hair-do unfurling in the humidity,  the wedding taxi getting 'lost' on the way to the reception then fleecing us for all he could via our Scots accent,  and me forgetting my choker flower,  it was a brilliant day.   Bouncy castle and wedding bubbles for the adults  kids,  and free booze for the  kids, too  adults,  helped keep the day magical.  

Everyone had a fabulous time.   There was no 'exes' awkwardness.   I get on really well with my ex husband and his family - still get invites from ex-in-laws to attend functions and celebrations!  ( Life's too short for memory shackles!).   And my son-in-law's family are so sweet and sincere.   I think as a unit we're all delightfully nutty - which helps!

Overall, my biggest relief,  with being more than 500 hundred miles from my angel,  is that I don't have to worry about her.  She simply has a gem of a husband.  

Congrats, Kek and Jamesina.....XxX....looking forward to your 10th...!!
