The Girls Go To The Caravan.

So one of the best things about owning a static caravan is being able to invite friends for a weekend away. Our caravan is in the village of Melmerby in the Eden Valley in Cumbria, close enough in driving distance to the beautiful LakeΒ  District, but in a less busy touristy area. On Friday five of us drove up to the van for a girls getaway.Β  We spent an enjoyable and chilled couple of days there. Here are a few photos from our trip.

A September Wedding.

Yesterday I was a bridesmaid for my good friend Arwen who’m I have known since primary school. It was an amazing day and I feel so honored to have been chosen to share in her and Ian’s celebrations. I thought I would quickly show you a couple of piccies from the wedding….before I go on my holidays. πŸ™‚

The wedding was held in the pretty Ribble valley village of Slaidburn. It was the first nuptials in the church there for two years. The wedding breakfast and evening reception were both held in the newly built village Hall and the catering was done by the local Hark To Bounty pub. So it was a real Village celebration.

Friends for many years. :)

Arwen wore a stunning gown from Orchid Bridal designs in Clitheroe and Vicky and I wore beautiful azure blue dresses from Amelias in Clitheroe. We loved the colour so much. I am very tempted to get mine shortened so I can wear it in the future as a cocktail type dress. If I ever go anywhere posh enough of course !

Hope you liked the pictures. πŸ™‚

Thanks to Emiline Drachenberg and Sarah Allen for the photographs.

September ~ changes in the scenery.

Its been a while since I wandered down the fields, along the brook and to the river ribble. I was surprised by the changes that have happened in only a few weeks. Leaves are subtly changing colour, birds are enjoying the ripening wild berries that adorn the hedgerows and some flowers are looking a little fuzzy round the edges. Summer still lingers however. Its a lovely warm day. πŸ™‚
