Yesterday one of my best childhood friends got married. She will be moving to Czech Republic in a few weeks with her new groom. I have mixed feelings about this, mostly because sadly we've grown apart over the past few years. On one hand I haven't been involved in her life really for a while now so there is no longer really that once close friendship to miss, I also know that despite mine and others feelings towards her husband in the past she is very happy to be married to him and I suppose I can't really wish for anything more for her. I am sad for her parents and only sister that they won't get to see her much and that when she inevitably has children that they will grow up away from their extended family. I suppose that's the tough decision she has made in order to be with the man she loves and who am I to judge when I would do the same thing.
It's strange getting to that time where my friends are starting to get married (and my sister in less than 3 months!) Yesterday I couldn't help thinking back on our friendship and how long we've known each other and how much we've both changed and stayed the same in different ways. It's a part of my life that's over in a way and as difficult as change can be, I have to accept it and move forwards.
Here are the photos from the Wedding ceremony in Drogheda and the reception in Trim Castle Hotel.
Apparently breaking a plate and the groom cleaning it up is a Czech tradition
Kaunas is the capital of Lithuania (where Jennifer's brother in law is from and Colette's fiancé-they're brothers!)
A trio of desserts- Brownie, Banoffie and Cheesecake (I forgot to take a photo of the main course which was beef/salmon)
Do you like my nails? i tried out the New French manicure that's apparently a big thing in fashion now. Not that I would know!
How was your week? I had a busy one and I have lots more photos of birthdays to share with you over the next few days.
Thanks for taking the time to look through all the photos!
