The Christmas Sunday R&R

Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all thro’ the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse – well apart from those like me trying to source the last minute presents and work out a Boxing Day menu!

How are your Christmas plans going Trulovers, are you all organised and sorted?  Are there any Trulovers who are getting married over the festive season?

Although it maybe Christmas week and I do have some festive treats planned for you, fear not there will still be a post every day and lots of wedding inspiration over this festive week.

So why I am off to check my present list again, I will leave you a chance to catch up on the week in The Sunday R&R.  In the spirit of Christmas and the colourful festive season, Monday started off with a fun wedding with bursts of colour explosion – read full wedding here.
