The Sunday R&R

Hello Lovely Readers! How has your weekend been so far?  Mine has mainly been a mix of work, feeling very retro and escaping for a mid afternoon film with popcorn and laughing more than I have in ages. By the way I love that I can sit in an extremely comfy chair and enjoy a relatively nice glass of wine (for a cinema) whilst enjoying the movie! Today is about shiny new toys, work and then I am looking forward to finishing the weekend off with drinks and chat with friends tonight.

Anyway on with The Sunday R&R and it was off to the US for our first real wedding of the week and a picturesque setting at a lake in Washington State.  See full Washington State wedding and be sure to check out the sea plane!
