The Sunday R&R

A bright and cheery I there and hello for the last Sunday in June!  Did I blink and where did June go, well if you are in the UK at the moment, certainly June did not rush past through to long sunny evenings, but fingers crossed July will be better.

However as usual I digress so back with the Sunday R&R and on Monday we went to Chamonix for Sarah & Mike’s wedding.  On the slops of Mont Blanc it was an intimate affair for their closest friends & family from Australia in a 5 star French Alps wedding venue with the help of Haute Weddings. Read full post on 5 star wedding in Chamonix.
