The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday – how is everyone and what are we all up to today?  I have my monthly planning meeting with Mr T, blogging and then off to the coast for a walk and some photos. That sounds like a lot, best get the first pot of coffee on and get cracking on with The Sunday R&R.

On Monday we started with a romantic weekend wedding in Versailles, when Dominic proposed to Vanessa’s with her Grandmother’s vintage wedding ring at a beautiful log cabin in Canada, it was only the beginning of their story, that ended with a romantic weekend wedding in Versailles France. See full wedding in France.
