Nicola’s Christening

What a day…a beautiful, overwhelming day. Mum would’ve loved the turn out, infact, she would have loved everything. I wore the dress she wore to my wedding in honour of her. I needed her to be there in some way or form, this was the way I could do it best. The lead up, mind […] Read more…
