And what a busy weekend it’s been! The summer finally feels like its on its way, although being in Britain it will probably be short lived. Luckily we got a taste of sunshine just in time for my birthday, however it was not so good for my skin! (Always remember your sunscreen ladies!)
My weekend started with Chester races. If you have never been I would seriously reccomend it. Every year it makes me feel like summer has finally arrived, it’s a great day out and you can flutter a little or a lot. I chose to dress up in this beautiful mint green French connection number, and a gorgeous accessorize necklace, courteousy of Mr Wilson for my birthday (sometimes they get presents so right!!!)
Craig chose to opt for a navy blue topman suit, which I feel made him look very handsome, but then I’m biased and a lucky lady!
On an even better note we both won! Which makes the races all the more exciting!
Sunday the sunshine continued where we had the pleasure of attending a birthday lunch for a family member of Craig’s. it was at a beautiful place called Sweeney Hall in Oswestry. It boasted high ceilings, chandeliers, delicious food and countryside grounds that went on for miles, I feel it would be the perfect place for a low key summer wedding with lots of photographic arches and gardens. It’s just gorgeous, don’t you agree?!
This is my favourite silly photo of the day!
We finished off the weekend at my parents house where my sister was also visiting. Now we have all flown the nest my parents have called it the “spa retreat” (it’s basically parental nesting in reverse) they’ve re painted the pool in a gorgeous pale blue colour, decorated the bathroom, the kitchen and the garden furniture and fitted a “gym.”It’s like having our own private boutique hotel.
All in all my birthday weekend was perfect, full of sunshine, family. A girl can’t ask for anything more!
Until next time…
