A Winter Morning

The Morning after my brother's wedding I awoke to a picturesque snowy morning. Here's a short piece of observational writing I jotted down.

I've had a lovely, if utterly exhausting trip to see my husbands family in Wales. it's the biggest, most anxiety provoking thing I have attempted in over two years. I survived it. I also learned that a lot of family in Wales read my blog. Hi Guys. I will probably natter on about it a bit … Continue reading I’m back!
