The Gallery, via Sticky Fingers, week 37 - Celebration

This is my first entry into The gallery. I have been admiring everyone else's photos for months now. And I have finally plucked up the courage to join the party. If you are not sure what it's all about, then follow the link above and take a look at the brilliant Sticky Fingers blog.

My friend Nix tying me up and my beautiful Mum on her 60th birthday!

Today's theme for The gallery is "Celebration".  I have chosen this picture taken on my wedding day 1st May 2008 as I really like the photo and it covers two celebrations.  One being my wedding obviously and the second being my mother's 60th birthday.  Can you believe it?  She looked fabulous as you can see and nowhere near sixty years old!


  1. Gorgeous picture!

    You both look so relaxed and happy!
