Saturday Photo Hunt --- Emotion




EMOTION


I think everyone would agree that one of the most emotional days in your life is your wedding day. While I think that this old scanned photo shows how happy we were, it was also a day of mixed emotions for me. Although I was marrying a fellow Australian, albeit we were in England at the time, we were setting off to live in Canada which had not featured in my plans at all. But here we are in Vancouver, 47 years later. As the great John Lennon said: Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans!


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE
