every little girl's dream

It's every little girl's dream to be a flower girl.

I remember being a flower girl at my Auntie Hazel's wedding way back when I was around 4 or 5 years old. I just thought I was the bees knees. I specifically remember the huge hoop in the hem of the dress and I also remember finding a shaver a few weeks before the wedding and doing a number on my chin! Thankfully it was all healed up in time for the wedding. That little flower girl dress still hangs in my wardrobe, along with the headpiece, for Lilah to play with some day.

And so today Lilah was asked if she would be a flower girl at our good friends wedding next August, all being well. I just know our girly-girl is going to love love love this little task. Thank you so much for asking C-ella & Bin-e, that's Ciela and Vinny, said Lilah style!

    You've just reminded me that I have flower girl dress and head piece at mums that I wore at my uncle's wedding when I was 3. Must get it out and try on Victoria.

    Many thanks for card & photo. Everytime we go near the computer Victoria says 'want watch Lilah!'

    You have some gorgeous photos. Safe travel for later in the year.
