Hello sweet friends!
I hope your summer is blissful and relaxing, like it was when we were kids.. Remember those days- running, laughing and being silly..Who wants to grow up!!! Not me! People might say I live in a fairytale world----- well, they're right! It's so much more fun!!! Believing in the MAGIC..Does it exist you ask?? Magic I mean??? Only if you want it too- with a positive attitude, faith, and the notion that life can be exactly what you envisioned it to be, just like when we were little. Children are innocent- they tend to see life for what is was intended to be. Life is beautiful, new and an adventure. One of my favorite childhood movies was Peter Pan. I especially loved the newer version with Robin Williams...You see what can happen to a man when he loses sight of his identity- his true sense of self- his childhood innocence. He becomes broken..... Remember the old man in the movie who lost his “ marbles” , yet to re-discover them again… He never really lost them at all- just forgotten for a spell…
But Peter Pan is a fictional character you say…It’s not real.. I mean, c’mon the guy could fly! You definitely have a point there- , however, the concept of identifying with our own true-selves, combating all outside alterations, will ultimately be our reality.
Which brings me to my point.
I had the pleasure of creating a magically ‘ impromptu” wedding in my backyard July 4th for my niece Melissa and her new husband, Stephen. Their love story is the epitome of romance and magic!
Meet our own Wendy and Peter Pan-
A quick introduction-
My niece Melissa, who had just moved back to Boston 3 months ago from Florida, (she was living there for 7 years prior).. He ( the groom Stephen) is right off the boat from Ireland, whose been living in Nantucket Island for the past 2 years. They met at the Black Rose in Boston 3 months ago, via me, the matchmaker.. It was love at first sight! After a short courtship, and realizing they couldn’t live one day apart from eachother, they wanted to elope on Nantucket, however, Melissa couldn’t go through with it without her family by her side.. So, my sister Cheryl ( Melissa’s mom) and I put together a very quaint and intimate ( 25 people in all) wedding in my backyard with literally one week to pull it off. It was simple, sweet and utterly magically .
This adorable sign was all hand painted by my friend Jeannine!
We all had a ball. The guests said, the best fun they had at a wedding. The blissful couple will do it all over again, this time in Ireland for Stephen's family, August 9, 2014.
… believe magic exists-
After all, it’s what dreams are really made of…
Until next time, keep it happy!
