Laughter is spilling out into the hallway as we are mindlessly running around the empty property we're happy to be the main and (so far) only inhabitants for the next three weeks. Our landlords are leisurely sat in games room or on decked area for a quiet read under the parasol overlooking turquoise surface of the pool overtaken by colourful inflatables of their beautiful secluded farmhouse in France and this time there is nobody to come unexpectedly to rent quiet rooms plentiful in soft cat hair and their confident appearance at any given time. Even so I expressed my wish of inviting Damian's brother with his fiancèe to stay with us for a couple of days since the cluttered rooms are irresistible for napping at high noon or eating juicy fruit leaving marks all over rugs. Because it's not only flinging the patio door open enabling summer to enter to keep us on top of our moods but we have more fascinating news to think about - Damian's twin brother is getting married in less than three weeks time!!! I know, right!

I'll tell you their romantic story next time so you can immediately fall in love with the idea of enthusiastic elopement away from the hustle and bustle to perfect African settings. The only downside is we're not going to see them tying the knot and dancing till dawn with stars hung over their heads. But on the other hand I love how without worries and distractions they will carry each other to new destinations and the peaceful surroundings flooding their senses will be remembered for happy years to come. How exciting!

Helping others with their big day undoubtedly brought thoughts to our well-postponed celebration of love. Will we be next in line to the city hall? Wearing delicate custom made puffy white dress or exploring my closet to see what could casually work on steps outside the building while Damian sporting a black tuxedo would unwittingly attract the girls watching us on the street. Yeah, picturing it makes me a little itchy. But isn't love we have for each other enough to match any - big and expensive or unique and intimate wedding? Will it mean for me more than all the marriages in my family devastatingly ended, painfully remembered and happily forgotten? I will clap and cheer, throw confetti on anyone walking down the aisle, listen carefully to their vows. I will love that. But we've written our vows a long time ago with tears and laughter, arguments and promises. We've lived a married life for four years now and loved most of it. It might feel just right one day to have a tea ceremony or a proper wedding being more about family and friends however we're happy just the way we are. Who's getting married next? I'll excitedly stop off at my favorite sidewalk flower stand in my neighborhood to pick up a bouquet on the way!

    1. It's my job to preserve memories, announce events, share emotions. I love to bits.
