Although there were lots of them taken on the day, I think this photo is fast becoming my favourite photo from our engagement session a few weeks back and I am now declaring it our Official Photograph (much in the same way that royals and celebrities have official photographs!).
Extra special thanks to Annette Burke at 4ever Photos who was great at making us feel relaxed enough to get natural shots, who made us laugh and who fell in love with Mr Marshall's tattoos! The word on the street is that 4ever Photos have won a very special award this year - all will be revealed after the official announcement!

Thank you so much to Melissa for presenting me with "Making Smiles on Faces" Award! I've never had an award before and I'm so pleased she seen me fit to have it. You're a pretty inspiring blog-writing star Melissa! Check her blog out if you get a chance.
It would seem that I have to expose myself with 5 random facts before I can accept and pass on this award, so here you are:
- I can't resist pressing the cancel button on the toaster before it finishes.
- I am a hair twirler and twiddler.
- I always worry about what to wear.
- I need to starting dealing with the fact that life will not be perfect like it is in TV ads and movies.
- I can't stop looking at my engagement ring - 5 months down the line!
The lovely folk I would like to pass this award on to are:
- Sian at From High in the Sky
- Laura at Lazy Dynamics
- SJ at Little Musings
- Donna at Button Garden
- April at Capture the Memories.
All very much deserved ladies!

Yesterday I registered for one of Jessica Sprague’s classes – which just happens to be free (!) – Holidays in Hand. The only requirement for this class is that you have holiday stories to tell, and while I’m not sure how particularly exciting mine may be, what I do have a real need for are Jessica’s fab free downloads and tutorials. I’ve taken a couple of her classes before – Frame-Ups and Special Effects and Brush Abilities – and I promise she doesn’t disappoint. If you fancy taking part in Holidays in Hand, registration is unlimited and the class runs from 16-23 November.
Talking of Christmas, last year was the first in 30 that Santa didn’t officially visit to my mum and dad’s (where we celebrate the day) because the youngest in the family was then 12 - and I think we done well to last that long. I have to say it’s just not the same and I can’t wait until we have little ones to bring back the magic of Christmas. More and more I am finding myself looking forward to having little ones and thinking that they will make outings etc so much more special. (Is it wrong to want kids so I have great material to scrapbook? I think yes.)
In other news, and on the wedding front, I am patiently waiting to see the online proofs of the engagement photo session we had last Saturday. I am calling these our unofficial photos because we got a free portrait voucher and I am hoping that our chosen wedding photographer will include an e-session for us as part of the deal with him/her. This was a great opportunity for Mr Marshall to practice not using his fake smile which he is already stressing about when he thinks of the big day. I have tried to reassure him that on the day he will be filled with so much love and joy that he won’t be able to stop himself smiling from ear to ear every time he looks at me. But he’s not buying it and neither am I!!

As I’m just new to this blogging malarkey I thought some prompts from the master might help me along and increase the number of readers I have. (I usually clap with glee when I see someone has visited.)
To all my fellow classmates, I look forward to reading your fab blogs and thanks in advance to anyone who visits mine :)
Over the space of the next 3 weeks I promise not to:
· beat myself up if I don’t post
· think that my life isn’t interesting enough to blog about
· compare my blog to others’ and feel inferior.
