The important thing to remember is that it is the journey that counts, not the destination..

"Most of our lives are a series of images, they pass us by like towns on a highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever."-Lucas Eugene Scott [One Tree Hill, Season Three]

My posts will be about life, influenced by all the moments and memories that inspire, challenge and touch me..

It's the Simple Things that Count..

This weekend I travelled the hour and 40 minutes that separate me and my best friend Adina. She is getting married at the end of the year and I am her maid of honour, I am so excited and honoured that she asked me to have this role. I have been helping her plan and put together the wedding, pre-wedding events, ceremony, reception included. So this weekend's trip was a chance to go over things and start organising the remaining aspects that hadn't been discussed or looked into yet.

This weekend not only provided a chance for wedding organisation and plans, but a chance for us to catch up and enjoy each others company for awhile. Alot has changed since Adina moved away- compared to living a few streets away from each other, which means we see each other a lot less.

When I got there, it was straight to business of catching up- changing into our pjs, pulling out some snack food and watching some dvds. We had alot to cover and laughed alot. It was lovely. Like most best friends, we speak our own language, know each others stories and can pretty much communicate without actually talking.

The next day we had a wedding planning 'meeting' on the fold out futon. Listening to possible wedding songs and discussing ideas for various aspects of the wedding day. Then in the afternoon with the sun spilling in from the window, we decided to have a nap.

It was so nice, to crawl under the doona (warm from the sun) and share private jokes as we fell asleep. It is those little, simple things that I look back on and favour the most. Two days of hanging in our pjs, a nap in the sun and countless laughing... including pillow fights and play fights.

Here is a pic of us about to have our nanna nap:

What is a simple moment with a friend that you love to look back on?

  1. Thank you so much. I have a very big interest in weddings and would love to work in the field. I had a quick glance at your website and I would be really interested in finding out some more about your courses. Considering doing more wedding themed posts. Also check out my sister blog for the style seeking girl. Thanks! Sarah (Kooklah)
