Well……I did say that I was going to “blog” a bit more and that really was my intention…but I got a tad busy in “Loveland “…!!!….and considering I started this blog in December of 2013…..and it’s now nearly Easter 2014 …time has once again run away from me !!!
2013 was a huge year…I did get “knocked off my feet’ for a while literally! ….when I had a foot reconstruction at the end of May…..for someone that is used to being busy…boy oh boy, that stopped me in my tracks !! lol
I remember the surgeon saying….”you will not be doing anything for at least 3 to 6 months !!!!!!!!!!
I just replied….”we will see…you don’t really know me !” lol
7 weeks later there I was back doing my 1st wedding post op…in moon boot and crutches!…. I perched myself up on a stool and back in the saddle……after all it was only my foot that was broken …not my head …( Ok! Ok! ..some of you may question that …lol)
The year of 2013 has come to an end and I now reflect on what a fantastic year it has been….87 weddings later and my spirit and soul feel more enriched and blessed by each and every one of them.
I love the fact that they have all been unique each in their own special way…they should be…you are all to me unique as a couples you are !!
There have been so many perfect scenarios I have had the pleasure of being a part of …From the small elopements under a beautiful big fig tree …intimate gatherings at sunrise on the beach …or wonderful sunsets from the peak of a mountain …. horse drawn Cinderella carriages to amazing African cultures and colourful dancing and singing to welcome the bride…it has truly been a year of…WOW! WOW! WOW!!!!
The places I have been and the things I have seen makes me wish I could invent a magic love dust that I could sprinkle over everybody….people thank me for doing their wedding….but it really should be the other way around….you have allowed me into your special world and given me the gift of creating what works for you…..so hey, I’m the lucky one !! J….Yes this is what I do for my living, and it pays my bills and keeps a roof over my head and food on the table…but it’s not about the money….its about having the opportunity to do what is my passion….and that, I will always be so thankful for and never take for granted.
Here we are now in March 2014 and clearly, already, it’s going to be just as big as 2013….in fact bigger than last year…..my most busy year to date….with National and international travel happening for ceremonies, I can’t believe how amazing my journey as a Celebrant is………..and what’s more the bookings are coming in hard and fast for 2015….and now my books have been opened for 2016 as well…yep that’s right 2016…3 bookings so far…..Brides of today are just Uber organized !!
I look forward to each and every one of your beautiful weddings that lie ahead of me….and I thank you, with all my heart, to all of the beautiful couples who’s weddings I have had the pleasure of officiating over, thank you for all your wonderful expressions of love……
Have a fabulous 2014 everyone….and don’t stop feeling the love !! J <3 <3 <3 Tarn xx
