There’s just that something different in the air today in Sydney. It feels warmer. That cold winter gust is missing. The fact that I wore leggings under my skirt today seemed a bit of an overkill. I think today marked the expectation of Spring.

With Spring comes wedding season. We received a wedding invitation in the post. There’s something special about receiving an old fashioned beautiful paper invitation. It just brings a smile to my face. I hope some traditions never change.
