Perceptions

One of my lovely hen gifts was Greenery Street by Denis Mackail. About a couples first year of marriage. So to get us in the mood some images of 1920's inspired wedding style...

I read it on honeymoon and it really was a reading a book at the right time in your life. Being on honeymoon thinking 'Can people see we're newly married? On our honeymoon?' and then I read this....

'I wonder if I shall ever feel as married as she looks.' Denis Mackail Greenery Street

and it summed up how I felt...

  3. I wonder if I could postpone reading it until such times as I am getting married... definitely one to keep in mind!

  4. Sounds wonderful. I'm already married for a number of years so I wonder if it will still resonate with me. I have this book in my To be Read pile. Have to read it soon! Lovely blog you have here.

  7. I remember feeling something like that after I was married. I love reading all these tempting reviews, it's like slowly discovering a box of chocolates, with each one slightly different yet all tempting in their own way.
