Blessing a nephew

Hello everyone, happy Friday! I am very sorry for how slack I have been with posting regularly. It's not that I haven't had anything to write about, because I have, it's just been hard to get me sat down at my pc lately. I put blogging on my to do list every day but then more stuff gets added to the list and it gets pushed further and further down until I have no time left in the day. My last proper post was just after Light Night which was on a Friday but the very next day, we ended up taking a long drive to bless a nephew.

Last year saw the blessing of two of my nieces; Ava and Evangeline, this time we were blessing a nephew, Arthur. We did the two and half hour drive, getting to the chapel in time and the whole blessing took about ten minutes. Two hymns, two prayers, the blessing and we were done. Back in the car we made our way to a pub for a post-blessing family and friends gathering. Vala's dad attended the gathering and nearly got his legs taken off by Vala as she crash tackled him with hugs. He spent the majority of the gathering sitting with Jordan and I; thankfully we've reached an amblicible level we're we can be friendly with one another without any awkwardness. It was a really enjoyable gathering though, everyone had a great time. I appointed myself photographer for the day as I had my camera on me and figured I'd take some happy snaps so that everyone else could enjoy themselves and still have memories to look back on. The blessing and the gathering went off without a hitch and we all had a wonderful day. I loved catching up with family again, as did Vala. It's always lovely seeing her and Flynn playing with their aunts, uncles and cousins. Meant to be heading back to visit family for Ava's first birthday next month and we're already looking forward to that!

Again, I'm sorry for the lack of regular posts lately, I'm going to try and improve on that. I need to get a schedule together again.

...Until next time,
Alli xo
