Over to Jen..
The most beautiful day I ever had …… It was my wedding day nearly 20 years ago now. I married the love of my life and it was perfect. Well it wasn’t perfect, but it was beautiful. There was something magical about my Dad walking me down the aisle and the laughter we had in the car before going in to the church. It was the day that we committed our love for each other with our family and friends.
The most beautiful thing I have ever seen … Oh this is a toss-up for me between the boys! I couldn’t pick, they are both unique and beautiful in different ways. My boy’s sleeping take my breath away when I look at them I am filled with such maternal love. I never thought it was possible to feel this way about someone, let alone two people.
The most beautiful thing I have ever owned … The diamond earrings that I wear every day. My husband bought them for me when we visited South Africa before the boys were born. It was a magical holiday, a magical time and for me all that was perfect is wrapped up in them. Plus as a Mum I wear them all the time where as my rings and other jewellery is on and off!
The most beautiful song I have ever heard ….. Street Spirit by Radiohead. When I first heard this song I stopped doing what I was doing and just listened. It has become my song and it will be played at my funeral!
The most beautiful person I know is….. My Dad. He was one of those people that others gravitated too. He was fun to be with and well respected. He was the perfect Dad, but more than that he was a good man.
The most beautiful thing about me is…… My loyalty. I am fiercely loyal and I would die for my family. My family are my world, my everything and love being with them.
Lovely Jen thanks so much for sharing your beautiful things
