5 more sleeps

5 more sleeps and then European Boy and I take our first road trip together. I have never travelled more in the past year ... We have travelled to Knysna, Cape Town, Northern Province, to Mauritius and more... but we have never taken a road trip together and they say it can tell a lot. I must admit, I'm not worried, I'm excited.
I'm the nerd who is making playlists on my iPod called RoadTrip. I'm stocking up on food for our trip and looking for little places to stop at along the way.

We are travelling down for my "twins" beach wedding. It's amazing to think we have been friends for 9 years, we have been through University together, we've bought ice-cream for each others break-ups and shared several Dacquiri's, secrets and laughs together.... Strangely enough, I knew her and her fiance individually ... Both amazing people. 2 and a bit years ago when I met her for our monthly breakfast I could see there was something up. She was giggly and glowing. The obvious next question was: "Who is he?"
When she told me, it was PERFECT. I couldn't imagine a better man for my friend ... They are the perfect match!
I even remember saying: "Friend, watch... you mark my words.... you guys are so meant for each other just by knowing you both individually...You're going to marry him!"
In 6 more sleeps that is exactly what she'll be doing and I couldn't be more thrilled.

She's having it on the beach... I've never been to a beach wedding and actually it's something I've always imagined I would do one day, for my own wedding.
I'm really excited.
European Boy and I have also extended our time down there and we plan to have a weeks holiday.
I seriously need it. It's been a hectic year so far... no complaints, but it's still hectic.
Feeling drained and I know the salty sea breeze, the sand between my toes and the melodic sound of the ocean is exactly what I need to recharge my spirit.

This is the very view we will be sipping sundowners to.... 5 more sleeps...

I see u as a sea-maid cuz; firstly u r a shell, secondly, it seems u are fond of sea and sea scenes, and thirdly, u have a keen POETIC eye and a real sensitive feeling of beauty. I witness u could unite between the beauty of soul and of Nature. you know Beauty leads to truth -- as keats puts it: "Beauty is Truth, truth beauty". carry on.
