Project Life Tuesday (catching up): A Trip North

The Mom Creative

After a few weeks without posting because of holidays and gallivanting and moving house, it's time for me to catch up with my project life posts!  I'll be sharing two this week and two next, which should catch us up pretty nicely.  Over Easter break I deviated from the one-piture-a-day system, simply because some days were super busy and photo fabulpous, whereas others were more boxes and me.  In a room.  From yesterday I started again with the photo a day system, but I like the themed pages too.  Linking up with the lovely Jessica, as ever!

The first themed spread is photos from our trip north over Easter break.  We spent time in Cramlington with Matthew's family, I zipped up to Edinburgh to see my sweet friend Jenna, her husband Chris, and her family (Jenna lives in Dallas now, so any chance to catch up is a real blessing!), and we went to Keir and Hannah's beautiful wedding in Pontefract too.  Such fun!

Keir and Hannah's wedding took place on Easter Monday, in lovely Yorkshire.  I only had my teeny tiny camera with me so failed to get many pics (and none of the bride and groom, oops - but there are tonnes on facebook far better than anything I could have captured!).  Hannah looked gorgeous, Keir was hilarious as ever and the whole wedding was a lovely affair.  Keir and Hannah have been friends of Matthew's for a long time, so it was lovely to have the chance to share their special day with them.

 Laura and James.  James is a uni friend of Matthew's who we see quite a bit in town for football watching and beer drinking, but this was the first time I'd met Laura.  She is so funny!

 Matthew and me at the reception.  Hannah's colours were teal and fuschia - gorgeous!

 A snap from the train of the view at Berwick-Upon-Tweed.  One of my favourite views on the East Coast (the other being Durham).
 The giraffes outside the Omni centre in Edinburgh are the perfect place to meet up with someone!
 Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens.
 Love this lot!  As well as meeting up with Jenna and her husband Chris in Edinburgh, I also got to see her brother Ross and his girlfriend Emma, and Jenna's parents too.  We also met up with Burton, so it felt a little bit like a Texas wedidng of 08 reunion!
 Love this girl so much.

 Jenna's folks in the pub.

 It was great to catch up with Matthew's family too.  As well as spending lots of time with his parents we also got to see his brother Nick and sister-in-law, Elly.  Elly is a riot - she and I had lots of chats about houses and moving and all that jazz.
The Angel of the North.  A sure sign you're heading home.
