Queen of the Moon, Queen of the Sun,
Queen of the heavens, Queen of the Stars,
Queen of the Waters, Queen of the Earth,
Bring to us the child of promise.
It is the Great Mother who gives birth to Him
It is the Lord of Life who is born again.

Welcome to my back door.........

Pop your coat on the chair....

Stay for a while........

Smell the roses

'Lets look at some older Wedding pictures'.............................

.......................Laughing with a friend.......................

Have I forgotten anything........

My Beloved Husband Adrian

Our wedding ten years ago...................the only thing working was the Aga...we chose it instead of a car,!! can you believe ha ha. You can see the house was a building site, no carpets, or curtains, nothing....but we had family, friends, laughter, joy, the magic of the Solstice, the smell of flowers and pine branches...
Today we still have these things, I would not swop them for all the brightest jewels in the world, and would wish you same.
Happy Christmas, God Jul, Joyeux Noel.
With Love
Lynn xxxx

Ragged Roses said...

Happy Happy Anniversary to you both, thank you so much for posting these photos Lynn, you look absolutely beautiful. I can quite understand the lure of an aga over a car too! The winter solstice is here, the days will be growing longer and Christmas is on the horizon (and if we all stop sniffing we'll be going to the burning of the clocks on the seafront this evening). Have a wonderful few festive days before the big one. Take care

What a stunning couple who guys make! The happiest of anniversaries to you both. And there was absolutely no contest re the Car vs. the AGA!! AGA wins every time!

Lynn thank you so much for sharing your life & your thoughts so lovingly through Sea Angels. It is truly a blessing to visit you & I always feel as though I'm sitting in the warmth of your kitchen with an old friend even though we are half a world away. Enjoy a blessed & peaceful Christmas with your beloved family & friends.

It all looks so beautifully cosy. I do hope you have the most beautiful Christmas which seems so possible in that fabulous house.

Henna said...

I love waking up in the mornings when the alarm won´t start its serenade..Peaceful, silent moments to enjoy before the day gets more lively.
We´ve had windy weather, our Christmas tree outdoors has a broken "foot" ...hubby dear will fix it so it stands beautiful again..
Dear friend...may you have a Happy Christmas!

Love and Yulehugs!

A thing of beauty is
a joy forever,
It's loveliness increases;
it shall never pass

An Aga instead of a car? I would have done the same! Happy Anniversary and have a blessed Christmas!

Katja - Bag End said...

Merry Christmas to you! Or like we say in Finnish, Hyvää Joulua!

Cowboys and Custard said...

Love is everything Lynn and an Aga was a very wise choice.. it is the heart of a warmth and constancy.. just like your wonderful marriage.
Wishing you a truly magical and memorable Christmas..
With much love
