In celebration of the long-awaited arrival of summer (at last), we have invested our remaining cache of John Lewis vouchers in some outdoor furniture. It’s been six long years, but the husband and I will finally be able to soak up the last drops of sunshine on our very own balcony this evening.
And that has given me the opportunity to dive into my wedding chest to retrieve one of our most cherished gifts—a beautiful lantern from my sister and brother-in-law. I’ve been waiting to get this out all year so you can imagine my excitement as I lit the candle.
Unfortunately I have now discovered that it is actually possible to run out of tealights. Who knew?
Still—here is the most beautiful lantern in the world, lighting up our lives with its heartfelt message. It makes me so happy that I want to sing it from the rooftops. Although LoveRichCashPoor is not famed for its voice, so I’ll leave that part to Etta James….
My love has come along;
My lonely days are over;
And life is like a song.
Oh yeah yeah, at last;
The skies above are blue;
My heart was wrapped up in clover;
The night I looked at you.
And I found a dream that I could speak to;
A dream that I can call my own;
I found a thrill to press my cheek to;
A thrill that I have never known.
Oh yeah yeah and you smile, you smile;
Oh, and then the spell was cast;
And here we are in Heaven;
For you are mine at last.
May love light up your life on this sunny day. X
