This blog post is my vent to the universe...
I am always a happy person. Everyone who knows me will tell you I am. I surround myself with happiness. With the things and people I love.
Sometimes though the stars just don't quite align...
My Alice in Wonderland inspired party was suppose to be a celebration of love and womanhood to share with my friends and the people I rely on. It was my first ever child free event and I had the whole event planned and played out in my mind.
Unfortunately, the months of preparation, donations of decorations, the amount of food and alcohol went to waste...
Because there was no-one here to enjoy it.
I completely understand that things happen in other peoples lives which they cannot ignore. It doesn't change the fact that I hurt and am so sad.
I'll leave you with some of the photos from the preparations of the evening to enjoy.
My Alice in Wonderland book from 1981 and my personalised birthday badge by GemmaJoy in the Alice theme.
Carlos had the bar set up in the studio to serve cocktails of every kind. Bar fridge, drinks, glasses, blender, salt and sugar.
Lovely bunting donated by Rachelle after her daughters 1st Birthday Tea Party. Rachelle even printed out my name and 30th to replace her daughters.
A quick garage sale visit in the morning for Bear and I. We bought the last item on our cocktail list for $5. Very cool and very retro glass blender.
A very special puzzle book with beautiful illustrations Carlos picked up for Moo back when she was a baby from a treasure shop.
View from the studio outside.
Doily bunting and table set up along with a mannequin dressed in a black 'Alice' t-shirt wearing my brand new reclaimed satchel by Little Wise Owl.
I was sharing some lovely refashioned items on my facebook page which I was looking at buying myself for my birthday. Rebekah and Jazzy snapped the satchel up before I had time to buy it only I didn't know until I received it on Friday. Yes I cried when the postie handed the parcel to me...
Carlos made Brenda and I frozen strawberry margaritas.
Brenda called around earlier in the day with her family to finish of my cake she made and to spend some quality time with me. I have a few new personalised Gemmajoy brooches to add to my collection including a sewing machine... I love it so much girls!!
The cake Brenda made just for me *tear* Brenda girl I miss you so much!
She even made 'eat me' cookies... how sweet is she?!
So I leave this blog post in tears because I am so grateful for what I have. Carlos I love you and you truly are my lighthouse. Thank you for making everything better and not calling me a sooky baby...
Right now I could do with a hug...
