What a day!

Yesterday, there was a lot of commotion in front of the flower shop where I work.
No, it wasn't a line up to buy flowers for Valentines day (although that did happen later!)...
Even the local t.v news station showed up...
Was there a celebrity in town?
Wrong again!
The excitement was building...
And then....
HERE COMES THE BRIDE!!
On Sunday, my boss Karen, proposed to Francis, her partner of 12 years and within 18 hours
the wedding was on!
Friends and family gathered,
giggling in the rain, 
for these two sweethearts to seal the deal.
Exchanging vows...
 Placing rings on fingers...
Kisses...kisses...kisses...
Smiles all around!!!
Here with daughter, Mina...
 ...and the boys, Ben and Peter...
 With the legal stuff out of the way...
The cheers rang out!

 So on a rainy Monday in February...
The skies were full of Joy!
The air was drenched in Love!
 CONGRATULATIONS KAREN AND FRANCIS!!!
