Last night, Olive, Wayne and I got to witness mum in her element and LOVED IT! Mum had an event to decorate and she KILLED IT! We are so proud of you mum! The event was Jamaican themed and also had to be a bit elegant, she’s been explaining her ideas to us over the past week and a half and even though we thought they were good ideas, I don’t think we could quite envision them the way she had, so when we saw them come to life last night we were blown away with the results. Ellen’s events (or so were calling it for now) is finally in business!!! #WatchThisSpace
I was photographing what mum had done so that we can create a portfolio for her and of course Olive & Wayne came along too,they were there for support as mum was feeling a bit nervous! Olive loves reggae so she was in her element, every once in a while between shots I would stop and have a dance with her as Wayne was all over the place checking out mum’s decor, tasting a jamaican coloured shot or 2, to give mum feedback of course 😉
A special moment for me last night was when Uncle Carey came and took Olive for a little bit, he was so amazed with her which reminded me of my childhood with him. He was reminding me of how I never wanted to let go of him, no one could take me away from him! When my mum suggested that I take Olive back to the room for a bit while we wait for her to finish up at the event, he replied “Take WHO away? NO, she’s staying with me, YOU can go” then took her for a walk around the event. That made me really happy.
It’s always such an amazing feeling knowing how loved O is, and no matter what happens to Wayne & I, O will always have a home to go to and be loved in, whether it’s with direct family or not!
