Gotta love age.

There is this saying “At age 20, we worry about what others think of us. At age 40, we don’t care what they think of us. At age 60, we discover they haven’t been thinking of us at all.”

I love Aunties and Uncles at weddings. They often tell me jokes, tell me something from their youth or a special story. They are warm and full of laughter, they know the bride or groom since a baby and have a wonderful connection to them. And they totally rock at a wedding. I had Aunties winning the second place by seconds at one of my favourite games I play. I had Uncles making paper planes and sending them through the reception room. Come with me to a summer wedding in Akaroa and the unique Mount Vernon Lodge, a wedding venue, nestled between a forest with views to Akaroa Bays…
