I wasn't the girl who dreamed of a great big wedding. Marriage to me was never a must and I believed in commitment without the certificate; yet I knew without a doubt that I wanted to marry this man. So I said yes.

If you're anything like me, you've been waiting for something as entertaining as Downton Abbey to come out, holding out but little hope. Alas, your tiny hope is not to be in vain!

Seek help and find kindness for yourselves and each other everyday as a top priority, not an afterthought. After the burning of the old, inevitably comes the shoots of new life. Give it time, give it plenty of the water of compassion.
