I love grey.
Well hello. I always do this, do the layout in a rush and have it looking like… I don’t know. But anyway, I got sick of the fluid layout and I wanted something fixed, so I’m sorry if you have a resolution that’s a bit small. Just zoom out and you should be fine. I was telling James how hot this layout looked on his exceptionally large monitor. 😛
As promised this is the layout for the I Love Project. You can visit The “I Love” Project to see all the quotes that are on rotation above the sidebar. I am pretty proud of this layout, and I really do like the grey. Most of the layouts for my other websites were grey and I liked them very much. After the pink on my previous layout looked really gross after a while, I decided to play it safe.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a quote to go in the sidebar. You guys are awesome. ♥️ Please visit The “I Love” Project page because I am introducing another part to this project and I would like people to participate again. You basically write a blog post about what you love, or a poem, or some piece of writing, and link back to Heartdrops so I can share everyone’s stories.
I was away for a day or so, because my cousin (the bride) got married yesterday and we were all preparing for the wedding. All our relatives who have been visiting us also attended. For a few days they were at my aunt’s place instead of ours, so our house was a bit quiet for some time. I tried to make the most of it, of course. The night before the wedding we had to make sure we had everything because the next morning we were going to my aunt’s so that we could all get ready and attend the wedding ceremony together.
It was really beautiful. My other cousin – the brother of the bride – said, “I nearly cried… nah, joking.” 😆 My cousin seemed teary as she was saying her vows though. It was very sweet. On the other hand it got me thinking about the church setting and how I personally find it a bit dull and too serious. The priest had a friendly demeanour and a mild sense of humour, though. Everyone was taking photos throughout the ceremony and afterwards we all posed in front of the church for photos with the bridal party. Some people just scurried off for the refreshments.
When I went for the refreshments they were all gone. My cousin said that they went pretty quick. I managed to get some strawberry banana guava drink or something like that… some very exotic flavour. It was really awesome. 😁
I went with my cousin (the brother) to McDonald’s as we went to buy 25 cheeseburgers for everyone. He went to his old workplace as he was able to get a discount. (I was very naughty and ate two of those this morning.)
The reception was really enjoyable. It was a ten-course meal, which was really delicious, and included trout, prawns, vegetables, lobster, shark fin soup, red bean soup, and much more. The servings were small but all the same, really filled me up. I was very full by the end of the night. Of course there was a bit of dancing and conversing and some people drinking, and there was a band who did some pretty good covers of recent and classic songs.
I remember my brother and I being very hungry before the food arrived and while some of the speeches were going. We were eating the small jellybeans and chocolate pieces that were given to each guest as a gift. We ended up eating all the contents of our individual boxes. 😆
I stayed the night at my aunt’s place, so that’s why I wasn’t around to blog. 😛 Anyway, I have posted some photos on my photoblog so feel free to have a look… and let me know what you think of the layout as well. 🙂
