Just popping in quickly from my mum's place as our computer has quite literally blown up! We've had no computer for the past week and I'm not sure when it will be back either. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa was good to you all (we are still eating our way through lunches and dinners with family)!
Today we celebrated a friend's wedding which was a traditional Laotian ceremony. It was so beautiful and the colours were so stunning and vibrant. My husband's family is from Laos and we didn't have a traditional ceremony so it was interesting to see one today with all the traditions and rituals. I think my favourite was tying on a small piece of white cotton string to the bride's wrist to signify well wishes to the couple. You might be able to see them all tied on her wrist in the picture below....

Wishing you all a Happy New Year too!!! (just in case we don't get our computer back in time)
