here comes the bride

December 5, 2018

Maybe it’s because I’ve watched too much This Is Us, and feel like Rebecca is both my friend and Mum, but I was really moved by Mandy Moore’s wedding photos this past week. She looked like a fairytale bride in that candyfloss pink Erdem frock. Her veil had a childlike nostalgia to it, in that it looked like something a little girl might fashion herself. And the baby’s breath laced through her hair, was so soft and romantic looking. Oh, mandy!

living doll

I bought my niece a matryoshka doll on the weekend, a classic gift that every child enjoys. My father’s wife grew up in Moscow, and I’m quite sure it was her parents who gave me mine. I can remember lining the dolls up on my mantle piece, from the largest, maybe 8 inches tall, to the tiniest, no larger than a lentil. The other day, as I opened each doll to find another inside, I was genuinely excited. It was the nostalgia, yes, but more than that, it was the surprise that I enjoyed so much. Just when I thought I’d reached the last doll, two more appeared! It make me think about possibility and discovery. The person within the person within the person, and so on. We’re all Matryoshka dolls!
