MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Music from “The Notebook” soundtrack by Aaron Zigman

 

 

How beautiful is this music from the 2004 film, The Notebook starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, James Garner and Gena Rowlands? The score is by American composer Aaron Sigman.

Mr Luscious has added it to our music collection, and we’re playing it as he puts the Sunday night roast on. I hope you can enjoy it too.

Buy the DVD and soundtrack CD for more.

PERSONAL UPDATE: Living with infertility, embracing childlessness

 

Acceptance

I had a moment last night when I was wrapping a baby present for my niece, her husband and their new baby girl.

My niece is great, someone who will be a fabulous mother and has had her share of issues along the baby journey, so I don’t begrudge her this new family.

But it struck me that if our own baby had lived (due two months ago), we would have been receiving baby gifts right around now too, celebrating our own miracle, dealing with the first few weeks at home after the birth, making this massive transition.

The website thebusinesswomanmedia.com said is best with, “Internationally acclaimed barrister Amal Alamuddin marries an actor”. Nicely done, Amanda Rose and your businesswomanmedia team, nicely done.

So, our congratulations to actor/director George Clooney on marrying the exceptional human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin – you’ve done well for yourself, George, and we only hope that Amal doesn’t get stuck with too many “the wife of George Clooney” comments in the future and continues to be recognised for her own achievements.

We wish you both the very best for a fabulous partnership.

Keep scrolling down for photos from the wedding weekend and the hotel where the wedding itself took place…
