petapledger My uncle Leli and my gorgeous aunty Tessie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend.

I have 4 aunties and 3 uncles on my mother's side, and although I love them all equally, my aunty Tessie is my favourite, she is also my Godmother.
My aunty showered me with love when I was a child, I can still hear her say "I LOVE YOU!" in her strong Maltese accent. When I was a rebellious teen, her love and her patience for me never faltered. As a young adult, she was there for me during a very difficult time in my life and when I became a parent, both my uncle and my aunty were only a telephone call away when I needed support. They have two children who are both awesome and a daughter who is a little angel that will always watch over us.
I wish them both good health and happiness, and I will always be grateful for everything they have done for me. 🇲🇹

petapledger Beautiful Kalliopi wearing her Peta Pledger 'Sally' dress (we modified the design slightly). Kalliopi and her partner Adam got married in Greece.
I am not Greek, but I have a lot of 'family' who are and having my friend wear one of my dresses in Greece has been a special honour.

petapledger I literally gasped when I saw this #ghostsign last week and today, I got a chance to snap it. I'm sorry that the photo is dark, but I am hoping to show the sign's true paint colours.

Isn't it a beauty!
