Two major events are happening on this auspicious day. Firstly, the opening ceremony of the Olympic games in Beijing, set for August 8, at 8pm, 8 minutes and 8 seconds. Talk about precision. Here are a few pictures that a friend sent me, taken during the preparation. Alas I didn't think I was going to be able to upload them all so I shared more photos with "miss byrd" (of byrd + bleeker) and you can view them here.

The second event, and more personal to me is the marriage of of my dear friend Rae Dunn. Rae made some awesome egg-shaped rocks for my wedding a year ago, and hand-stamped each guest's favourite word on them. I put each one in a little nest and they did look like eggs!

I was thrilled when she took the same idea for her own wedding. Have a lovely lovely wedding R + J!
