Hey Lu & Dan! Thank you sooooo much for taking extra special care of our house. It was such a pleasure to know you were able to enjoy it before your big day! I've been meaning to write but the last week was crazy busy with our big day. Which was just magic. Thank you for the little gifts of flowers and vases and the drinks. How very thoughtful of you both. They were of course put to great use! Wishing you both a very happy and long future together. Say hi to Sir Woofy and Emma for us please. We had the best time in Byron Bay! xxxxx
