Even if I haven't exactly been 'living it large' here at Nicole's House as of late; I've certainly been having some 'fun' even though I have been busy with moving furniture and shifting plant pots while packing away the toys and putting the cherished family photographs into temporary storage. And the reason for this interior upheaval?
"There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why." ~ William Barclay On this day, May 19 in 1959, Nicole was born in Germany and on what would have been her 60th birthday - I'm going to enjoy a HUGE slice of cake…
"I just want to say that it the happiest day of my life, it really was. And everybody said it would be and it was." With an arm firmly around the waist of her adoring husband and as she gazes up at his handsome face; Nicole talks about the ‘happiest day of my life’ to the videographer on the eve of her wedding day and perhaps if history had taken her and her spouse along a different path; February 2 2018 could have been the 33rd year of her union to one Orenthal James Simpson. Alas, their union as man and wife lasted a mere seven years and all that remains to us of that fateful day in 1985 are the poignant images of the happy couple and that unanswered question - how could it have all gone so terribly wrong?
However, yesterday was also Nicole's birthday and if she were still with us - she would have been celebrating her 59th year... And having shared a lovely image of her on the Facebook page, I lit a candle in her memory and enjoyed a rather large slice of delicious cake!
