Robert and Susan Spooner

What more could one ask for than to see those we love happy and healthy? My friend, Sue, is from Vancouver, but has been living in Nairobi for the last two years. It was there that she and Robert met and fell in love. And it was at yesterday's wedding on the Sunshine Coast that guests were given an opportunity to see these two seal the deal. Set at her parent's ocean front house, the weather could not have been any more perfect, nor the 65 attending family and friends any more jovial. What a privilege it was to witness and to celebrate two such fine people tie the knot and begin their new life together as 'Mr & Mrs. Spooner'.

As noted by one of yesterday's guest speakers "Sue touches everyone that knows her." During her years in Vancouver she inspired me a great deal, encouraging me not just to explore the world of food I love so much, but also challenging me to do so in bold and unconventional ways. It was she who created the starting point for my blog's voice, coining the phrase "Global Peasant- A Journey of Culinary Respect". It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

Heaps of love and blessings to Sue and Robert! xoxoxox
