None of us knew it at the time but, in March 2020, Ruth and Shaun had one of the last weddings in Ireland before the whole world seemed to lockdown and socially distance overnight. I’m really glad I got to be there for a day of warm celebrations and big hugs in Spring sunshine. Now I see all the little squeezes, the bear hugs, wiped tears, group dining, dance floor huddles and just the hanging out laughing, connecting with loved ones and I feel a mix of nostalgia and longing. I can’t wait for the return of these days and never taking a single moment of it for granted again.
