3 years ago today, I married the man I hope to share the rest of my life with.. Today marks our 3rd Wedding Anniversary, a day that I look back on fondly and will treasure in my heart forever..
Growing up I always planned on getting married, but somewhere in my late teens/early twenties I decided marriage wasn't for me. I wasn't going to get married nor did it mean much more than a piece of paper to me.. But then in 2006 I met this wonderful man who changed my mind about marriage & proposed to me on the 28th April 2008.
We married on the 10th October 2009 in a beautiful little chapel amongst parklands. The day went without fault & I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day surrounded by our closest family & friends..
Our wedding was planned on a $5000 budget, yet If I was given double that to spend today, I wouldn't change a thing.. Mum & I made the church & reception decorations ourselves (which was so lovely to do together) we had a beautiful reception venue with a jukebox for entertainment (many people danced the day away) & both Hubby, myself and all 4 kids were decked out in our finery for the day.
We made it a real family day as we wanted the kids to feel a part of it all & special. They had such a lovely day & still speak about how much they loved it today! Our two youngest presented the rings to us, the celebrant put in a section for the kids to say & we held the reception over lunchtime so those with kids didn't have to worry about a late night..
We honeymooned in Montville in the QLD Sunshine Coast Hinterland in a treehouse cabin called the 'Love Shack' (I think of the B52's every time I hear the name!) for 3 nights & came back to collect the kids for the last leg of our honeymoon in Noosa for 4 nights.
Such a wonderful time to look back on!
Happy 3rd Anniversary to my wonderful husband ~ here's to many more happy years together xoxo
