Fifteen years!!


Fifteen years ago today, Symon and I were married!  We were young, in love and I was envious of Symon's long, flowing hair.

Boy have things changed a bit in those 15 years (including his hair length).. but our love is still strong, our friendship deeper, and our grocery bill just a tad larger.


So just for fun we decided to go back to the very same spot that we had some of our wedding photos taken at... although I forgot which pillar it was that we stood at - whoops!  The funny thing is (which we did not know at the time our wedding photos were taken) that if you read the sign above our heads, it was the old Whangarei Cemetary years ago!


Haha.  How very romantic.

I love you so much honey, and treasure every moment that we share.


Happy Anniversary!!

  7. Happy Anniversary! :)

    Your wedding photo is fabulous--I love the style you both had and still have today! You guys look exactly the same :) This was such a good idea bringing the family + dog back to the same spot, I'm definitely keeping this in mind when it's my turn. My husband and I will be celebrating 2 years this June and so far we've collected a puppy! :) I'm excited to add a few kids in the mix soon!

    Have a wonderful day with your hubs and thanks for sharing this with us!

    So hears to the happiest days of all! :)
