15 years ago this happened:









Last week we thought we’d recreate one of the pictures to mark the event:

It has been quite the ride.

There hasn’t been the travel I dreamed of, or the overseas working scenario. There hasn’t been the financial freedom or security I thought I’d have and we’re certainly not living in the house I ever imagined for us.

Instead I have a partner who makes me laugh every day. A man who is not scared of my darkest of days, well, maybe he is scared but he doesn’t run away. A partner who will just hug me and tell me it will be OK. A husband who loves me no matter what.

And that, quite frankly, is better and bigger than anything I ever dreamed of.

FIFTEEN years. Wow.

    • It was so.much.fun. Organised in 10 weeks, just 50 of our closest family and friends, 16 weeks (or so) pregnant with Oscar. It was joyous.

  • Beautiful post Kim – gave me goosebumps.

    Happy Anniversary lovers!

  • How fabulous that the love that shone in those early pics is still beaming strongly. What a beautiful story – here’s to the next fifteen fabulous years.

  • Gorgeous! 16 weeks pregnant, hey? That means that you conceived Oscar at about the same time that Greg and I got together/started dating/whatever the current terminology for that is. There was something good in the water in mid ’97. Congrats to you two. xx

    How wonderful, you were glowing indeed and I see why! Love for your soul mate and love inside your belly.
    It’s a ride for everyone but when there is such love everything can be faced with strength because you’re not alone!

  • ‘A husband who loves me no matter what’. That certainly is bigger and better than many women can dream of and such a blessing, as is a strong relationship that can ride out the hairpin turns, the big dips and peaks, and provide laughs every day.

    Happy Anniversary Kim.

    Gorgeous pics Kim! I particularly love the photo where you are leaning back onto Chef laughing, while (I’m guessing ) he is giving his speech. So natural, just beautiful!

    • Funny story about that – Chef does NOT like public speaking and he stood up and it was SO BAD that I went, oh that’ll do and he sat STRAIGHT down. This was one of the 45 seconds he was standing up.

  • Beautiful – you, Chef and this post.
    You’re both lucky to have each other and that kind of love.
    Congratulations. xx

  • Laura

    Happy Anniversary you beautiful couple!
