Today is our One year Anniversary. Thank God it wasn't as hot last year as it was today! 43 degrees is not a nice temperature to get married in! But we braved the heat and headed up to Hahndorf (a small German settlement) for so lovely lunch. But alas, the heat overcame us and we retreated home to sit in the air conditioning and watch cheesy movies.
I can't believe it has already been one year! It has gone so quickly and I have loved every second of it! I love my husband so much and I can't wait to spend many many more years with him by my side.
Yesterday we had my sister in law's thirtieth birthday party. A Hawaiian Luau! So we all donned our tacky Hawaiian shirts and plastic flowers and lay around in the sun drinking coronas eating fresh hot sausages off the barbie and having huge water fights. A Perfect summers day!
I love Australia Day. Its all about friends, food and sun. And with this year's public holiday falling on a Wednesday (and so having to work the next day), I couldn't think of any better way of spending the day than sitting on a beach relaxing.
If i wasn't going to be an interior designer, I would have become a graphic designer, because typography makes me smile. It gives me that excited feeling of when you fall in love at first sight. I recently purchased these prints through Made by Girl
And I, myself am currently working on a couple of typography prints to give to my husband for our first wedding anniversary (paper). Check out Mary&Gabrielle blog for my current inspiration for the project!
The past few months have been quite hard. I think sometimes life gets to a point where you feel like everything is going wrong and you are forced to reset and start again, and as the same for many people, the New Year is my chance to reset and get back in control of my life and work towards a happier me.Jarrod and I met up with his family on the beach today. A perfect temperature and you could have mistaken Henley Beach for being a tropical island the water was so clear and blue. What a great start to the new year.
Now its not too often that I think a video is amazingly done, but this is incredible. I could imagine doing something like this for a music video or even a Save the Date or Thank you Video for a wedding. Its all done in stop motion. Have a look and watch the whole thing because, its just Great! Thank you Fort&Field for sharing...
I adore this signing table. I have always loved earthy weddings - timbers, hessian, terracotta pots, twine, ferns, moss, black boards, brown paper and vegetables. If I could get married all over again this would be my main inspiration image and the location where this wedding took place would be perfect. Down at the bottom of the garden with the fairies... view more of this quirky wedding here
Yep, 8 months in and Jarrod's already lost his wedding ring. I told him, 'if you keep taking it off you'll lose it!"....and he did....Men! HA! When I lost my ring in the car once I was freaking out trying to frantically find it, and although I know he is really cut up about it but it doesnt seem to phase him as much as I thought it would. Is it just a man thing? That wedding rings are just rings? I know some married men who don't wear their wedding rings, some because they work as labourers and some because it feels weird. How do you feel about your man wearing a wedding ring?
