It must be love



It’s our 16th wedding anniversary today.

We have been together for 21 years, more than half my lifetime.

My dad married us in a simple wooden church in front of our friends, families and B our first born who nearly bought the house down when he realised the church was full of people he knew and began to point them out to his pop, who was busy being ministerial.

This is our song



It was playing as we walked down the aisle, J, B and me.


I carried daisies.




I thought I was in love when we married.... and I was ...in a way....a kind of one dimensional way.....It’s hard to be in love when you are still learning to love yourself. I am much more in love now than I was that day....and I’m pretty sure I now know what love is.....in a very multidimensional we have grown together kind of a way. We began with nothing and now we have everything. Each other, two awesome boys and a lifetime of shared experiences.

Well its nice to know that true love does exist! Such a beautiful bride you made and your photos have stood the test of time - so many people must look back and cringe at their dresses, but yours looks lovely.
What an interesting life you must lead - a Kiwi so far away from home in Cambodia. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment!

Happy Anniversary! That calls for a celebration :)

Congratulations! And I think I can relate to your words about love, how it starts and grows - although we are only up to 8 years. I feel that my husband and my relationship is so much stronger now - sometimes I think I must have been crazy to jump in and get married when we hadn't even known each other that long and I was so young, but I know now that it was the best decision I have ever made!

Wow, congrats! This is really something to celebrate. I will be home in Sg on the 20th Jan till mid-Feb. Will you still be around? If so, let's meet! I don't even have your number....
