I Do!


At about this time, 17 years ago, I was having my make up done and hair touched up for one of the most exciting days of my life ...



In a shady corner beside a trickling waterfall in a park in Dalby, Scott and I exchanged our wedding vows on a gorgeous spring day, September 19th, 1992.



I walked down the 'isle' to Brian Adams' song "Everything I do, I do it for you", after arriving in an open, horse-drawn carriage/dray. And after a very simple (and a little teary!) ceremony, we headed off to the reception via horse-drawn vehicle again.



The waistlines and the number of grey hairs (Scott, not me - yet!) may have grown over the 17 years, but so has the foundation of friendship and love on which our marriage is built, so all in all - I wouldn't change a thing! Well, OK, maybe I'd prefer my waistline to be more like these photos, but other than that...!! :0)



He's my best friend, confidante, cheer squad, lover, changer-of-lightbulbs, tech-support, handy-man, shopping-trip-pack-horse ... my husband!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, SWEETIE!!

Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
KRIS

I remember that day...you do of course realise that if you're not careful, all of us will start living vicariously through you two!!

Either that, or wind up addicted to Twilight novels...!

Much love to u both, have a great day!!
