The first decade …

It was ten years ago today that I married my best friend.

A lot of things have changed since then … But the important things haven’t. We’re still the best of friends and struggle to remember a time when we weren’t.

Ours was not a fairytale beginning of ‘love at first sight’, we save the make believe stories for others … we instead live a ‘happily ever after’ reality each and every day.

    Awwwww… too beautiful for words!
    Happy anniversary to you both.

      Hi Teresa – Thank you! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years already – I suppose it’s true to say that time flies when you’re having fun … 🙂

  2. Kylie

    Awww, congrats! How cute were you?!

      Hi Kylie – Thank you! Haha … It’s funny that it feels like the wedding was just yesterday, and yet I seem so different in those photos! 🙂

      Hi Caf – Thanks for the anniversary wishes! I’m glad you like the photos from the wedding … we’ve been a bit slack in sharing them before.
      As for us being a ‘gorgeous’ couple … Awww, you always say such sweet things! 🙂

    Gorgeous photos (and bride and groom of course, could be straight out of a wedding magazine) – congratulations – I have another blog friend whose wedding anniversary is today and who blogged about it (what a coincidence). I got married a year before you and the last paragraph applies equally well (I knew him for years before we got married).

      Hi Gabrielle – Thanks so much for your kind words about our wedding photos and for your anniversary congratulations. It’s been a while since we’ve looked at the wedding photos to be honest, so it was lovely to have an excuse to share them! 🙂
      How funny that you have another blog friend with the same wedding anniversary … what are the chances?

      I wonder if anyone does actually have a ‘love at first sight’ moment … or whether it’s more of a myth? I like the path that we’ve both taken of knowing our partners for a while before embarking on that great voyage of marriage. How else would you know whether you’re compatible on ‘the big stuff’ like being in charge of remote controls and which way the toilet paper goes?? 😉

    Say, isn’t the 10 year anniversary the “Duck Anniversary?”

      Hi Dan – Thanks for your anniversary congrats! … Haha, I’m happy to see that you’ve still got ducks on the brain! 🙂

  6. Mel

    Many, many congratulations – wow, what stunning photos! You’re a gorgeous couple! xx

      Hi Mel – Thanks so much for your kind words about our wedding photos … it was certainly a fun day! 🙂

    May the ‘happily ever after’ be just that…

      Hi Caz – Awww … thanks so much. I still can’t quite believe that 10 years have gone by so very quickly!

  8. Erika Lee Sears

    Tracey! You are absolutely a gorgeous bride and congrats on a awesome marriage.

      Hi Erika – Thanks so much for your super sweet words (sometimes I get a bit self-conscious sharing my photos, so it’s lovely to have such wonderful encouragement!) 🙂
      … it’s incredible to think of how much time has gone by since our wedding day … but I’m sure you’d feel much the same way! 🙂
