Happy Anniversary!

5 years ago today Michael and I got engaged.
For all of you who don't know we had spent a total of FOUR days together. Yes just 4 days together.
We met 6 months previously, I gave him my name and number, well he thought I did, I actually gave him a fake name and a fake number, a few weeks later I ran into him again at our favorite pub and I'd obviously had too much to drink (oops!) because after he asked me why he couldn't reach me on the wrong number I gave him my real number!

3 months later I get a text message from this guy I met at the pub one night and couldn't fob off, and from then on we spent every night talking on the phone for at least an hour sometimes more, don't ask me what we talked about considering we didn't even know each other, and we'd only met twice, but it was the most enjoyable part of my day.

He was working just outside of Cober Pedy so we decided to finally meet up in Adelaide 3 months after we had started talking. I booked my flights and we were off! I got there on a Friday, I was so nervous!

Tuesday was Melbourne cup day so off we went to the races, after a few drinks and some nice lunch there was a really cool band playing Michael gets up on stage with the band and proposes and out comes the ring!

Sneaky bugger had gotten to Adelaide before me and bought the ring! He was pretty confident things were going to go well. There was a reporter from the Adelaide Advertiser who did a story on us and we had this photo taken to go with the story

We look so happy and we were, we had two more day together then he was back to work and I was back to Orange. That was the first and last holiday we had together just us, 6 months later Jack was born, but that's a whole different story!

5 years later here we are happily married with 3 adorable little boys. Not many people would have thought we would have made it this far, and we've both lost friends because of it, but I guess we just knew that it was meant to be, I'm not saying that it hasn't been hard and we haven't had days when we thought we were being stupid jumping in so quick, but were very happy and hopefully our 10 year anniversay will be just as happy :o)


  1. I cant believe it had been that long. I remember telling you you were crazy to go. Doesn't seem like that long ago. Oh how things have changed since then.

  2. It doesn't feel like that long ago, but then again it feels like forever since we lived in Orchard Grove Rd!

  3. aww how special, happy anniversary :)

  4. Just beautiful - congratulations you two!!!
