When two becomes one

Now, if you are my age you might be picturing a certain Spice girls song – but this post isn’t really about them. No, not at all actually.


Last Saturday was my brothers wedding! And what a magical day it turned out to be. The weather was perfect, everyone looked lovely, the food was great and the entertainment – well let me talk about that later! Sorry about the washed out photo, I thought it was better than none and it has a kind of romantic old world feel to it I thought (paired with the fact I dont think my bro would want any photos of him posted on my blog heh).

My bro and his wife had asked me to do a reading on the day (which they gave me full creative control over) – they didn’t even ask to read what I had written before the ceremony. That is trust! Especially when you know me and what interesting thoughts could come out. It all turned out well though, and I got some very sweet comments from various guests about my reading.

It is hard to believe that they had been dating for 7 years, time sure does fly! So with that in mind it was a beautiful ceremony that captured them both perfectly. At the reception, after the speeches we were all surprised to be directed outside where there was a fire dancer! He was really good, he got everyone clapping and dancing and we were captivated (especially considering we’re in a drought and the grass around him was catching on fire now and then). Haha. He handled it all well though.

I was glad to be a part of such a special day in my brothers life and happy to welcome a new sister-in-law to the family.

It was a big week for me, as a few days before that I also handed my notice in at work! 5 weeks to go!!!


My last page of chapter 26.

I mentioned to a friend recently that you know you're getting older when you start saying thankyou when people say you look a lot younger than you really are. When I was in my early twenties and people said I looked 16 it made me grimace. The other week someone said she thought I was 18 and I said thankyou. I guess now I'm fast approaching 27 that time has arrived for me. Today is my last day of being 26 and tomorrow begins a new chapter. The 27th chapter (or is it technically 28th?) in the book of my life is going to be wonderful!!  

I can vividly remember my 26th birthday as a few weeks earlier I had broken up with my ex boyfriend and also fallen out with two people who were at the time two of my best friends. I was pretty lost for a while but as with every hurdle and downward spiral in my life I got back up and came out of it stronger and wiser. Every situation has a lesson, some can be painful to learn but all are worthy. My other friends encouraged me to still go out, so about 7 of us had dinner at a little tibetan restaurant in northcote. It was lovely.

This year I dont have any of that drama going on – and I have the impending overseas adventure to look forward to. My brother's wedding is in 2 weeks and I still cant quite believe it. I'm sure it will be great though! My wedding reading is complete and I am happy with it, if all goes well I might share it later!

Have a great weekend!

p.s less than 8 weeks to go!
