Holiday Greetings my dear friends and readers. Today I share with you a truly special day in my life. After years of beautiful friendship, adventures and blissful memories, I finally tied the knot with my beloved best friend and now partner in this journey called life.
We’ve come a long way since we first discovered our shared passion for the outdoors, nature and living life to the fullest. We’ve climbed several mountains together, set foot on countless islands and beaches, road tripped a thousand miles, explored new places… and there’s more to come.
Today we’re off on another road trip driving from Sydney all the way to the south of Australia. We will climb Mt. Kosciusko, the highest peak Down Under, camp in the Victorian Alps and spend our New Year in Melbourne. Not exactly your usual honeymoon, but we enjoy nature and outdoor activities – it keeps the fire burning for us.
For now I share with you a lovely poem that was read during our wedding ceremony and an excerpt video of our DIY wedding
“If you can love each other
Through the sunshine and the storm,
And keep the flame of true devotion
Glowing bright and warm;
If you can give each other room
To grow and change and learn,
Yet still hold one another close
In mutual concern;
If you can be both lovers
And the very best of friends,
And face together, hand in hand,
The challenges life sends….
If you can offer patience, comfort
And real understanding,
Encourage one another’s efforts,
Yet be undemanding;
If you can show true love and faith
In everything you do,
Then married life will surely hold
Much joy for both of you.”
