T and I met at the CU freshers' barbecue after I'd been at university about four days. He was a second year post-grad student and we ended up going to the same church. We got to know each other more in the run up to a mission trip to Brazil which happened at the end of my first year.

Entirely ignoring the "rules" of the mission trip we got together after the first week and by the end of the trip Brazilians who didn't speak any English were using sign language to ask how long we'd been a couple. We were together a year before we got engaged, engaged for about another year and then married in August 2008.

Being married to my best friend is the best thing that could have come out of going to university. He always listens, makes me laugh, even when I'm feeling grumpy, is kind and thoughtful, eats everything I cook, and many more good things! We're both very lucky that we have such supportive families as well - they were really happy when we got engaged (and married) and their support and advice is so valuable. As are the dinners we get taken out for. Awesome.

I'm not a big music person but this song was our first dance at our wedding and I love it. You're going to have to click on the link because I don't know how to embed videos in my posts yet! We weren't going to have a first dance but this song was perfect for us so here it is: Feels Like Home.


  1. I went and listened to that song that you put up, and I really don't remember it being played as your first dance. I remember it being a song by an older male voice... but maybe that was your second dance... I'm probably wrong though to be fair, seeing as it was your wedding and you organised it!

  2. Haha, you were obviously too wrapped up in your bridesmaidly duties (doodies) to pay attention. We only had one dance, and I promise it was that song...!


Thanks for reading! What are you thinking?
