"You Don't Buy a Kebab, You Rent It"

Words of wisdom from The Phoenix, my husband of one year.
Actually it's a year and one week since we got hitched.
It was a lovely spring afternoon in Melbourne where we shared our vows with sons number One, Two and Three, The Stylist and Miss Danni-Long-Legs.













Since that day, we have had more health scares and ups and downs than a crack whore on a bender.
But the kids are flourishing, The Phoenix has kicked some seriously screwy pain killers out of his medication regime, he's also lost about 13kg, which means his target joints have less strain on them and we understand each other a whole lot more.
We made plans to celebrate our first anniversary as husband and wife, but these were scuppered by intense fatigue.
Our health and well-being as individuals and a couple is far more important than marking an anniversary that could leave us even more exhausted and in need of precious recovery time.
We spent last weekend reminded of our remarkable ability to simply enjoy each other's company with talking, sleeping, laughing, sleeping, movies, sleeping, snogging, sleeping, tea, sleeping, eating and more sleeping.
It was blissful.
More pics of our big day out and other Melbourne adventures.
I'm linking to the Visible Monday hot wenches, I hope you've had a fabulous weekend:).
Big love,
Desiree xoxoxo

I've said it before and I'll say it again - hottest bride ever. The outfit kills me. Perhaps, when we get married next time (legally), you (and the stylist) can be my stylists. :D

Happy anniversary to you both.

I am so impressed that you wore seamed stockings on your wedding day, and your seams are perfectly straight!
Congratulations on your first year as husband and wife, and weathering the storm of health issues together. Your weekend sounds just fine to me, especially the sleeping ;)

Happy anniversary you two :)
I'd much rather spend the day snuggled up, canoodling & chilling than to make a big fuss. Your weekend sounds utterly perfect!
Lot's of love,

Happy Anniversary! My you have many, many more.

We never remember our anniversary! Suddenly it's Labor Day( sept 1) and we're going "Crap, forgot again" It's either aug 26 or 28 or maybe 25.It's not the wedding, the party , it's all the other days you're together.

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I want to leap around the office singing The Power Of Love (the Huey Lewis one of course). You looked stunning on your wedding day, just my kind of wedding too. Sending you lots of love for many more happy years xxxx

happy anniversary my dear, it's a huge achievement to kick out so many medications for his life, the less he takes the less consequences he'll have to deal it in later life, I understand you so well, our cabinets are so full of meds..there are more than everything else...more meds than food!!!

Oh my, what a stylish wedding. Your vintage lace dress is just exquisite and those sexy silk stockings - wow!. I'm such a believer in marriage. Every anniversary together is precious and to be celebrated, but so is your health and wellbeing. Health scares will come and go and it's very traumatic but it does make you appreciate what you have a whole lot more. Happy anniversary you guys (and many more) xxxxxxx

Katie said...

Great photos. My favorite is the whole family - Sons cracking up and everyone smiling. But the photo of the two of you on the bench is a close second :)
