Grateful.

This Saturday, as always, I am grateful for my Farmer Boy.

I am grateful for love.

I am a bit of a romantic. I believe there's someone out the for everyone. Some of us find our love earlier and some have to go on a bit of a journey to find them.

The first time I ever really remember meeting my Farmer Boy Bren we were at a dance party in the middle of the bush in about 1997. My sister and I were dressed up as Chuppa Chup (lolly pop) fairies. We were wearing enormous poufy tutus, tiaras, fairy wings, t'shirts that said insert coin and massive jars of Chuppa Chups we had fashioned into back packs on our backs. We were probably filthy too.

This gorgeous guy with long dreadlocks came up to us and sort looked at us all confused trying to work out how he could get himself a lolly and we ran away screaming about the best looking guy we had ever seen. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...

Luckily we met again a few days later at the prewedding party of a lovely mutual friend and the rest, as they say, is our history....and our present.

I know its mushy but I can't help myself today. I've had a bit of a difficult week and he's been with me the whole time, doing everything he can to help, look after and spoil me. He's my best friend, my team mate, my love.

Grateful doesn't even seem big enough to cover it.

Have a happy and loved up weekend folks.

ps. Thanks Em for the pic. XX

  7. Awwww, you guys are too sweet together! What a wonderful meeting as well! You can't say that would happen every day, can you?!

    My husband and my identical twin sister worked in the same building. She told me about this hot guy and told me to casually walk past and check him out. He happened to look up and see me as I was checking him out and I smiled awkwardly, poked my tongue out at him for some reason and then quickly kept walking, rather embarrassed! He did a bit of a double take then realised I must be Fiona's twin. He kept asking her for my phone number and then called me for a date. That was ten years ago! :)

  24. What a funny 'how I met my love' story Kate. I can just imagine you dressed as a Chuppa Chup fairy at a party - was it an Earthcore party? I might have been dancing right nearby, in my home made flares with big fake fur cuffs, and my vans!

    What a gorgeous photo of you together now!

  25. Look at you in your cardy & Bren in his beanie, you guys are my homespun heroes.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
