23 Years

23 years ago today Jon and I were married in Highbury Chapel in Hillcrest, South Africa. February is the middle of summer in South Africa. It rained as I arrived at the church (I have a wonderful photo somewhere of me with my dress hitched up, and my brother in law holding an umbrella over my head as I headed into Church) and when we came out there was glorious sunshine. We look so much younger, lol!! I guess that's because we were!

With Jon's brother, Jerry, and his Mum.
Our marriage has had ups and downs; we've had three wonderful children; moved country a few times and lived in numerous house (I think at the last count it was 15). I gained a step daughter and we have a grandson too. I can't help but wonder what the next 23 years will bring ;o)
Happy Anniversary Jon, I love you!


  1. Oh, I'm the first to send "Congratulations" wishes to you and Jon. Enjoy your day; I certainly enjoyed the photos!

  2. That was such a lovely day and you looked absolutely beautiful. One never knows what the future holds on one's wedding day but you have weathered sunshine and storms and we are proud of you both.
    Happy Anniversary. xxx

  3. Many congratulations! I hope you and Jon have had a lovely day with your family.

  4. Congratulations!! :-) What lovely photos, thanks for sharing x Hope you had a lovely meal together!

  5. I hope you had a wonderful Anniversary :) I don't think you and Jon have changed much at all - neither has your Mom!!!

    Here's to the next 23 :)
