It’s 1999; the world’s population exceeds six billion and  we are all talking about the  year 2000’s impending problem known as Y2K: the millennium bug, some of us were even worried about it!

And, most importantly (to Us) – Brendan and I were married, on a very hot February day, this day, 18 years ago. Where has the time gone? Really!! It feels like the blink of an eye!

The featured image with this post is one of my all time favourites: It was taken in 2013 when Bren and I were in Sydney celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary. We were enjoying the calm before the storm that would come in June 2014, we just didn’t know it at the time.

There’s been some challenges since that photo was taken, but we’re still hangin in there, and still havin’ fun.

So it is Lovingly, and with all my heart I say a big Happy Anniversary to my go to guy –  what a ride it’s been so far…here’s to the next 18! Luv Ya!

Stay cool baby…it’s hot out there xx
