Today is our 3 year wedding anniversary. 3 years ago we threw a giant party with our parents, got married, drank a lot of limoncello and had the best time with our friends and family, dancing, laughing and eating ice-cream.
As much as February 25th is a special date, Ben and I save our main anniversary celebration for August 29th. On that day in 2001, 16-year-old Ben texted 15-year-old Heidi, asking if she wanted to make it “official”. Yeah I did. That weekend we saw Planet of the Apes at Frankston cinema and held hands the entire time. I wore flared jeans and a Kookai jacket. Gosh we were so young! And here we are, 14.5 years later. Best friends, still holding hands and with slightly better taste in movies. So you see, our 3 year wedding anniversary is really our 14.5 year dating anniversary. Either way, there’s a lot to celebrate.
I recently updated the post I wrote about our wedding day (see here), with condensed sentiments and a few more pictures we recently discovered. We also stumbled across a bunch of photographs from the disposable cameras that were left on tables for people to use. They’re from the dinner onwards and feature a lot of smiles and a lot of dancing. I adore these candid gems. They’re pure love, starting with my smiling folks and ending with my husband and brother… what love.
Happy anniversary, sweets. 3 years is supposed to be the leather anniversary, but I didn’t think about that and instead bought you a pineapple. Let’s get married again.
