Nothing beats that moment

I have clearly watched too many movies lately with gripping stories and love that makes you sob with happiness. Noah wrote ally 365 letters and I thought about how romantic that would be but my husband gives me 365 memories a year everyday is perfect in every way those little nit picking fits, those make up kisses, that bond that hurts when you are apart. Best friends that know each other completely and hide nothing, to know someone so raw and feel no vulnerability at all is incredible absolutely incredible. Whoever thought it was possible to love more than the day you said “I Do” I don’t understand why people are afraid of marriage you are already committed to each other, there is just something so sexy about being a Wife it gives you this confidence like no other I don’t even know how to explain it. It just feels amazing when he walks in our front door of our home walking towards his wife for a kiss hello nothing beats that moment every day…

Surprise Of The Year

Everyone knows I don’t do surprises I love to know all my presents at christmas and birthdays. Even when I give surprises I really want to tell them I always fear that I’ll give a bad surprise or bad present and they’ll have to fake liking it in front of me only to sell it on eBay later.

Well let me tell you it is totally possible to have a heart attack at 22! On Friday I was at home lucky to get a day off I called my parents to have a chat catch up on the week thats been so far see what they’re up to. They are very good at hiding things! talking about going to golf how sunny it is all the normal things you expect to hear afterwards I hang up and my brother texts me come over Im back from the mines come see your niece.. (sounds like a great idea right… WRONG I should have been on heart attack pills!) I rocked up within 20mins obviously an Auntie is keen for her cuddles with my niece, my brother sucks at hiding things he has the hugest smile on his face I instantly thought wow another baby? I’m going to be an Auntie again? WRONG BAM! my parents walk down the stairs in their pjs and say “Hi Steph” let me tell you shit hit the fan I immediately had no control of my eyes! they balled I sobbed like really sobbed I didn’t even want to let them go did that really just happen?? I honestly don’t think you understand that in my 22years no body not one person has been able to surprise me like that kudos to my family and husband for knowing for nearly 2-3weeks like wow to keep that in knowing how excited and happy and well the ugly cry face would come out I could not have done that so well!

I worked the weekend and came over Saturday night to have dinner and Dave kept rushing me to go and told me my brothers friends were coming as well naturally I think thats normal and I am all excited to see my parents again just to make sure it was still real and I wasn’t dreaming! I walk into their house again and go to the kitchen and BAM! my sister is standing there right there in the laundry hiding!! (seriously I’m thinking where the fuck are my heart attack pills) Two surprises!! Two! How lucky am I maybe I should have liked surprises all along? because man they were good. My sister and parents obviously don’t live up here so we really only see them couple times a year we are a close family so the fact that my brother flew them up here instead of me missing out on seeing them if they went down there seriously meant the world to me! He and my sister in law are seriously the most generous, big hearted people I know. They are always thinking of others and have constantly included me in their little family and made sure I don’t miss a moment with my niece and it means so much to me!! Family is everything you have nothing without them.

I have much resting to do today from my heart attack week staying at my brothers home I am so grateful for this week and for my family so Thank you all of you for including me and for my first ever surprises they were unreal bloody unreal!!

Your my wonderwall

To my dearest Dave,

I love our story the best because we get to share the best happy ending together. X

I love you bucket loads & more
Happy first wedding anniversary baby

Love Steph x

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
But I don’t know how

Because maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
But they’ll never throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you’re not to do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that lead you there were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don’t know how

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

Said maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me


















Mums Day

Mum is having her early Mother’s Day celebration today I wish I could be there with my dad, sister, niece and nephew to help make mums day super special just like her!

As I am growing older I can see myself having more of my mums qualities and well that amazing determination that my mum has always shown has well and truly kicked into drive over here!

I am so thankful that we share such a close bond in my family to my mum and dad we never hesitate to tell them everything maybe it’s because at one stage in our lives we were all a terrors and now we are always wanting to make it up to mum she deserves a billion good years to forgive the bad ones! I guess everyone goes through terrible 2’s, toddler outrages and horrible teenagers well most of us anyway! Something I never expected was getting super close to your parents and having so much in common with my mum!

She is still teaching me amazing life lessons and always there for me when I am down, sad, happy, excited she has never not been there for me and that is pure love. We always fight over who is favourite but she honestly has so much love to give us all that its so equal just the way it should be.

I hope you have an amazing day today mum celebrating your day! We love you so much and could never even wish for a better mum than you!!
