A couple of important anniversaries

Last week was Pete and my 5th wedding anniversary.  I wrote a series of posts about our wedding on our first anniversary.  You won't be surprised that it was very simple and frugal and I didn't wear white!

A simple wedding in several parts - location, guest list and invitations, accommodation

A simple wedding part 2 - the dress and flowers

A simple wedding part 3 - the ceremony

A simple wedding part 4 - the reception

Also, our little Taz turns two in October.  We got her from the market in the first weekend of January 2014, and at the time she was 12 weeks old, which puts her birthday some time in October.  Its hard to believe this little furball has been with us such a short time.  When she first came home she had a habit of hiding under the bed, that lasted until she got too big to fit under there.  Lately she has developed a habit of lying ON the bed, but its just too cute to see her napping there.  

Training Taz and watching her grow up and mature has been a wonderful experience.  And I attribute the puppy box to saving my sanity when she was tiny.  Read about training little Taz here:

  4. Happy anniversary to you both. We had a birthday celebration this week and also celebrating the end of school life for my elder daughter.
    Those bed warmers are the nicest kind. Much better than electric blankets and hot water bottles.

  6. Happy anniversary and I hope you have many more happy ones! We also had a very frugal wedding but were a bit silly and had it at night which made it a bit difficult for guests from outside town to come to. If I had my time over again I would also consider a beach wedding as I love the beach.

  8. I do wish other young people would "take a leaf" from your book. The lavish and expensive weddings make me cringe, and I wonder if the couples really want all that fuss or is it something to do with pressure from others.
    Your wedding looks timeless and your beautiful dress hasn't dated at all in five years.
    Darling little Taz, what a beautiful face. She looks very pleased with herself on your bed.
