Well, 7 years ago today I was getting married, to the man I hold dear... my heartbeat.
We married in a little stone chapel in a forest in Cape Town, with the beautiful Cape mountains as a backdrop.
Our reception was held at the Hout Bay Manor, which is a national monument... a lovely colonial styled building. We had a high tea and a first dance with Lonestar's 'Amazed by you'.
We then honeymooned at three different national parks, Addo Elephant, Tsitsikamma and Wilderness. It was a surprise for me... we popped in the car early in the morning, and he asked me to bend down and take out whatever was under the seat.. which I (being the dutiful wife already!haha) did!
It was a gorgeous book on wildlife in South Africa, and inside he had earmarked three pages... three of the national parks!!!! I asked him whether I should guess which one we were going to?? He replied that no, we were going to all three, and that I should guess in what order.
And that was the start of our big adventure!
We have been through a lot... emigrated, tried to become parents, travelled and much more these past 7 years... but through it all, we have held on tight to eachother and the Lord, and continue to grow closer each day.
