Celebrating 6 Years Together

Untitled Untitled UntitledUntitled Untitled UntitledUntitled UntitledUntitled Untitled UntitledUntitled Untitled Untitled UntitledUntitled UntitledUntitled Untitled UntitledUntitled UntitledUntitled UntitledUntitled Untitled Untitled

Yesterday Andrew and I were very blessed to mark our 6th year anniversary as a couple. This year we didn't have much money to spend on celebrating and I was determined for us to have something a little more exciting than a movie date...so instead I created our own surprise romantic teepee retreat on our front deck! Andrew is in the final weeks of finishing up his degree, so I wanted him to be surprised when he got home from a hard day of work and to know how ridiculously proud I am of him!
I had so much fun transforming our deck into a vintage, 1970's inspired hideaway. I wanted to create something that summed up who we are, while keeping it simple-I just gathered beautiful bits and pieces from around our home and created them into something different!
I also kept our dinner summery and simple; yummy bits and pieces to pop on pull-apart bread and crackers, with our favourite beer and wine to celebrate!
We had such a lovely evening eating, sipping beverages, napping and reminiscing over the many memories that we have created in the past 6 years! The teepee was such a cosy hideaway that we tucked ourselves away for most of the evening from sunset, until the sky was jet black and scattered with stars.

And in getting as PDA as is possible on the internet- Andrew, this is for you...I can't think of anyone else more perfect that I could have shared the past 6 years of my life with. You are my anchor, comedian, intellectual equal, snuggle monster and best friend. You tolerate my stress, weirdness, creative chaos, the multiple broken cats I bring home, and you help me find my colouring pencils when I lose them. We are at such a massive turning point in our lives learning what it means to be 'real grown ups' (not that I ever think that will apply to us!) and I feel so excited and safe about this- because it's you. Thank you for being beautiful, wonderful, weird, you. So here is to so many, many, many, many, many, many more crazy, exciting, loving years to come. ♥

    I've been with my sweetheart for about 6 years as well but we don't celebrate our anniversary...neither of us actually wrote it down which makes it difficult ;) Loving your set-up so much though. Looks like you had an amazing time!

  6. Sorry for such a late response to all of your comments everyone! I have been off spending quality time with family over the Christmas and new year period- But back into the swing of things now!

    @Harlow- How exciting you are celebrating your 6th anniversary too! I can't wait to hear about how you celebrate!

    @Vanessa- 6 years for you guys too?! 6 must be the lucky number! haha. I know, it is so hard to remember so many different dates isn't it?!

    @QueenLina- Thank you! the burnt orange, forest green and brown have become my favourite colour pallet this summer!

    @Authentic Alice- Thanks! I am actually craving winter so badly right now! toasty fires and snuggly sweaters would be a lovely addition to an indoor fort!!

    @Pastel Lens- That last photo is my fave! Andrew was so tired he completely conked out under the fairy lights- I was lucky enough to sneak a pic of him snoozing! haha

  31. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Your thought is excellent; the problem is one thing that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I am very blissful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something referring to this.

  33. I and also my pals were actually examining the nice helpful tips on your web page then unexpectedly I got an awful suspicion I never expressed respect to the web site owner for those secrets. These boys were certainly warmed to read through all of them and now have actually been taking advantage of those things. Appreciation for getting simply thoughtful and then for selecting variety of outstanding areas millions of individuals are really needing to know about. My personal honest regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier. marketing services
