Another year, another review. Getting married, moving, changes at work, lifestyle changes, 2017 wanted to throw it all at me. Clearly, there was no challenge I couldn’t get through.
Nicholas doesn’t need a lot of words. Finding cloud ninety-three (part II) is a retelling of how I came to realise he was the love of my life. I could write so much about him, and I know that unlike our previous experiences, our love began and grew mutually, and we didn’t just try our hand at a relationship, but we both fell in love with each other. From thinking the same thing to having a thousand trivial things in common, and understanding each other’s metaphors and having our special things – I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else. The poem Forever sunshine was (one of many poems) written for him.
A brief summary about our wedding day.
Tomorrow, Nicholas and I will be Mr and Mrs Cooke.
We have a new home.
After visiting Perth for the first time last October and again in January, I’m here again. Nick had wanted to make use of a good deal/discount for the new Tribe Hotel and we decided to use it over a long weekend. But I didn’t want to go to Perth just for three days so I decided to extend my stay and work remotely from Perth again for a week or two (I chose two). We did spend the weekend together, which was really lovely ❤️
Over the Easter weekend, Nick and I travelled to the sunny Australian state of Queensland and did a bit of a road trip to visit some members of his family, and then we spent a couple of days on the Gold Coast.
When we had to visit a town way out of the way to hopefully find our wedding photographer, we wondered if there were any lovely cafes around that would have enjoyable food. We found Post Box Cafe, a gem in the southern suburbs of Sydney!
I’m hosting Timeless Thoughts this month, and I recall a memory from a company I used to work at.
I went on my first cruise over the weekend and share my thoughts as well as a few photos.
Nick and I visited Rottnest Island, off the coast of Perth. The only way to get around the island is to drive or ride a bike, so we hired bikes!
