A Love Story...


 Five years ago today, I married the love of my life..

Our love story began on the 22nd of November 2003.  I was waitressing at the cafe on the Gold Coast and Ben worked as a barman in the functions centre downstairs.  At closing time, he was sent upstairs to help me pack up the outside tables. We quickly introduced ourselves and briefly chatted and he disappeared back downstairs. We only spoke for a few minutes but as I drove home that night, I couldn't stop thinking about him.

The rest, as they say is history.
Within a few weeks we began working together and within a month, we were inseparable.
 Within a year we were engaged and on a beautiful Spring afternoon two years later, we exchanged wedding vows.  It was perfect.

That day I walked down the isle to Gerocki by Lamb and it is these lyrics that best describe our eternal love story...

"Could we stay right here
Until the end of time
'Til the earth stops turning
Wanna love you 'til the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for.."

Much Love
