This is just a short post to celebrate one of my favourite days of the year. Our anniversary. Today we can say that we have been each others person for ten years! At 8 Lee was my ‘love at first sight’. At 15 he was my high school sweetheart and at 27 he was the love of my life.
We met 20 years ago while our families were getting our brothers ready for an Easter Bonnet parade. Since then we have been firm friends. In the twenty years that i’ve known this lovely man I have been lucky enough to call him my friend. But for ten years of that i’ve been able to say he is my favourite person. I hope this is just the beginning.
I will always be grateful that we had a chance after uni to go our separate ways and see the world on our own but I’ll always be more grateful that we found each other again.
We are in Hong Kong at the moment (I will catch you up with our China adventure) and we love everything about this city. What better place to celebrate ten years with my partner in crime, travel buddy and sweet , sweet man.
Sorry for the sappy post everyone , but Happy 8th of April
Happy Birthday Lee – Lee
Today is your 30th birthday and we are (hopefully) somewhere in Guilin, China right now. We may not have the internet so I am actually writing this on my last day of work in Korea and setting it to post in the future….are there hover-boards there yet?
I already bore everyone with how much I adore you but I just wanted to tell you how lucky I am to have you in my life. You are my partner in crime, my silly best friend and my travel buddy.
To everyone else reading this, I apologies for the sappy post but our tiny bags have made me get inventive with ways to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to this man this year. Lee is the silent partner of this blog (as you may have noticed already) but he is the only reason it’s possible for me to write anything since he is the planner and organiser of almost all our travels, and the one who encourages me. Always helping me when I feel like a dope blabbing away on our little corner of the interwebs. He is also the un-willing photography subject not just on our trips but in our day to day life.
For those of you that know this crazy man, you will know how funny and full of life this British gentleman is. For those of you who don’t know him…if you mixed a rugby playing monkey with Disney’s Stitch and covered it in chocolate…you’d have Lee. I can’t quite believe we are both getting ready to leave our 20’s. We both set ourselves a scary task of doing as much as possible in the last few years of our twenties and so far we are on track. With just 3 years to spare we have crammed in a life in Asia, a whole lot of new lovely friends and are heading to a new home in Australia…hopefully we will be squeezing Canada into the mix soon.

Happy Birthday Lee. You really are the best part of me. Thank you for making everything easy, making me laugh daily and for never letting me feel un-loved. When we were young I always told you that you would do great things and you already have. We have navigated through many bumps in the road and I’m lucky to have you. I loved our childhood, I adored our twenties and I can’t wait to see what our thirties have in store…I’m guessing lots of food and dancing.

Happy Birthday Lee-Lee.
