One Year

It's funny how one year can go so quickly and at the same time it feels like so much time has passed. One year ago we were doing this, two years ago we were doing this, and twelve years ago we were sharing an awkward phone conversation and discovering that yes, we did quite like each other.

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary we went out for brunch to my favourite place in Brighton, and then in the evening we went for a picnic at Waimakariri Gorge. We brought along a basket full of food and our dog, who was super excited and spent most of the time jumping in the river then trying to run across the picnic blanket.

In between trying to stop the dog from ruining our new books (since it was our paper anniversary) and trying to catch grapes in our mouths, we spent ages playing around with the self-timer setting on the camera so I could get a photo for my anniversary photo project:

I'm looking forward to adding many, many more photos to our collection!


  1. Congratulations! Love the photos and the river is one of my favourite places.

  2. Thanks :) It was the first time I'd been out to a river in ages and I'd forgotten how nice it was. More picnics at rivers!
