This weekend just past, marks my eleventh year living in Melbourne. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone and yet it feels like i have lived here forever.
I made the move when I was only seventeen. I had been seeing Mr S for a couple of months, we had been doing the long distance thing, travelling back and forth. How we met is a somewhat crazy story, which I think I'll leave for another day. I was young and in between jobs not sure exactly what I wanted to do, so decided to come down to Melbourne to see if I liked it... and I never looked back.
It was such a big move. I'm not even sure how I did it. When I think back it surprises me, the things I have done, gone through and over come. None of it would have been possible without Mr S, my gorgeous husband. It's as though fate brought us together, we have been through so much and it has only ever made us stronger and bought us closer together. I was meant to be here. And although it has been difficult being away from my family at times, and so very hard for them. I know it was the right move for me. I followed my heart and it has bought me more happiness than I could ever have imagined.
Here's to eleven more.
