Magical Moments

 

The day was picture perfect, better than I could ever imagine. The highlights of the day was when I received the most beautiful heartwarming letter from my husband, when my mom and dad saw me for the first time and had tears in their eyes, when I heard our song for the first time "Droomvrou" just before walking down the isle, seeing all of the people that I love while walking down the isle and then looking into the face of my husband with tears running down his face.

These moments are so special that I will cherish forever.

The Honeymoon

 

My husband took me to the most beautiful, romantic and picture perfect place... The Maldives. Staying in one of the water bungalows with a Jacuzzi on deck.
We had the best time ever, swimming, tanning, catching fish ( a GT and shark), drinking cocktails and eating of course. One for the bucket list
