20 Years and counting!

On 2nd December my gorgeous husband and I celebrated 20 years of Bali!

After a very hectic week and an end of year dance concert to contend with (which is always a stressful time not matter how much we try not to make it stressful) Steve and I departed Perth on 22nd Nov for 12 glorious days in Bali.

We were delayed out of Perth by about 1 1/2 hours (always the way when you are anxious to be somewhere else!), but when we finally arrived at the Ulin Villas we were met with something like heaven.

It was everything and more than we expected - our very own Villa complete with pool, kitchen, breakfast prepared daily by our own chef, lounge dining and outdoor bathroom. Magic! You can see more here if you are interested - we really can't recommend the accommodation enough.

We swam....

We went sightseeing....

We ate and drank....

We re-connected and re-discovered why we married each other all those years pictures of this sorry!!!!

We celebrated...

On our last night we decided to have a BBQ meal prepared in the Villa and when I came home from dashing out to get some last minute shopping done I was greeted by this image and it truly took my breath away. They are Frangipanni flowers strategically placed around the grass area of the Villa - just stunning - we also had some woven decorations hung from the ceiling of the dining area too. Our feast was prepared and then we were left alone to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary and just relax. The day was perfect!

Our 12 days away were amazing, we felt like we had had a holiday. Our girls missed us terribly and we missed them very much too.

It was straight back to work for me as last night - I had a wedding to photograph - so I'll be back with some sneek peaks sometime next week of Kelly & Sam.

I have had so much time to think about so much whilst I was away that I now have a list of things I would like to achieve in the coming year, some of which are already underway and include a new blog and website so stay tuned for those.

My girls have their awards night on Monday night and we have had confirmation that they will both be receiving awards - what a great way to finish off a very successful year for us all.
