25 years (and counting)

In a friendship spanning 25,years, there are many twists and turns, times of laughter, times of sadness, times if heart ache, times of joy and wonder.

Tomorrow, in a friendship spanning 25 years ( and counting), I will celebrate with the beautiful Stephanie Lee as she marries her Prince Charming, Alex Russell.

For 25 years I have laughed with Steph, and her twin sister Alison, over every conceivable life event, from Girl Guides and group piano lessons in our tweens to dance moves in night clubs & check out chic etiquette in the late 90’s. As young adults laughed our way around the globe – London, the USA, Asia and Australia.

Hitting the big 30…our smiles continue along the lines of motherhood, marriage and sexy singledom.

For 25 years we have shared life’s burdens….the first experience of grief, the passing of a family pets, big life changers- personal health scares and crisis’ which make you question your chosen path. Throughout it all, Steph, Al and I have stuck together like glue…and there are’nt words to express my gratitude.

For 25 years we have shared life’s heart ache and heartbreak….a true measure of the friendship we share is that, no matter what life serves up…..we have stood by the other and weathered the storm together.

So it is a true honor to share in tomorrow’s joy, a wedding, where I will support my dear friend in my role as bridesmaid ( their is no bigger honor) , as Ms Steph Lee become Mrs Steph Russell.

Yes, 25 years of fabulous, heart string pulling, happy tear inducing friendship….with another page of our unique story to be written tomorrow….

Love is in the air, the sun is shining and the city of Sydney has her party dress on for what I term the wedding of 2014!!
