Today, exactly one year ago, we became the Storeys and so began the Storey of Our Life. I can hardly believe that it is an entire year later and the adventure we have been on so far. So, what happened this year in the life of the Storeys? Well, I thought you’d never ask!
1. We got married!
I can say without a doubt that the best day of my life was the day I married this man. One of the highlights of our wedding day was walking down the aisle, seeing all the faces of our dearest friends and family, and then looking ahead at him, holding back tears of joy!

2. We went on Balimoon
Bali = Paradise! We try to visit a new destination each time we travel but if I had even half the chance to go back, I’d grab it with both hands! More on the trip in an upcoming post!
3. I quit my job
In year one I acted on something I knew deep down all along – I wanted to be my own boss. Blame it on my millennial spirit, the creative fire that burns within, or even my sleepy head that hates getting out of bed in the mornings, all I knew is that I would lose my mind if I continued in a job I didn’t love. So, I quit my job and became a full time photographer!
And of course, we popped some champagne to celebrate!
4. Not Everything Was Easy
As always, you can’t have the good without the bad. In year one, we lost some friends, the most heartbreaking of course was losing my precious pup Sebastian, we said bon voyage to our best friends as they left for a contract in the UK, and we realised that no matter the chaos going on around us, we will always have each other. Steven’s shoulder is the best to cry on, and believe me, I did my fair share of that this year!
5. We started a Vlog!
6. We Traveled Locally
Dullstroom, Magaliesburg, Cape Town (a few times), Durban, Mozambique, St Lucia, The Kruger National Park.
It’s something we’ve been wanting to do for years and we decided what better time to start a new tradition than our first year of marriage? So what if we didn’t have a home big enough for us to host it? We took the party to our favourite restaurant, Salsa!
8. We moved into our very own home
We bought a house! I am so excited for the special memories and the in between moments we’ll share between these walls.
