Actually I dont believe in destiny, all those silly clichés that state ‘everything happens for a reason’ you can keep them, all of them! I believe in perfect storms, good or bad, they happen as a result of the choices we make and the actions we take. This then is the story of the perfect storm that blew me into the path of Marc. It is our story about the day we met…

Our Story, A Date With Destiny
On the morning of June 28th, I awoke early, showered and dressed. Unknown and unnoticed by me I had put my t-shirt on inside out and wore it like that for most of the day!
The Saturday ahead was going to be a busy one. It was the day of my friend’s husbands 40th Birthday party. They lived on a farm and I was helping her decorate a beautiful old barn for a large barb-b-q and and disco, taking place later that day. During the weeks prior to this I had made metres and metres of assorted bunting, let me tell you that barn was huge, with extremely high rafters…
So wearing old jeans, my t-shirt inside out and no makeup, I packed up the bunting and drove to the farm
So wearing old jeans, my t-shirt inside out and no makeup, I packed up the bunting and drove to the farm. There was bunting to hang and balloons to inflate, I was excited. The morning passed quickly and people were coming and going delivering food, drink and equipment.
Around lunchtime, I needed to start hanging the bunting but, the rafters were incredibly high, so I claimed the nearest ladder and attempted to maneuver it into place. The farm was a working farm, so the ladder was very tall and incredibly heavy. I could only manage to put it in place with a long run up, it was actually too far from the wall, but I bravely started to climb…
The ladder was very heavy, I could only manage to put it in place with a long run up, it was actually too far from the wall, but I bravely started to climb…
At this point I heard someone enter the barn and gasp at my dangerous, ridiculously placed ladder. I turned to see a tall blue eyed stranger, standing in the dappled sunlight, laughing at me! Eleven years later the rest, as they say, is history, the date was 28|06|08…
Needless to say, I make him laugh all the time, but he does all the ladder climbing when its needed!

My leather bracelet was made to measure for my tiny wrist Marc’s leather bracelet is of course much bigger, you measure your wrist and pop in the measurement on the site. Then you can choose what you would like engraved perhaps even your initials?
