It was a big year for me too. I was in my first year of living in Melbourne, working at a small design company in Fitzroy, and studying Editing & Publishing part time. I was making new friends, living in Carlton, and feeling excited about life in general.
But the biggest day of 1989 for me was 15 July, the day I married The Hubster.
Twenty years ago today, I was in a Sorrento restaurant, wearing a creamy white Thai silk and satin dress and carrying a huge bunch of lillies, surrounded by family and friends and having a great time.
Happy memories, of which there have been many more - notably the birth of our three children - in the two decades since. Of course, there have been some low periods too, but we're so very fortunate that the happy stuff has outweighed the not-so-great.
And I still like my dress, even if it was the 1980s, the time style forgot.
