Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

High Five to 10 Years with my Hunk a Spunk

Ohhh we look so young and innocent! This is Mick and I when we were 17 years old (we'd been dating for 2 years) up in Cairns after I had graduated from Year 12!


A wedding that we were both in, a fair few years later!!!


I was thinking about what I could say in a post to describe my partner and our relationship the other day, and I had to have a chuckle to myself...I thought the only way that I could approach this blog is with the words...isn't it funny.

Here goes...

Isn't it funny how your partner is the only person who can get away with;

  1. Telling you to change your attitude when you're in a foul mood (mind you, he may receive daggers and verbal abuse at the time, but it makes you think twice about how you're behaving!)
Possibly the FUNNEST photo of us on our engagement shoot!
  1. Tell you that you've put on a few kilos, in the most polite way "babe, perhaps you should start doing some sit ups haha" and not because he's being rude, but because he's probably sick of you stuffing your face with chocolate and then complaining about not fitting into your jeans after!!! 
Mick and I just chilling at a waterfall in Cambodia!
  1. Do a silly dance or crack a joke when you're really angry!!! Maybe it's just my partner, but he can somehow always turn my frown around!
Haha this photo cracks me up!!!
  1. Offer the other persons perspective or story when you are having a bitch feast because they know that as soon as you've got it off of your chest you will feel better and you'll be back being best friends the very next minute!!!
Us in Thailand!!!
  1. Scaring the bajeebers out of you when you sit on the couch together and a scary movie starts to get to a really tense part of the story and they tickle your spine, or jump or scream, just to get a reaction! (Okay so my partner doesn't get away with this he usually gets a 'mickkkkk in a high pitched voice followed by a slap haha!)
We've traveled the world together and had an absoloute ball!
  1. Constantly shit stirring and sometimes cross the line on sensitive topics, but you just give it back, move on and realise they are just trying to get a reaction!
A photo taken on our 7 year anniversary!
  1. Pinching your bum in public (let's face it, you wouldn't want anyone else too!)
Mick and I in Fiji!!!
  1. Start eyeing off your food before you have even finished and then proceeds to devour your "percieved leftovers"!
Jumping for joy on our engagement shoot!
  1. Fart on and dutch oven you with the most disgusting smelling flatulence and yet you still love them!
Celebrating on the night Mick proposed in Far North Queensland!
  1. Rubbing you up the wrong way, driving you nuts, making you sometimes ponder murder, but still fill you with love, respect, pride and joy!
The goobers that we are at our engagement party!
Happy 10 year anniversary to a man who has celebrated with me when I have achieved my highs and carried me on when I reached my lows!!!

He truly is my best friend and he always makes me laugh, chill out, take a step back and appreciate the simple things in life, and just how fortunate we are!!!

We seriously have so much fun together!
I wouldn't want to spend the rest of my life with anyone but him, even despite the things he can only get away with saying and doing!!!

Look after yourself and those around you,

Kirsty xxx
