Recently Marie and I have joked that we should write a book with the above title. Whilst in the States we celebrated our one year anniversary. I have to say that we are both loving this thing called marriage. So we are now old pros and know all there is to know about love – kidding.

Life truly is “Better Together”. (Not to mention having someone to watch your bags at the airport when you “need to go”)


One nice thing about being from a big family is that there are lots of weddings to go home for! Jono and I had a really lovely time visiting my family in the States for a few weeks in July to celebrate my youngest sister’s wedding. She, of course, was a stunning bride and the ceremony was beautiful. I’m grateful that I was able to be a part of this special day in her life.

Jono and I made the most of the summer weather while we were home and enjoyed hanging out with friends, hiking, kayaking and biking in the most beautiful place on earth. Thanks to all the friends and family who went out of their way to make time to see us.  I was only sick one day on the trip and then again as we were traveling back; I expected much worse than that and was pleased that most of our plans went off without a hitch. But I’d like to say sorry again to my friends that got cancelled on on the day that I was sick.

We are looking forward to going back to the States in April for another of my sisters’ weddings, this time with Baby Miller in tow!

Coming back to chilly Sydney has had its ups and downs, but mostly it has been good to get back into a normal routine again.


July = USA. Hence no JAM last month but hopefully lots of pictures to show you where we went and what we did and who we saw. (You can always find more pictures on our website)

August = rugby, more rugby and preparing for a baby. I better mention that as I get older and have to slow down from rugby, I have taken up netball. I am playing an indoor version of mixed netball with colleagues from school.

Our new house feels like home. We love being here together. Even though it is small and cozy, we also love having visitors, so please hit us up if you have spare time or are just travelling through. My coffee maker is up and running (every morning about 6:30).


Beth Weldon, Lochie and Harrow for organizing our airport drop-offs and pick-ups.

Love from Jono and Marie
