This post is a tad bittersweet for me. I have had a magical year (and a bit) running and writing for My Something Blue. This blog is so dear to my heart. It’s been my hobby, my inspiration, my passion and a very important stepping stone in me becoming, well… ‘me’ again. I started this page … More A Huge Happy Goodbye
Although this is a wedding blog, it was my birthday on Saturday, so this week we are veering slightly off topic. Birthdays can be funny little days, can’t they? You can only hear many jabs about how you are looking older and you’re a third of a century now (thank you, husband) before it gets … More Life Lessons From a 32 Year Old
Today is a monumental day for me, as I officially launch my business and website for Must. Love. Stories. I have that kind of heart-pounding, lump-in-your-throat nervousness that comes with taking a huge leap into the unknown, but am also so very excited to be starting this venture. As you probably have guessed by … More Must. Love. Stories.
I can barely believe I just wrote the words “So long, 2016”. This year has felt like a blur with such a crazy whirl of activity in my household – stress, challenges, achievements and the pure joy/frustration of chasing a cheeky toddler around while he effortlessly devours (and spreads the crumbs of) 20 Jatz biscuits … More So Long, 2016!
Hello from the other side of the world! My Something Blue will now be coming to you from Australian shores. So, apologies for the lack of blogs in the last couple of weeks/months, but moving internationally (with an 11 month old and traveling via Europe!) was more exhausting than I could have ever imagined. I’ve … More The Big Move

The sheer panic, terror and confusion that must have taken over the club. The utter waste of precious and valuable lives. The grief, disbelief and emptiness that their … More With Love to Orlando
Dearest curvy bride (or cuddly groom), You are getting married! Yay! I am writing this love letter to you to remind you of a few important things while you are preparing for one of the biggest days of your life. Firstly, only lose weight if it is something YOU want to do! I see so … More A Love Letter to the Curvy Bride…
This past weekend marked Mardis Gras in Sydney – a huge, fun, flamboyant celebration of the gay and lesbian community. I arrived in Australia myself today as I will be Matron of Honour in my best friend’s upcoming wedding. Thinking about these two events spurred me on to write this blog. I am quite vocal … More Seriously… It’s Time For Marriage Equality.
My name is Abby. I have been a bride three times in three different countries. My husband is German, I am Australian and we live in the United States. So, we got married in all three! Having three weddings is not for the faint of heart, but looking back on it, it was certainly a … More Welcome to My Something Blue
