21 QUESTIONS | with Matt and I


I’m fairly confident the last time I checked in with a #relationship blog post, Matt had just let me know he was moving home after 2 years of long distance. If you want to read that one, click here.

Since then, we’ve been navigating all this couple stuff that we’ve never had to do before, living 15 million lightyears away.

So it’s about time for an update, and no better way to do that than 21 questions asked by you (via IG stories) and accompanied by the most beautiful photos of us taken by someone we both love to bits. We were lucky to be in Wanaka at the same time as Hannah, we all had a night free and a lil sense of adventure. Enjoy x

If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

KAS: Matt wrote his answer before me and now I wanna copy it. But IF there was an exception to the question, then right this moment I’d want to be cured of all my hayfever (lol), a billion dollars because tbh it would help with a lot of my other wish options AND 3 chances to rewind time.
