Thirteen and a half years ago the Hubby and I got together, I would like to say it was a story of Romance but we were young and it was more of a story of two people being the same but different and falling together in a weird twist of fate.
Ten Years ago today we were married – at this time on that day I would have been on my way, all dressed in white feeling like a princess. I was nervous, not nervous about getting married – I knew I was doing the right thing there. I was nervous about whether my loved ones had found the church, whether I would trip walking down the aisle and whether people would have a nice time. We have had loads of adventures over the years; we have been to new places together, experienced new things together and grown together. Now I am not saying it is has been easy, because it hasn’t (there have been easy times but some times quite the opposite too). I don’t think it is supposed to be easy though. If it is too easy then you don’t try and if there is no try then you have lost your drive!
“Nobody said it’s be easy, they just promised it would be worth it”
Some of my best moments through the years may seem simple to others; walking in the rain because we caught the wrong bus, dressing up as various things (the tube station ‘elephant and castle’ being a funny one) for parties, having silly sayings because they made us laugh but meant nothing to others. We have added to the family….twice! We have been blessed with two fantastic children who brighten our lives daily. A young man who is full of love and wants to bring justice to the world and our little lady who cares about anyone and always wants to make sure people are ok. We are having new adventures all the time and will continue with ‘firsts’ together, the children bring many firsts into our lives and we will continue to go to new places and do new things as we have done so far.
We have been through lots of good and some bad (not going to talk about the bad though as this is a happy post) – the trips we have taken, the change of jobs, moving house, fighting for schools and putting on a comic con are all things I am proud of.
