This time five years ago hubby and I were spending the night in a hotel near Gatwick Airport, recovering from the biggest event of our lives so far, our wedding the day before, and looking forward to jetting off on our wonderful honeymoon to Italy. So my Word of the Week has to be:
Actually the word has double significance as yesterday was not only our fifth wedding anniversary (wood apparently!) but it also saw me reach another slightly less important but none-the-less satisfying milestone, my six-month ‘blogiversary’. More on that another time though. Just to warn you, I may be about to get a little bit misty-eyed and emotional!
Our wedding day was simply amazing, spent celebrating just the way we wanted to with all our friends and family. By the end of it we both felt quite overwhelmed by the love and positivity that had surrounded the whole day. OK, so there had been the small hitch of the classic 1950’s car conking out on the way to the church! I ended up arriving late in the back of an old Ford Fiesta driven by a pair of unlikely heroes – two slightly scruffy but surprisingly helpful teenage lads! It might not have been ideal but it actually added a quirkiness to the day and we certainly didn’t let it spoil the mood. And we had the best party ever, in our opinion anyway!
I can remember it all so vividly but it also feels such a long time ago now. So much has happened over the last five years. We have so many happy memories, a few very difficult ones and, since Little Miss arrived two years ago, some truly amazing ones. My husband is a wonderful man, my best friend and a fantastic father. I really couldn’t ask for more. Here’s to the next five years and way, way beyond.
