Our Anniversary

I can’t believe that this month we have already been married for 2 years.  This time 2 years ago, was the biggest and best day of our lives (up until that moment) and the day passed us by so quickly, I wish we could go back and live that day again, just you and me.  I would soak in every moment, everything; every glance, gaze, laugh smile, kiss, if I could live it again I would.  I can barely remember the look on your face now when I was walking down the aisle, but I can remember us both messing up our vows in exactly the same place (we were obviously meant to be!)

I love this photo of us

Grandpa kept treading on my dress!

Surrounded by our nearest and dearest

In the past 2 years our lives have changed so much, we have grown into ‘proper adults’.  We bought our first home, we have a mortgage now, I had a promotion to ward sister, you constantly worry about money and make spreadsheets of our finances, we went on our most amazing holiday – our honeymoon to Mexico, we bought an estate car, we’ve become parents, we have had a beautiful son, so we have to be responsible now!

We still have our childish ways, I catch you watching Pokemon on Netflix when I come home from a day out or when I’m upstairs putting Oliver to bed.  I still cuddle my Postman Pat teddy when I go to bed, even though I’m 25, and you hate him because he’s all scratchy!     You are still obsessed with your cars and I think your car cleaning habit has reached a new level of crazy in the past 2 years. I wouldn’t change it for the world though (as I do love having a clean car)!  My shopping ‘problem’ is getting better, even if you don’t think it is!

Christmas 2015, 2 months before the arrival of Oliver

Just over 18 months ago we planned, hoped and dreamed for a family.  We were very lucky and our wish came true very quickly, probably quicker than we planned when I fell pregnant straight away!  But this little baby was us turning our love into something even more special, a life.  This little life growing in my tummy helped my family through the sadness of losing my Grandpa, he gave us hope and something to look forward to.  That is why he has my Grandpa’s name as his middle name.  Grandpa would have loved to have met him, and I am so glad we were able to tell him we were having a baby before he passed away.

I could tell you were going to be a great father

It’s amazing to think this year we have spent a whole 10 years together. I would never have thought that that Stuart, who kept harassing me at school and made my best friend swap places with you in the school photo, just so you could stand next to me, would have been the man I married and started a family with.  You’re the boy who stood by me through my parents divorce, my nursing training, my dads sudden passing and offered me a shoulder to cry on, you know how I am feeling without words passing between us.  You’ve had hard times too, both your grandfathers passing away, having your dad move to France and your mum to Wales, and I have stood by you and supported you through these times.

About a month after we started dating!

You’re an amazing daddy, better than I could ever have imagined.  You dote on our little boy so much, you can see the love in your eyes everytime you look at him.  I love how excited you are to see him and hold him when you get in from a long day at work, and how he reciprocates your feelings.  I love that you can manage to get him to nap, when I have tried everything, how you take him downstairs in the mornings if he’s awake and I want a bit more sleep.  Your nappy disposing skills still need a bit of work (nappies go in the bin, not on the changing table!) but I suppose we can’t all be perfect! I love that you want to push the pram or wear him in the sling, you want to be involved in his life.  I love the way you’re always trying to better our lives together, and try your hardest to make our lives the best they can be.

Who knew how much your life can change in 2 years of marriage, but we still have a whole lifetime of life changing years ahead of us and we are just at the start of our journey together. I love you Stu.

(Now I need to come up with a suitable present, it’s cotton, and I’ve been told I’m not to spend much.  Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!!)

    Wow, 10 years together!!! It must really be a mind trip when you think back to yourself, ten years ago-if you had known what you know now. It truly sounds like you have found happiness, something that so many people search for their entire lives. So, congratulations on your second anniversary, I wish you so many more! ❀ PS. My husband is also notorious for leaving the diapers lying around ha #KCACOLS

    Aww, what a gorgeous post, and such a lovely tribute to the love you feel for your husband and family! You really have achieved a lot in the last of couple of years haven’t you! Your wedding photos are amazing-you both look so happy, and I totally get what you mean about wanting to go back and do it all again, and relive every second-I’d like to exactly the same thing! Congratulations on your anniversary, I have never bought anniversary specific presents (cotton/paper etc,) so I don’t think I have much advice there…!

    This is so beautiful! Congratulations! And wow you were young when you got married! I got my husband a cotton handkerchief for our anniversary with his initials handstitched on. He appreciated it, obviously that wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea! He got me a cotton flower which I still have in my bedroom! #sharingthebloglove

    Happy anniversary! There really is nothing like seeing your partner become a father is there? I think it’s one of the most amazing feelings – my heart wells up so often watching my two together! We were high school boyfriend and girlfriend too before splitting up and getting back together after uni – it always amazes me to think what the 14 year old me would think if I knew then that I would end up marrying him! Thanks so much for joining us again at #SharingtheBlogLove

    Aww congrats on your two year anniversary. What a lovely post. Children really are everything and I can see from the pictures just how much your Mr dotes on your little one. Good luck with the present hunting, perhaps some kind of personalised clothing might work? πŸ˜‰ Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays, lovely to have you join us. Emily

    This is so, so lovely! Happy Anniversary, guys! There really is something special about growing up together (it is the same for my hubby and I). I’m sorry to hear that you’ve both faced such difficult times, but (clichΓ©d as it sounds) it’s the hard times that bring you together and you know that you can fall back on each other. #SharingTheBlogLove

    So sweet. Love the photos, your wedding looked beautiful. Is leaving the nappies on the changing table a dad thing? Jack does that too!
    What did you end up getting for the cotton gift? We just had our third anniversary (fruit and flowers) and I got Jack a lime plant. He made me a pineapple out of champagne and ferrero rocher!
