At this moment eleven years ago I was lying back in a rose petal bath relaxing and looking forward to the afternoon when I would marry my lovely Michael. I can’t believe it has been eleven years already!
It has been a very eventful eleven years and I am so grateful that Michael and I have weathered it together! I think when we first met, and even when we got married, there were those who thought it would never last (my Mum got him to re-upholster everything in the house really quickly when we first started going out together because she was sure he was too quiet for me!) but I am happy to be proving them wrong! (and Mum is delighted to still have her own personal upholsterer ;-))
There are lots of wonderful things I could say about my lovely husband but as time goes by, the thing I am appreciating more and more is that I am always sure that Michael and I are on the same team. He doesn’t always agree with me, he doesn’t always understand me, but he is always, always on my side.
This was a really joyous moment – I loved coming out of the church holding my new husband’s hand and seeing everyone who loved us smiling and clapping!
Michael and I catching our breath (and looking just a little bit shell-shocked!) Good grief we were young!
Happy anniversary Michael – I was so happy and loved you so much on that day eleven years ago, but that was nothing compared to how happy and in love with you I am now!
