11 years ago....
11 years ago, at the tender age of 23, I walked up the aisle of a church in Sheffield, South Yorkshire to say "I do" to the most wonderful man in the world. When we married we had only known each other 9 months and a lot of people said it wouldn't last. A lot of people thought I was marrying him because I needed an extension to my visa. A lot of people thought it was being hurried because I 'had a bun in the oven'. There was a sweepstake held in his office, amongst his closest work colleagues, for people to guess when we would be announcing the impending arrival of a little person.
We married on a beautiful May day. It started off extremely foggy but the sun was out in full force by 11 o'clock. We had a beautiful day. A day I will never ever forget. I promised myself, my life and my whole heart to my man and in return he promised his. What we both got was soooo much more than that.
So today, I want to officially tell the world about how much I love him. He does so much for me!! I'm not the world's best housewife and yet he puts up with that and tidies up after me. He does all his own ironing. He always goes way above and beyond the call of duty. He adores our children (and they adore him). He provides and protects and, most importantly, perseveres!! Even when I'm hormonal or just plain grumpy. But above all... he loves me, and he lets me know that every day in a million small ways.
For that I love him even more.
Thank you God, for sending me my perfect other half. You knew exactly what I needed and sent him my way. Amen.
Happy Anniversary my love!
