Two Years Ago…


Two years ago today I woke with massive butterflies in my tummy after a very restless and troubled nights sleep. The first thing I did was look out of the window and let out a sigh of relief, there was white snow on the ground and not a cloud in the sky- although it was December and absolutely freezing, the sun was still shining away. I stood staring out the window for a brief second, contemplating the day ahead. It wasn’t quiet for long, soon the room was awash with activity- chattering, giggling and lots and lots of happiness.

Fast forward a few hours and it was time. I stood waiting to make that journey with my Dad and he gave me a big hug and a kiss. The harpist started playing ‘Fields of Gold’ and we started walking.


It wasn’t a long way but it felt like an eternity- I was walking towards a new life as a Mrs. Little did I know then but a year and four days later we would no longer be a family of two but a family of three when our beautiful little girl was born on Christmas Eve. I was surrounded by all the people I loved most in the world but I still felt so nervous I hardly took a breath. But I power walked up the aisle and soon I was there and the nervousness evaporated when my wonderful soulmate held my hand.

We said our vows, and even in the ceremony there were a lot of tears and even more laughter- typical of us!


The day passed in a blur of happiness. I know that some people say that their special day could have been better or there were things they would have done differently but I can honestly say that I wouldn’t change a thing. I have written about our day before here but on this our second wedding anniversary I want to tell my wonderful husband who I know reads my blog (as he wrote a cheeky comment on my previous post about learning to cook!) how much I love him. He is truly an incredible husband who looks after me more than I could ever know. Since Mads came along he has been an incredible Daddy and there is nothing he wouldn’t do for his family. He makes me proud to call him ours.

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband- Thank you for being you. xx
