Anniversary Love


Last weekend we celebrated one year of marriage. It has been a challenging year, one in which we were pushed beyond where we believed our limits lay. And yet the year showed us just how strong we are when we stand together.

My husband not only looks after me and does the most amazing things like giving me massages and painting my toenails when I was heavily pregnant (earning him the title of "Angel" many times) but he also makes me laugh every day!

You know you're married to the one you love when your "arguments" take place with you sitting in the bath and your husband sitting on the bathroom floor, scoffing After Eight…

And you know you're married to your best friend when your wedding anniversary passes you by without you even thinking to blog about it because it just feels like you've been married for years, not just one (heck I don't even know what date we "officially" moved from "new acquaintances" to "friends" and then "friends" to "lovers" because it just happened).

That doesn't mean we didn't celebrate… my husband went out and bought me a new bag and hid a new smartphone in it for me to find. And I bought us tickets to go see Jimmy Carr next weekend on our first "date night" this year!

Of course, our greatest gift this year was this little man…


who looks so very much like his daddy and makes our hearts melt every single day!

This time last year we were looking forward to starting a family, but knew it might never happen. How very blessed we are and what better reason is there to forget about blogging about our anniversary!

    In reply to your question on my blog, cosleeping is going great. She usually comes in to bed with me around 4am (sometimes earlier) and we love it…sometimes my back gets a little stiff from not wanting to wake up DH or the baby by moving around (we are pretty squished in our queen size bed) but overall Abbey is much more rested than before which is great!

Don't be shy, join in and let us know what you think!
