This weekend I will have been married for one whole year.
It seems like no time at all since I was standing in my wedding dress, listening to the strains of Bloc Party’s So Here We Are as I waited for my cue to walk down the aisle, bouncing about with excitement. I can’t listen to that song now without getting a huge grin on my face.
Our wedding was amazing, the best day I could have wished for. But since then married life has been even better.
Being married is not what I expected. We’ve been together for eleven years, and had been living together for quite a few when we got married. I didn’t expect to feel any different after the ceremony, but marriage has been a pleasant surprise. Maybe it’s the new name, but I do feel different, more grown up somehow.
I love sharing my husband’s name; we feel like a team, a proper little family.
So I just wanted to take the chance to write a few words to my husband, to say how happy I am that he’s in my life and how much it means to me that he supports me working so hard on this blog, even when it means I’m too busy to spend time with him, or stressing because the server has gone down again.
Getting married was the best choice we ever made – roll on anniversary number two!
