It’s been a year since we said I do…
Well a year and a day, as I’m a day late with this post.. But that’s a side note.
Were now into our eleventh year as a couple, and one year into our marriage. One of the most regally asked questions is what does married life feel like, and if I’m totally honest it feels the same as before, just some how more secure. I know that might sound strange but this is the only way I can really describe it. Nothing in our relationship has changed. It’s just nice to know we have made this lifetime commitment to each other. And with that, we’re in our own special club, with only us two as members, its our very own special married club.
I absolutely love looking down and seeing my wedding ring on my finger, every time I see it, I get a warm happy feeling. It’s strange to think that before meeting Dave I never really wanted to get married, I just thought it wasn’t for me. Now its one of the best things I’ve ever done. Gosh, this is getting soppy! I’ll try keep it a mush free as possible as I’m not that kind of gal.
I always knew Dave was the one and after nearly eleven years together and getting married, it’s pretty safe to say he is my true love. I guess over the years our relationship grew and I grew with it, it changed my mind about marriage and how I felt about it. Then one day out of the blue Dave popped the question and I couldn’t of been happier.
A year on, things haven’t changed much, I still have the same surname and we still don’t have a joint bank account. These are things that may change in the future but for now, we are happy knowing we have made this committed to each other in front of all our loved ones. We have a whole lifetime to do the typical married admin bits..
To celebrate our big day, I’m sharing some of my favourite snaps for our wedding and a special illustration I created in celebration.
