Eight Years Of Marriage

Sweet hearts by Paulova Ceramics

In the early hours of this morning, I woke up to rain falling softly outside my window, just as I did on the sixteenth of April eight years ago on the day Paul and I were married.  Only today, when our girls toddled hand in hand down to our bedroom with beaming smiles and good morning kisses, I was reminded of how much has happened in these past eight years and how blessed I am to have such a wonderful husband by my side...

Someone supportive with nothing but my best interests at heart.  Someone who 'weathers the storms of tough times' together with me as a team.  Someone with whom to share all of the precious moments that are experienced every day as parents to two little ones.

On this day eight years ago, I became a 'Mrs'... and I have been grateful every day since for the life we share and for all of the happy memories I know will be part of our family's journey in the coming years...
