Soulmate



Nine years ago today, on Midsummer's Day, I married my man. It was a wonderful day, celebrated with close friends and family. By no means a whirlwind wedding, we'd already been together 8 years, we both knew we had found our soulmate.

I love this man, he's a wonderful, fun, caring and affectionate Dad to our 3 little men and works hard for us all, which allows me to be a stay at home Mum to our munchkins, something we both feel strongly about.

We are very different people but feel exactly the same about the things that matter.

I'm so glad that all those years ago, the guy reading Margaret Thatcher's memoirs, the man with the bright blue eyes, gorgeous arms and opinions on everything was the one who stood out and stole my heart :)

Thanks everyone! Emma, we met whilst we were uni students both working in McDonalds!!! G was reading Maggie's memoirs in the staff room while everyone else was smoking and goofing around, intrigued me :-) Not very romantic to meet in a burger joint I know! Van, thanks for the lovely compliment, the dress was new but in a vintage style, I still look back on the photos and love the dress which I'm really happy about :-)
