As this post goes live at 1.30pm it will be exactly 7 years ago that I married my best friend.
7 years!!! It really doesn’t seem possible.
We’ve had to deal with quite a bit over this time but every hurdle just seems to make us stronger. Whatever life throws at us, we deal with it together.
Don’t get me wrong, there are times when he drives me potty (surely I’m not the only one who gets flustered each time I find bits of blooming strawberry jam in the peanut butter!) but thankfully these are very few and far between and to be fair, I’m sure I drive him just as mad. That’s all part of the fun though eh!
Married life was made for us. We still love going out and socialising but at the same time, we are more than happy to embrace the ‘old married couple’ routine of a Saturday night in with a DVD and a bag of Minstrels to share.
These past 7 years have just flown by – well they do talk about how quickly time passes when you’re having fun! With 3 house moves, huge life changes, 2 tours, countless excercises/courses and a new role about to start in October, they have been a mainly magical 84 months. There’s never a dull moment and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We seem to have crammed so much into this last year of marriage – Noel has been back from tour a year next week (how quickly has that gone!!) and we have used this past 12 months as a chance to make significant changes in both our lives and are feeling much happier (and healthier) as a result of this.
I am excited, hopeful and slightly apprehensive for the year ahead. We’re hoping this is going to be a year in which we finally manage to start the next part of our journey but I know that whatever happens, with Noel by my side, together we can deal with anything.
Happy Anniversary Noel.
