Ten years ago The Architect and I were on Castaway Island in Fiji with six members of our beloved family. Under black, threatening storm clouds we said "I do" and sealed the deal with a kiss and a sprint back into the resort. I loved our wedding. It was simple, easy and (relatively) stress-free. We celebrated with all our friends back at home when we returned and it was a fantastic night.
Our life together started twelve years ago and it was just the two of us. Totally loved up and drunk on the idea of each other, we did what we wanted, when we wanted. Drives down the Gold Coast for dinner were de rigeur throughout the working week. Travelling away on weekends was also a regular for us. But marriage as in most things in life, never stays the same. Next week will mark five years since our little Polynesian Princess entered the fray and two years since Little Warrior came thundering into the family. Dinners down the Goldie and weekends away are but a distant memory, replaced with bike rides to Southbank and take-away fish & chip dinners by the river. Sheer family bliss.
Over the years we've grown. Both as a couple and as individuals and luckily, we have grown together. I'm still as in love with him today as I was ten years ago.
I love you honey. Happy anniversary xxx
