Today is our 2nd anniversary. I seriously can’t believe that it has been 2 years since we said I Do! It only feels like yesterday that I was arguing with my mother about the type of wedding cake I wanted or what colour bridesmaid dresses we would have.
But then I think back about all the things that we have done since then and think, oh yeah, it really must have been two years ago!
Since getting married:
- Husband changed jobs (into a better one!)
- I have freelanced and gone back to being an employee
- I convinced hubby to let me keep a kitten I was fostering
- We rebuilt our deck and rendered our house
- We were adventurous (and that’s all I am saying about that!)
- We made new friends
- Learnt how to make pies
- Watched a lot of our friends have babies
- Watched even more get married
- Went on a 3 week holiday around the United States
- Drove a Lamborghini
- Went snorkeling in Haiti
- Went zip-lining in Jamaica
- Got pregnant and found out we are having a boy!!
- And we have learnt that we need to be happy and not just always making other people happy.
That last one was the hardest for me. With me just trying to make myself happy first, as long as it hasn’t effected (affected?)other people in a negative way. It has caused drama within my family because they feel that I have abandoned them, rather than seeing it as me spreading my wings and living my own life.
Hubby coped much better with this than I did, as he was already pretty independent of his family due to how he was brought up. He taught me how to put me first. Just let in an airplane, when the oxygen masks fall down, you need to put your own on first before you can help others.
I guess I just need to find a balance. ‘Suffer’ through a few family functions and then spend the rest of my time doing what I want, but I don’t have much of that time left, not with the baby due late June!!
I am so grateful for the past 2 years, and for the 5 years of dating before that, and the 2 years of friendship before that. My husband is my best friend, my lover and my rock. I can’t wait to celebrate the rest of our lives together.
Always & Forever,
Mrs T xxx
