Happy Anniversary to Me.
And Mr C of course!
Today we celebrate 7 years of wedded bliss!
Ok, Bliss isn’t the right word.
Today we celebrate 7 years of loving each other, supporting each other, disagreeing, getting on each others nerves, laughing together, working on why we’re not getting on, getting on, talking, giving each other space (well as much as you can when you live together), feeling complete!
That’s a bit more like it.
Anniversaries are important to celebrate ’cause being married is bloody difficult!
It’s a little celebration that you’ve made it through another year without throwing the towel, ’cause don’t lie, you’ve thought about it or smothering your better half in his sleep ’cause he’s dumped his stinky socks in the middle of the living room floor AGAIN, and although he’s promised to pick them up AGAIN, they haven’t yet made it to the wash basket, AGAIN!!
I think if people were warned before they got married that at times things are going to be really hard and that you’re going to have to communicate and really work at things to sort them out, more marriages would last!
Luckily for me I’ve got myself a good one! I’m able to tell him he’s being a complete knob and he’ll take on board what i’m saying. I know I can be difficult at times too and although we might not agree with each other all of the time, we respect each other enough to not be dismissive and to admit that we both need to work at things and problems don’t just solely lay at the door of the other.
I still have no idea why we decided to get married. It didn’t change they way we felt about each other, it didn’t change the course of our lives, things wouldn’t have been different if we hadn’t got married.
It just felt right.
I’m glad we did.
Today I’ll remember our wedding day, how we smiled at each other when we said our vows, how everything came together, how everyone had a fantastic day, how the sun shone.
I’ll look back over the last 7 years happy, I’ll smile and I’ll feel a little smug.
‘Cause although sometimes it’s not been easy, it has been the best 7 years of my life and I honestly wouldn’t change a thing. The very very good times considerably outweigh the bad and I have laughed so much that I reckon I’ve added years to my life.
Here’s to continuing to grow old and grey together Mr C.
Happy Anniversary to Us.
