The course of true love…

Friday, 5 July 2013

This time last year I was frantically preparing for one of the most important days of my life, our wedding. It’s been an incredible year for us – what with Jordan writing and passing his final exams, endless work pressures and our impending move all the way across the continent, we have not had a lot of time left for each other. I hope this doesn’t come across as negative (because it’s anything but) but it has not been an easy year. Then again, who ever said it would be? Marriage takes patience, understanding and sometimes your undivided attention – all of which are in short supply during periods of doubt and worry. But here we are one year later, going strong and as sappy as it sounds, I feel so incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful man in my life. So tomorrow we down tools and take the day off from worrying about shipping and selling the car, packing boxes and watching the savings dwindle. Tomorrow our day will consist of silly paper gifts, lazing in the sun (yes, I said sun) and then going out for a fancy schmancy meal. In short, we will be making time for each other.

  1. Happy anniversary, Meghan!! You two are a gorgeous couple, and will you permit me to rave a little bit about your stunning dress?? Wow! It's perfect and BEAUTIFUL. You guys look like movie stars. Congratulations on surviving the first year. You two are embarking on an amazing journey and I cannot wait to read all about your second year. Thank you for the honest retrospective about marriage, I know there are often tough parts people don't like to talk about! xoxo

  4. Oh! I'm so glad I'm doing my blog catch up today, and I got to wish you happy anniversary! Happy Anniversary! Oh hooray! I've been married a looooong time (nearly 20 years now), and I'm a big believer in the institution. We too have had some really, really rough years, but I always think that I'd want no one else by my side. Cheers to many more wonderful years and adventures ahead of you. XO

  5. Happy Anniversary. Someone said to me when I got married that being married is like learning to read a road map; at first it's quite difficult but over time it gets easier and easier as you learn to navigate the bumps and curves. It's so true. I've been hitched 17 years now and my map-reading skills are second to none ;-)
