twelfth wedding anniversary

Today is our twelfth wedding anniversary. Twelve years also means that we have been married for 1/3 of our lives. I find that to be incredible!

This anniversary is probably the one that we are least prepared for. We haven’t bought each other gifts. We are in the midst of having two bathrooms and a kitchen renovated. Our children are sick with colds. We have another baby. Geoffrey is working a lot and we are both just  t i r e d.

That said, I absolutely love this life that we have slowly carved out over the last decade or so. Although it is a busy season of life at the moment, I literally wouldn’t change a thing.

This weekend we will be going on our first vacation as a family of 5. So perhaps we can count that as a present?

Here’s to many more anniversaries!

eleventh anniversary

Yesterday we celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary.

As we are preparing to add another new life into our family, I can’t help but reflect on the early days of our relationship. Little did we know when we first started dating where our lives would lead us. In fact, we were planning on living very different lives. I was headed to Edinburgh, Scotland to undertake my Masters degree in Art History, and Geoffrey was finishing his last year of his BA at university.

We had planned on having a very new and very long distance relationship for the first year. However, I ended up not going, and that’s when we really began our lives together. We were quick to become engaged, buy our first place together (with the help of our parents), and then get married. Over the next 5 years, we travelled, worked hard, moved a few times, adopted a few animals, really got to know one another, and truly enjoyed just having one another.

These last 6 years have been all about our family. They’ve obviously been very different, but just as loving and enjoyable.

One never really knows how their life will turn out when they get married, and to me, that is just so fascinating. Hopefully it is for the better, and much comes from your marriage! But whether or not you choose to is completely up to you. I’m just thankful that I did, and we did together.

Happy anniversary, Geo. Pictures were taken by Oarsman Photography.

ninth anniversary

My darling husband. Nine years ago (on one warm morning) we eloped. It feels like a lifetime ago. So much has happened since then.

Nine years. Eight jobs. Seven moves. Six pets. Five properties. Four vehicles. Three pregnancies. Two children. One adventure.

Onwards and upwards, my love. Next year is a big one.

6th wedding anniversary

wedding anniversarySix years ago today, I married my husband Geoffrey. We ended up eloping. It was just us, three strangers, and our marriage commissioner. Five years later, we conceived Remy on this very day. So that’s pretty special, right? My husband and my daughter forever remain my two favourite gifts. 

You can relive our fifth wedding anniversary video here. Have a wonderful week!
