5th wedding anniversary

Today marks 5 years of marriage and 5th wedding anniversary for Mr C and myself. 5 whole years. We have actually been together for 12 years; I was 15 when we first decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend and it feels like a lifetime ago. (That makes me 27 years old now for those who are currently doing the maths.) I say it feels like a lifetime ago because so much has happened in those 12 years. We have moved nine times including an interstate move where we knew absolutely no one, had 3 feral beautiful children (still have them somewhere actually), we built a house and somewhere along the way we got married.

Today we are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary in style, the exact same way we have for the past 3 (maybe even 4) years. I will be at home with the kids and he will be at work. Doesn’t get much more romantic than that. To me it isn’t overly important to make a huge deal and go out for a lavish dinner on this one day as we always make time for one another, enjoy coffee dates a few times a week and show affection daily. We hold hands when we walk, we hug just because we want to, we never leave one another without a kiss and telling the other we love them. As a couple we have come together in the hard times and relished in the good, we have tolerated and grown to accept each annoying trait, learnt to love that flaw that makes them unique and appreciate how lucky we really are to have one another.

Mr C is caring, thoughtful and would go to the end of the world for me. He can be grouchy and a complete pain in the arse but he gives as good as he gets. He loves me completely, all of me and I, all of him. One of my absolute favourite things about Mr C is that he looks at me with lust, still after all these years. After having 3 kids and my body changing completely. He loves all of me. I am incredibly lucky to have him as my husband and this is the reason why going out for dinner on this one particular day isn’t important. We have everyday to love each other.

      Thanks Jody. So romantic hahaha. Ours isn’t so much about the kids but more that life doesn’t stop so we can have time to ourselves.

    Happy anniversary! Our 3rd anniversary is in a couple of weeks, I think we will actually go out for dinner this year as we didn’t last year and any excuse for some child-free time is a good excuse 😉

      Thank you so much Emma. Ohhh well enjoy your dinner and I agree any child free opportunities should be snatched up! Have fun 🙂

    Congratulations on your wedding anniversary! I just love cuddling, just because you want to. It’s so special and way more rewarding than a big stuffy dinner. Then again, lovely dinners are very nice too once in a while. xx

      haha yes dinners are definitely nice but if I had to choose a nice dinner once a year or cuddles all the time it’s a no brainer – the dinner! haha kidding, I’d take the hugs. xx
