The Seven Year Itch {Mummy Mondays}

seven year itch | wedding anniversary

Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our seven year wedding anniversary.

We didn’t have a romantic date, go to dinner alone or anything out of the ordinary. We went camping with the kids the night before and spent the day packing up and cleaning the house.

Yes we are thrilling people, I know. Well I did get some gorgeous flowers which are absolutely beautiful but it isn’t about the presents. When he asked me what I wanted for our anniversary, I replied ‘Another 7 years!’ because that is honestly what I want, I want to spend my life with him.

6 years ago!

When people heard that it was our seventh wedding anniversary, they instantly jump to the ‘seven year itch’. Yes I know a lot of couples suffer from it and it is devastating but nothing about our relationship says we are bored, lack love, or want something different.

We have been together since I was 15, that is a crazy 14 years together! 14 years of putting up with each others shit. Each others flaws. Each others strengths. And helping each other overcome obstacles. We are better together and couldn’t imagine life without the other. No hint of an ‘itch’ here.

We have been through tough times and overcome them. We have experienced greatness. We have enjoyed so much, including bringing four children into the world. We tackle things together as a team and as a result our love and respect for one another has only grown.

Here is to another seven years (at minimum)! Happy anniversary baby, I love you so so much.

How did you spend your weekend?

    Happy 7th Anniversary! A lovely wish for another 7 years too. We have never bothered with gifts either.

    Happy Wedding Anniversary to you both. Love the love. I wish you many more than 7 years ahead! We celebrated 45 years last January. No presents but we did have a casual family get together.

    Happy Anniversary! We recently had our 8 year anniversary and I told my husband I’d do another 8 years but not another 3 kids xx

    Congrats on 7 years. More than many these days. We head out every anniversary and spend a night or 2 away from the kids. It’s really important for our relationship. I’m into my 18th year of marriage now and doing OK.

    Congratulations! We usually just celebrate with a nice meal at home. Although, since starting the blog, I can usually manage to get an invite to an event or the theatre to co-incide with our anniversary. This year, it is a big charity event. It does mean a little work for me but I’ve decided as it is our 21st we are going to have a night away and leave the girls to fend for themselves.

    They say with the fast pace of life, that the 7 year itch comes much earlier these days so I think you guys are well and truly past that stage!!! Happy anniversary.

    Happy anniversary Kell! You’re so lucky to have found each other so young and to have created such a happy and loving family x
