The one where it’s been 4 years

Four years ago today was one of the happiest days of my life (the other two being the births of my babies!) – I married my lovely husband! It’s strange to think that it’s been four years as in many ways it feels like only yesterday that I married him but in ways it feels like we’ve been married for so much longer. We met when I was only 17. I’m 30 this year so we have literally grown and changed with one another. I can definitely say we are not the same people that we were when we first started dating. We have been through so much together – mainly good stuff, but some bad. We’ve travelled the world together and discovered so much that have made us in to the people we are today. We have many stories to tell our children when they are older. He is my rock and my best friend. He supports me though everything and makes me feel secure. He keeps me grounded. Four years of marriage has seen us have two houses, two children and thousand upon thousands of happy memories. I genuinely couldn’t ask for a better husband and father to my children. Here’s to many more happy years together! Happy wedding anniversary hubby!

Me and mine (January 2016)

I am so excited to be apart of the me and mine project this year as I absolutely love the idea of taking the time out to take a picture of my family all together. It’s something that doesn’t happen very often as, although I take lots of photos, I’m very rarely in them due to being behind the camera!

It’s such a lovely project to look back on and see what we were doing or loving that particular month.

January, I think, has been such a long gloomy month. The weather has been awful and has seen us spend more time than usual squirreled away in the house. Although I must admit, with the hustle and bustle of December it has been nice to have a few restful lazy days to recuperate. Although it has been a long and gloomy month January has seen us through potty training and nursery placements so it has been a busy month in that sense.

This months photo of us was taken last week when the snow was with us. (I was trying to take a photo of us this week but I’ve been too busy!) but it was quite nice to capture the weather and us all being wrapped up outside. It probably isn’t the best photo I’ve ever taken but the wind and snow was against us plus I had to be quick and take it in one shot as D wasn’t particularly impressed about being out in the cold! But some times in life things are less than perfect and sometimes you have only one shot to nail it. I think I strive to much for perfection and perhaps need to take a step back and realise that being perfect isn’t always possible and the end outcome is still as beautiful.
