Yesterday Andy and I celebrated nine years as husband and wife.
Nine Years... who would have thought marriage would suit me so well.
I've posted this same picture on other anniversaries but that's OK, because it's one of my favourites.
Our wedding day was almost perfect for us; we were surrounded by our loved ones as we said I do. I adore that I'm wearing my cousin Jen's wedding head band and my best friend Catherine's watch. My earrings were borrowed too.
I was a laid back bride but then again, it was a laid back wedding.
A lot of people came a long way to help us celebrate that day.
Looking back I could say there would only be a few things I would have changed, such as hiring a professional photographer and wearing amazing brightly coloured shoes. But that was nine years ago and my tastes have changed. I could say I would have preferred to have had my hair done by a great stylist,but then again maybe I would have opted to do it myself. Besides it makes a funny story regarding how I opted to find a stylist who would curl my hair on the morning of. It was kind of fun walking around the town with my sisters and friends on a busy Saturday morning asking if anyone was free to do my hair. The looks on faces were priceless when they realised it was my wedding day and I hadn't booked anything. No big deal. It got done in the end and looked pretty a-OK.
Nine years have brought a lot of changes to our lives; Like my Mom said last night when we were chatting 'who would have thought you'd be grandparents to a nearly two year old child nine years on?'
Andy and I still continue to grow as a couple and although there are some thing's I'm sure we are always going to try and struggle to comprehend about the other, the love is most definitely still strong and the tie that binds us together.
It's a good life.
