“Life is better with company. Everybody needs a co-pilot.”

Last week, we celebrated our second wedding anniversary and once again, I was caught by surprise at how quickly time flies! In my head, it stills feels like we stood at the altar exchanging rings and vows just the other day, but nope…..we’re officially into our third year as husband and wife.

So, I could gush about all the wonderful, exciting and fun times we’ve had together on this journey we called married life – but I’ll spare you all from all the ‘lovey dovey’ stuff! Well, I’m not that kind of person anyway, so you’re lucky! :) In fact, what I will share is how I got locked in, in my own home, on the day of our anniversary…..and the one day I needed to be out for a couple of meetings, all thanks to my darling husband who set off to work with my set of keys without any inkling of what he had done. I soon learnt that he had not just taken my set, but the spare set of keys too.

And there I was, hours earlier, reminiscing about our beautiful wedding day, thinking how lucky I am to have married the boy……..well then, as you can imagine, that was short-lived soon after that debacle! :)

But hey, despite the initial frustrations that day, it’s turned out to be quite the priceless story which we’ll be sure to remember in the years to come (i.e. I won’t let him forget it! *grin*) and thankfully, I made it out for our dinner date later that evening, so the damage was somewhat undone! ;)

So yeah, life sure is better with company, even with its highs and lows…..and if you have co-pilots like my one, then you’ll NEVER have a dull day!

Here’s to many more fun (and frustrating) years together, husband :D xxxxxx

Back from Paris today and I miss it already! We’ve had an amazing four days of walking, cycling, eating and drinking our way through the city (mostly the North) which I will share with you on here over the next week or so – judging by the number of photos taken, it may have to be over a few posts! So, in the meantime I bid you all a good night and I shall be back with more visual treats from Paris! Bon nuit!!! xx

This time last year…

Sorry I’ve been rather quiet on here this week but work has been crazy busy – both my day job and freelance work are at their peak not to mention the numerous other things to keep on top of which is definitely keeping me busy and well out of mischief! AND on top of that…we celebrated a significant milestone earlier in the week where we reached our 1st wedding anniversary! I know it’s only our 1st but my goodness has it flown by so quickly! I think we both found it quite surreal to think time last year we were saying our vows and celebrating the occasion the entire day (and weekend mind you!) with our dearest family and friends….and boy, when I think about it, I’d do it all over again! Well – if money wasn’t an issue! :D Anyway, it’s been an incredible adventure and I raise my glass to many more fun and exciting years with the hubby! I know life is never going to be a bed of roses but as long as you have that ‘someone’ by you through thick and thin…..then that’s all that matters! :)
