MARRIAGE: Our 1 year anniversary

One year tomorrow I woke up as someones fiancee and went to sleep someones wife. My husband and I got married this time last year, surrounded by friends and family. I absolutely loved planning our wedding, a lot of which I documented on here, but by the time our wedding arrived I was ready to not worry/stress/plan it anymore!
It felt like it was eating our money away and with the last minute cancellation of our caterers we had many a sleepless night trying to sort things out. Now, a year on, I look back at that whole time so fondly. We created the perfect wedding day for us, from the tipi to the food to the company to the decorations - it was all we had ever dreamt of and more. 

Let's reminisce together...
Since getting married we have had a crazily busy year, which kind of makes our wedding seem even longer than a year ago! Almost straight after our honeymoon we found the house of our dreams, made and offer and luckily it was accepted. Fast forward 3 months and we moved into our house and started the massive restoration project. We planned to get the kitchen and bathroom done in one month, so that we could concentrate on the nursery and living room all before Isabella was born in April. Oh how naive of us, it's now 8 months since we moved in and we STILL haven't finished the kitchen or bathroom! Having said that the nursery is completely done, but we cheated a bit and got someone in. I'm really not bothered that things aren't finished yet, I have enjoyed the journey and it makes you appreciate things when you've not had them for a while. 

But the biggest, life changing event was the birth of our daughter on the 3rd April. I can't put into words how much our life has changed for the better. Everyday has a purpose, we witness daily changes in her and those smiles....well they melt our hearts. I feel so privileged to spend everyday with her. It's not all lovely, as any parent will tell you, there are hard times, really hard times, but the special moments make all those hard times worth it. The 'leaps' are the tough times, it's just so horrible seeing your baby cry and cry and not being able to do anything about  it, other than LOTS of cuddle. I feel like my excitement for life is revitalised, there are so many lovely things to look forward to....roll on the future as a happy family!

Feel free to leave me a comment :)
