Gosh, can you believe it?
I’ve posted several times in a matter of days.
Well today is a special day….hubby and I are celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary which also happens to fall on my dads birthday. I have spent a lovely day with my girls and my parents having lunch out, then home for my mums famous chocolate honey sponge birthday cake, complete with strawberries and cream…mmmmmmmm.
Tonight Mark and I will celebrate our anniversary. I honestly can’t believe it has been 18 years since that wonderful day. I truly enjoyed my wedding day and even though the usual things went wrong on the day, I remained happy and excited. My poor mother on the other hand was having a nervous break down when my dad rang her to say he had arrived at the florist to pick up the flowers and they weren’t even open. We actually got married on a Sunday which was rare 18 years ago. Anyhoo, they kept me in the dark and I just plodded along having my hair and makeup done, photos etc and didn’t realise that poor old dad was still running around chasing up bridal flowers.
It might feel like only yesterday that I got married but looking back on my album today I can see we have changed……we certainly look older, have changed shape……hhmmm, I’ve had 2 kids……not sure what Marks excuse is!!
No one likes growing older and milestones bring it home to you – I guess if we have to find one good reason for growing older it gives us the opportunity to watch the next generation growing up. It has been a joy to watch Amber grow from a beautiful little girl into a vibrant and happy woman. Amber is only one of our 14 nieces and nephews and the journey has been exciting for each and everyone of them. We are truly a family that is blessed with love, happiness and good health.
And finally, my mum still has roses flowering in her garden and she picked a pretty bunch of Double Delights for me today. I love the way the sunshine is shining through the rose in this shot. The bouquet of roses smells delightful and is so pretty sitting on my kitchen table.
Until next time….
