Wedding Anniversary

Friday, 18 April 2014

It seems crazy to think about, but in 1 month my husband and I will be celebrating 7 years of marriage! We got together when I was 22, back during my uni days, so we've been together a lot longer than 7 years, but for some reason this anniversary seems like a bit of a milestone.  Maybe it's because people joke about the 7-year itch (!) and so if we're still going strong so far we must be doing right. But in reality, for me, I think it's just about how we've survived (or are still surviving!) those crazy years with filled with babies, sleepless nights, nappies, etc and still manage to share a glass of wine together in the evenings and have a civil word to say to each other! If that's not a sign of something good, then I'm not sure what is!

To celebrate I've booked us a little night away without the littlies (hooray - thanks grandma!). It's only partly a surprise as I have let it be known that I've booked somewhere but I have kept the destination a surprise for a little added excitement. I can't wait to have a bit of space to just hang out together again, have a laugh and not to be refereeing between the kids for once. Now I just need to think of a nice anniversary present for M - we may have been together a while but I still have almost no idea what he would deem a cool present! Men, so tricky to buy for!

If I had to drop a (largish) hint for a special present for this anniversary I would definitely say that a pretty necklace would put a big smile on my face! I've long admired Alex Monroe jewellery and these two have to be my faves -

Baby Bee Necklace - so classic, so beautiful!

Hummingbird Necklace - in mid-flight, so pretty!

I know I can be hard to buy for sometimes but I think I may have just pointed him in the right direction! :)

7 years... Does that make us an old married couple yet?!


  1. Yay, enjoy your stay just the two of you. And congratulations on your anniversary! We are coming up on nine years, I can't believe it but I suppose we must still like each other too! X
