There have been many epic love stories, however, in my own personal opinion, nothing compares to the epic love story that I happen to call my world. I’m not saying that it is an easy ride, it’s not filled with times where I just want some peace, but what I am saying is it is worth everything in my world. 5 years ago today my wonderful husband took me to the cinema, I had so many butterflies in my stomach, I was absolutely terrified to the point it got to 1:30pm and I wanted to cancel I was so nervous. Anyway, I finally left the house, met him at the park getting ready to walk to the train station, I literally had my head in my phone and tried to pretend that I wasn’t there or I wasn’t secretly looking out for him. Not so romantic, but honestly I couldn’t stop talking, seriously, I wouldn’t stop it was like word vomit, when I tried to think about what I was saying I just kept talking and talking.
Little did I know in that moment, walking down that street, 5 years later I would be writing this or even be able to say that 5 years ago I met this incredible man, fell in love and I have never loved someone the way that I love Paul. When we grow up we read all of the fairy tales of the trials and tribulations that princesses go through to be with the man that they love, some have wicked step mothers, others are princesses and they don’t even know it. When Paul and I got together, little did we know that our roller coaster was going to be what it is now.
As a couple, we have been through so much, we’ve had the highest highs and the lowest lows. Paul has been there through every heartbreaking moment, every appointment with the psychiatrist about my depression, but not only that if it wasn’t for this gorgeous man, I wouldn’t be alive right now writing this. If you don’t know, at the lowest point of my depression I attempted to drown myself, it isn’t something I am proud of, but this man pulled me out. He has been there at night where I’ve cried so many tears it has left my eyes bright red, he has been there when I can’t stop laughing and when I’m making the worst jokes in the entire world, but honestly, I don’t think I would ever want to share my moments with anyone else.
The moment he proposed to me was the most incredible moment of my life, it was New Years Eve, he put arrows down the stairs and out into the garden, it was bloody freezing I tell you that, He played our song, he had got the telescope out so we could stargaze. I looked through because he said I could see Venus, he tipped it down and there was a ring and my future husband, on one knee saying he wanted to spend the rest of my life with me. I of course said yes, because he is my best friend, my favourite person and someone I know that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. It was one of the greatest moments of my entire life and I honestly had never been happier.
Over the last 5 years we have grown so much as people but not only that everyday through everything we grow closer and closer, we have one of the strongest and most special bonds in the world we have our rings that are carried with us everyday. Paul isn’t just someone I’m married to, he isn’t just my husband, he isn’t just my life partner, he is my best friend, he is one of the people that I can go to no matter what happens, reminds me to never stop dreaming, puts up with my pointless moaning, looks after me when I’m ridiculously ill, strokes my head till I fall asleep, even looks after poor drunk Amie when she has had too much to drink and especially when she dances in the street. (No not on the ceiling or though if you asked and I was drunk I’d probably give it a really good go.) We are about as mad as a box of frogs, but the important thing is, we’re crazy about each other. Here’s to the rest of our lives together, every moment, every snore, tea, laugh, grumble, know that I will always be there for you because you’re my happiness, my life, my inspiration and my motivation. Thank you for everything Paul, know my heart is forever yours.
