Today is officially my 2nd wedding anniversary to my gorgeous husband Paul. It’s been a crazy 2 years, filled with so much love, laughter to make your sides hurt and tears that are dried by Paul. He is my absolutely rock, words can’t even begin to describe how grateful I am to have this beautiful guy by my side everyday, supporting me, loving me even when I’m not so loveable, he is just the epitome of perfection. I’ve been with Paul since I was 17 years old, I honestly cannot imagine my life without him, or waking up and seeing his grumpy face next to me because he loves his sleep.
We got married when I was 21 and Paul was 23, people actually questioned about whether we were too young to be married (I wrote a post about it here) but do you know what marriage to some people might seem like a bit of paper, but it is so much more than that. That small bit of paper signifies so much more, it signifies a beautiful commitment that I have made for the rest of my life, for better or for worse, when times get tough as long as we have each other we have everything in the world that we need.
Something I have learned in 2 years is that no marriage is a fairytale all of the time, but do you know what? Mine is pretty damn close. Everyday we work hard on our happily ever after, through arguments, illness, grumpiness, we work at it everyday, it is hard, but it is the greatest feeling in the world.
I remember standing outside with my dad, my gorgeous bridesmaids, my best friend who was my maid of honour, my sister in law Yasmin & my little cousin Mia & crying because I could see all of those people sitting in there waiting for me and I was so nervous yet so excited to marry this amazing guy who had bought so much happiness to my life and basically sat by my side through some of the darkest times of my life. As most of you know I have struggled with depression and self harm, and this amazing guy stayed there, he was there through the nights where I couldn’t stop crying, when I couldn’t walk out of the house and supported me through my doctors appointments, he was the most supportive guy in the world.
Walking down that aisle though was honestly one of the most nerve wrecking thing in the world, you feel all of these eyes on you, and Paul wouldn’t turn round until I almost got to the end of right next to him. When he looked at me though my heart just skipped, I knew that this was going to be my forever.
Paul, I will never be able to make up for what you have given to me, you’ve saved me from so much and I am so grateful for everything you have ever done for me, you’re the love of my life, my soul mate and I’m not going anywhere ever. Thank you for just being you. I love you so much.
