9 Years And Counting

9 years ago today I married my soul mate.

A man I had lost hope in ever finding. A man who cares for me, loves me, betters me.

It has been no easy road for us. Family members tried to stop the wedding, my depression meant we spent a year of our married life co-habiting and having a disabled child has pushed us to our limits but even though there are days I wonder what are we doing ?  But when I go to sleep at night I dream of no one else than my best friend and soul mate.
I dream of our future, a future I pray one day we have, our every days now are hard and strain is showing but I know with Ashley by my side we will get there as together we are one serious fighting, loving machine.

Our wedding may not be the day either of us had dreamed for, it was a beautiful setting and most importantly we became a unit on paper as well as in our hearts but when I close my eyes I dream of a different day.

So I am over the moon as next year I get to marry the man I love again. Next year our 10 years shall be celebrated saying I Do and we are both seriously excited.

To have our babies be a part of our day. To share the love we feel with people who are important to us. No pressure just a party of happiness. I am so excited that so many friends we have met through our blogging world will be by our sides. Enjoying our day with us. An awesome blogging friend photographing our day, another singing and another helping me to plan and make it a beautiful day.

Ashley and I
But most important my best friend, my protector and the man whose bum is the best on the planet will be tying the knot with me for a second time.

Thank you Ashley for being my Husband these past 9 years, here is to many many more. xxx
