Above is one of the first photos we have together. This was six years ago and we were at Alton Towers, and a friend took this of us when weren't looking. I have bleached blond hair, and am wearing hot pants. (I couldn't get them over my thigh's now!) and Mr E is wearing some rather unfashionable shorts.
At this point our relationship was still a secret and only a few people knew. We had already known each other two years at this point and had lived together as friends for a long time just me and him.
I knew that he had feelings for me but scared of losing his friendship nothing happened between us for a long time. He decided to buy a house and I moved in with another friend and so the tenancy ran out on our flat. On the day we were packing up our things I realised how much I was going to miss him. We ended up kissing and have been together ever since.
We have lived in Leeds, London and now Cambridgeshire, have had amazing times, brilliant times and tough times, but throughout it all we have always stayed the best of friends. We have travelled to the most amazing destinations, had the most drunken and crazy nights out, laughed till we cried and cried till we laughed.
In December 2009 we sealed the deal and got married.
Above is my favourite photo from our wedding. We had some amazing pictures taken, posed ones and capturing the moment ones. I love this one because although it is not the most flattering (I have teeth and gums like a horse) I feel it sums up our day the best. I am laughing hysterically and I am cuddling Mr E, something which I have done pretty much every single day in the last six years.
It was one of the best days of my life so far- it snowed but there was beautiful bright sun in the sky. All our family and friends were there and I was showing my commitment to my best friend.
Fast forward another year and on the 24th December 2010 our beautiful Mads was born. (We seem to enjoy making December a rather expensive month) Our family is complete.......for now!!
So this post is dedicated to Mr E, who although is the most messy creature alive, doesn't brush the cat enough and likes red wine when I like white, is my rock, my best friend and my hubby!
(Ok mushiness over now....pass the sick bucket.)
Now head over to Cafe Bebe and go back in time!
