From ‘once upon a time’ to ‘happy ever after’…

Ours is a simple love story.

Once upon a time there lived a young woman. Who met a young man.

Who turned out to be her prince.

Mr G,

Ten years ago my life changed forever. You changed it.

You took my hand and looked into my eyes. You smiled at my tears and wiped away your own. You said those 2 simple words that mean so much.

“I do.”

Ten years ago you took a girl and made her your wife, your soulmate.

Ten years ago you promised to love me unconditionally. To keep me safe. To make me happy.

And you have.

You made my dreams come true.

You made me a wife. Then you transformed me into a mother.

It hasn’t always been easy, of course it hasn’t. We don’t always see eye-to-eye and can bicker like the best of them, just like any other couple.

But we’re strong together – a team.

This year we’ll be ten years married. Ten years since our paths, and hearts, became entwined forever.

And while our marriage may ride tumultuous waves every now and again, our ship hasn’t been sunk yet.

Because ten years ago you gave me my ‘happy ever after’.

And I hope I have done the same for you.
