Today is mine and Neil's 20 year wedding anniversary
Happy anniversary sweetheart xxx
This is the card I made for him
The design is one taught in YeeTings last class at the shop, I loved the style and colours and knew Neil would too, I altered just a couple of details for it to suit the occasion and of course added a romantic verse inside.
This is the little pile of gifts I woke up to this morning after a long lie-in ( and yes the photo is bad, the lighting is poor and they are all piled on my duvet, very cosy but not conducive to a great photo !)
All these squishy little delights contained clothing from Fat Face, my fave brand of casual wear
This is far more than I was expecting as I had already received my official anniversary gift which was this little beauty
Yes I have been totally and utterly spoiled, Neil gave me my ipad early so I have already been playing with it for a few weeks and I certainly didn't expect anything else.
And then, just as I was about to get out of bed and start my day, he presented me with this gorgeous little box
A stunning pendant with my initial by Theo Fennell
I am so happy with all my lovely gifts but by far the best thing was realising that through many, many ups and downs, lots of life changes and upheavals, I have had my soul mate by my side.
Life has not always been easy
Sometimes life has been bloody hard
Sometimes we have not agreed
Sometimes we have cried
Sometimes we have struggled
Sometimes we have been lost
Always we have talked
Always we have shared
Always we have done things together
Always we have loved
As Neil wrote in my card, here is to the next 20 years !
I love you completely and utterly sweetheart,with the whole of my heart
Thankyou for always being there, my rock, my heart - my soulmate xxx
