Happy anniversary me old china

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

But ...

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
