25 Years...

So today's post is a little different to my usual as I wanted to share something I think rather special with all of you.

Way back in the mid-1980's I met a guy; it was a classic tale of a chance meeting in a local nightclub...we liked the same music..we got talking...we went on a few dates...we really hit it off!  Then a few years later we decided the only thing to do was to get married....and 25 years later here we are!!

We've come a long way since then; couple of houses, changes of jobs and careers, two children and numerous Disney adventures but it's been a great ride so far...and we're only just getting started :)

Simon is my best friend and soul mate; always has been, always will.  We have a connection that was instant when we first met and that has only gotten stronger and continues to grow all the time.  Words cannot express how I feel about Simon; I love him with all my heart, he is everything to me.

We decided to get married because we wanted to let the world know how we felt about each other, we wanted our friends and family to come together and celebrate something that we felt was important and special.  And now as we celebrate 25 years of marriage I think it's worth shouting about, it's worth celebrating and sharing with those we love.

So here we are all those years ago....

Back in 2010, as we approached our 21st anniversary, we decided to take the opportunity of doing something that we had always talked about but never thought we'd get the chance to do - get married in Vegas!!  So OK, technically we didn't get married but we did renew our vows the only way we could...with Elvis!

So that brings us to now, 25 years of marriage.  It may sound like a cliche but it really doesn't feel like 25 years; we've created so many memories together and I really can't wait to see what the next 25 years bring :)

So the all important question for us ladies...Do I still have my wedding dress? - Yes!  Can I still fit in it? - Surprisingly yes!!
