Today is my 21st wedding anniversary. I can't believe I've been married so long!
Like any marriage, we've had our ups and downs and life hasn't always been easy, but thankfully the hard times have brought us even closer together and we are still very much happily married.
This is our second wedding anniversary in lockdown, so a takeaway meal and not having to cook will be the biggest part of our celebration! But hopefully these strange times will all be over soon and we will all be able to go out and celebrate everything we've missed in the last year.
We also missed celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary but by some kind of strange premonition we went all out for our 19th and spent a lovely weekend in London. We'd done the same for our 10th anniversary and were looking to repeat it for our 20th, but after my illness I decided that life was short and we wouldn't wait for the next year. So spooky!
Although only March I remember having a mini spring heatwave in the run up to our big day. We were married in Chester Town Hall, had our photographs taken in the gardens of Chester Cathedral and then travelled round Chester in an open topped vintage car to the Guildhall where we celebrated until the early hours of the morning with all our family and friends.
So today I'm feeling very grateful for my lovely husband, my two boys and all the family and friends who make my life so special.
