It’s our wedding anniversary today – 13 years since we got married. Not sure if Country Boy has noticed yet (maybe he has a large piece of jewelry hidden away and is just waiting to surprise me – NOT)!
We met at university, and got married when I was 22 and he was 25 – young compared to most people. We knew we wanted to get married so why not get started.
Since then we have been through ups and downs. We have gone overseas, lived with my parents for a year to save money, bought a house, had 3 gorgeous kids, and moved house several times. Between all the bigger events in our lives, we have had lots of fun doing all the day to day things as well as some trying times when the mundane has got just too mundane. I can still honestly say I would rather spend time with Country Boy more than anyone else – he is still my best friend. We don’t argue or fight (mainly because Country Boy doesn’t do arguments), and have always managed to resolve any disagreements amicably. We have been very fortunate that our worse really hasn’t been that bad.
We aren’t doing anything to celebrate this year. We really need some time at home. Just being together as a family is a celebration.
13 years is a long time in some ways (my Dad would say ‘you only get 10 for murder’), but in other ways we have along way to go. Hope the next 50 years are just as good. Love you Country Boy!
