and sometimes it is the little things

I begin to realise that it is not always the grand gestures and the big presents that touch me. Sometimes it really is the little things that I love. And also that learning to let go and forgive can sometimes be alot easier in theory. That sometimes forever is not really a measurement of time but a state of mind.

On this day 2 years ago, at a quiet little church in northern france, we got married (again!). And time has just slipped away like bubbles on a gentle breeze - can you spot those bubbles in the photo? Why did you get married? What are you looking for in your (potential) lifetime partner?

For me, marriage is a public acknowledgement of a private emotion. And each time we celebrate our wedding anniversary, we celebrate the fact that we still love each other, even when we (occasionally!) want to wring the neck of our spouse.

Happy anniversary! How time flies! You are right, we pick who we marry because we choose to grow old with them, warts and all. Even though we occasionally want to throttle them, but hey, that's what makes the good times sweeter...
