This year’s Valentine is really special to my husband and I…
Our story begins in March 2008 – that’s when we first met. We hit it off right from the start, but we only got together officially in June 2008. In August 2008, we moved in together, and in October of the same year, he popped the question. We moved at lightning speed, I know, but hey, when you’re with the right person, why wait? The proposal itself was spontaneous – we were just lying on the bed, watching a movie when he turned to me and asked me to marry him. It wasn’t planned, but for me, it was the most romantic thing ever precisely because it wasn’t planned. Less than a year later, in June 2009, we tied the knot in a small private civil ceremony, and in March 2012, we renewed our vow with a lavish reception in the presence of friends and family.
2 continents, 3 countries and 4 cities later, here we are in 2015, finally settling down in London – we both now have good careers (something we’ve worked so hard over the years for), and in a month (more or less), we’ll meet our lovely baby girl. Oh, and of course, we’re also looking to buy our own place – our first family home. So yes, this year’s Valentine is really special to us – in a way, it marks the end of our journey as a couple and the beginning of our journey as a family.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! xx
