A year ago today we were busy getting married, in fact, at this exact time we had probably just signed the register - making it all official! And I must say, this year has been pretty darn wonderful.
To celebrate this day (today is actually our double anniversary - 7 years together & 1 year married - woohoo!) we are off to have brunch (obviously), see our first Broadway show, and inevitably eat some good food. I also thought I'd share with you some of my personal findings from our first year of marriage, because, y'know, why not!
♡ Being married isn't really any different to when you weren't married, but it sure is lovely to now refer to your other half as your husband/wife. It means you can say things like: "Oh these doughnuts aren't all for me, I'll be sharing them with my husband...", etc, etc.
♡ But sometimes you feel kind of like a kid playing at being a grown up when you say it, which also makes it more exciting!
♡ As soon as that ring is on your finger people start to ask you when the babies will start a-comin'! I mean, I guess that's how it used to work: you marry, you move in together, you make babies. But this is 2015 and making babies is wayyyy off in the future for us.
♡ People also assume you've taken your husband's last name, but doing so just wasn't for me - I'm very fond of my surname and so opted to double-barrel instead. Though despite numerous reminders, people do keep calling me Mrs. Jones...
♡ Getting married on our anniversary was perfect, as now that date is extra special to us :-)
