The Day I Said I Do
Five years ago today my life changed forever. After meeting Tom the October before, I woke up the morning after I had been discharged from hospital to find him down on one knee at the side of the bed. Of course I said I do, my best friend had just asked me to be his wife and I couldn't be happier.
Throughout the next few years our life together was a rollercoaster. Being rushed in for an emergency gall bladder removal in the march (5 months into our relationship), our first Tholiday together in the May, moving in together in the June ... we were labelled as a whirlwind couple.
Everything came naturally to us. Tom is my best friend in the entire world and I am humbled to be able to wake up next to him every morning, and fall asleep next to him every night. There have been a lot of hurdles, hospital visits and bereavements to endure and yet each one has brought us closer and closer together.
Three years ago today, we got married.
I expected to feel nervous, because everyone tells you that you will be on your wedding day but I didn't. I was excited and sure, like I have never been that sure about anything in my life.
Three years down the line, I still get to fall asleep next to him every night. There have been hard times, but together we know we can get through anything. We genuinely don't really argue, and he brings out the best in me.
I love you Tom, today, tomorrow and always.
