22 years ago today

I hadn't really slept.
I was nervous and excited.
And excited and nervous.
Then, dear reader, I married him.
22 years later I cant't imagine life without him.
He makes me laugh.
He put the bins out.
He (sometimes) lets me put my cold feet on him to warm up.
What a star!
Happy Anniversary hun!

The day before we got married was my mum's 50th birthday. So for the first few years the 'rents would come and visit us to have a double celebration (ie they got our one bedroom and we slept on the sofa and floor in our tiny flat). Because they were coming and we had to do a lot of cleaning and tidying and present buying for mum, on our first anniversary it suddenly dawned on us that neither had remembered a card so we had to go to the nearest shop and hide from each other while we bought one! (This year Phil remembered at 5pm yesterday)

To stop that happening to me this year I decided that the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week would be
Happy Anniversary
and here is my card
Lovely Cosmo Garden Variety papers, all outlined with black card. A Martha Stewart border punch, Papermania chipboard pieces, some Stickles action and a gem and it was done. Neither of us reneged on the no presents pact (phew) but we will go out for lunch today.
Whatever your day brings - may there be some love and laughter too!
