My favourite day of the year

The 13th of October, because of what happened two years ago on that date.

It’s the day my lovely husband Phil and I were married, outside under the trees in the morning, in the warmth of a Queensland spring, surrounded by our family and friends. It was such a special day for both of us—a chance to publicly declare our love, celebrate each other, spend time with the people important to us both, and a good excuse for a party. I remember parts of the day with such clarity—Emma doing my makeup in the morning, holding tightly to Phil’s hand as we walked across the grass towards the minister,  giving my parents the biggest bear hugs—but other parts are a blur, though a happy blur.

I know it sounds like a cliché, but I think I can truthfully say that my wedding day was the happiest day of my life. All the stress of planning and organising just wafted away once the ceremony started. I can remember looking up at the tree above us, beyond it to the blue sky, and then smiling to see all my loved ones sitting in front of me, smiling back. The day was just as I’d hoped—joyful, relaxed, friendly, happy, wonderful, funny, meaningful.

It’s hard to believe two years has passed since then, but the date engraved inside my ring tells me it’s true. When I tell people I’ve only been married for two years they smile and say that’s sweet, and then warn me that the honeymoon period doesn’t last forever. But while the marriage is young the relationship isn’t—Phil and I have been together for over nine years, and living together for over seven. I think we’ve got everything sorted out by now, and it makes me so happy that our relationship is better than ever—always affectionate, always best friends, always in love. The more I learn of the world, and watch the people around me, the more I realise how lucky I am.

This last Tuesday was our anniversary, and again, I spent the day feeling blessed and happy. It was the perfect opportunity to think about how happy my wonderful man has made me—and then, he sent me flowers at work!

Such a lovely surprise, I’ve never had flowers sent to work before. Which made the day also a good opportunity to boast.

I’m so loved, I’m so lucky, I’m so happy—all because of my wonderful husband. I wanted to take this opportunity to say thankyou to my favourite man, for making me feel so special on my favourite day of the year, and every other day too. <3
