Last year on our anniversary I wrote about how we met, this year I’m just going to tell you four random things about us, yup it’s our fourth anniversary.

1. Don’t believe in love at first sight? I’m proof it exists. When I saw Shaun I knew. He was working as a barman at Backline and I still get goosebumps when I think of that night. When I kissed him I thought “what a wild story to tell our kids one day”. When you know, you know. And I was lucky enough that he felt the same way!

2. The first night he took me home (as in dropped me off at the gate, he wouldn’t come in), I was disgustingly drunk. he had to pull over so that I could throw up on the side of the road. Charming. I’m ashamed to Anniversary admit that it wasn’t the last time it happened. That’s real love!

3. We had a long distance relationship for 3 years while I finished my degree in JHB and he worked in Rustenburg. We saw another every weekend but it sucked.

4. We were apart for 5 looong weeks when we lived in England because he took a job on an offshore windfarm. I cried every night and begged him to come home. The longest we’ve been apart since is a week and I still cry when I leave.

Happy four year anniversary my love, I love you to the moon and back. I’m blessed to be married to my best friend as well as my soul mate.ย  You’re the only thing I need in this world. Everything else is extra!

About ournextbigadventure

After a few years of travelling around and itchy feet, my husband and I have embarked on our greatest adventure yet...parenthood! We have been blessed with a beautiful little girl named Lily Sage. Now everyday is filled not with questions of "where to next?" but with baby smiles, hiccups and milky breaths.
