Two years

Today is our second anniversary. Two years ago today, on a Sunday, Paul and I sat in the Jubilee Gardens at Canary Wharf in the spring sunshine and realised we were made for each other. I was a mess, he was a rock, and it all worked out perfectly.

I'm not sure if we'll celebrate this anniversary again, because by the time it comes around next year we'll be married and we'll have a much more serious anniversary to observe - October 24th. To be honest we've never really celebrated it properly anyway. Last year it was also the day of my Fast Stream Assessment Centre so I was completely preoccupied with that, luckily it paid off of course. This year it just hasn't felt like a big deal really - we bought each other computer games as gifts but we aren't fussed about doing anything else.

Except I guess the reason for me posting here is because it is a big deal, two years. It's the longest relationship I've ever had and one which surpasses everything I ever imagined a long term relationship would be like. Every day I mentally pinch myself because I can't believe how lucky I am. I am so glad that I stopped chasing after all those unsuitable acronyms and settled down with a real man who was so much more than a witty pseudonym.

Real men don't need acronyms. ;)

We still celebrate our anniversary of getting together (the official date anyway!) as well as our wedding anniversary (four years today, woo!). I think it helps that the official date is Ellie's birthday, but we still do a little bit of something to celebrate the anniversary too. It also helps that the two anniversaries are six months apart, so it's a bloody good excuse to wine and dine expensively twice as often. Not that we need an excuse...

I think it's nice to think back fondly of the times before getting married, as well as thinking fondly of the marriage itself.

PS I don't know what your daytime/early evening diary is like, but we're both in London next week.

Yeah that sounds like a lovely way of doing it. Ours are also six months apart so we'll probably be well up for another event to celebrate!

Oh yes I remember you saying about next week - I'm off work so my diary is pretty flexible for both days and evenings. Let me know how your plans go.
