There could only be one post today; today Chris and I celebrate 20 years of marriage. Wow, I can’t believe it, it has flown by. Although Chris seems to think it has dragged mmm.
I can’t believe this time 20 years ago today I was with my Mum, Dad, Brothers and Bridesmaids getting ready for our wedding. Getting ready to walk down the aisle to become Mrs. Sarah Christie. It’s weird I can’t imagine not being Sarah Christie now, my maiden name seems a lifetime ago.
The weather was typical of a bank holiday weekend. It was pouring with rain most of the day and cold, however we were so lucky that the sun came out for the photos. We were lucky to be surrounded by family and friends who helped us celebrate the first day of the rest of our lives.
Yes there were hitches on the day, but I won’t dwell on that too much. I remember thinking when we realised that the caterer had run off with our money, and had provided a finger buffet not fit for a kids party instead of a hot carvery, this is not important the rest of our lives is more important, we didn’t let it ruin our day.
We have been blessed with two wonderful boys and a fantastic life together; we have travelled as a couple, and with the boys. Lived in Essex and Lancashire and moved house lots, if I am honest one or two times too many. We have made some wonderful friends along the way and laughed so much.
It’s weird how technology has changed so much, I have no digital images only the photos from the day, so I have had to photograph the photos to share them. We look so young, and I am glad to say we are as happy today as we look on our photos.
So to my wonderful Husband, Happy Anniversary, thank you for 20 wonderful happy years. Who would have thought we would have had what we do today? When we stood smiling for our wedding photos, a young couple with no clue what life had planned for us.
A life that is rich with wonderful friends and family. Two amazing boys and a dog that truly believes he is human. To all those that were there to celebrate with us on the day, thank you for still being around. And the new friends and family that have come along since, I wish you could have been there to celebrate with us, but hey better late than never. We are lucky to have you all in our lives.
