I could have written a post about reading, as I knew that is probably my earliest love. Or photography, another first love. But my first true love? My first true love would have to be Dave. My first true love and the love of my life.
Because I've been unwell the last few days I haven't really had time to sit and write a proper post to go with the theme so I am going to re-post something I wrote for our anniversary back in August last year.
On This Day 10 Years Ago, August 2nd 2002...
...I started dating the man I was destined to marry.
|The first pic on the left is one of the earliest pics I have of the two of us.|
The bottom right one he'll probable won't be too happy about me posting! Lol!
...We signed the contracts to buy our first home
On This Day 4 Years Ago
...We got Married
We've been together for 10 years.
One third of my life.
The Happiest third.
|Never would have guessed this 10 years ago!|
And I don't want to imagine what life would be like.
I am seriously one of the luckiest women in the world to have found a man who is so good to me. He puts up with my crap. He looks out for me. He cooks dinner for me almost every night. He often does my washing for me.
He may not be big on the romantic side of things, but it's the little things he does that prove his love for me time and time again.
A love I often don't deserve. A love I've taken for granted on occasion. A love I've abused and treated poorly.
But even after I've treated him badly there is still that love. Through all the good times and the bad, we've stuck together. We've been honest with each other. But most of all we've accepted each other and supported each other, no matter what.
I am so lucky. The luckiest.
I love you Mr.P, with all my heart and soul, and I can't wait to spend the next decade and beyond together.
And by the way...
For me, I think the key to our lasting relationship has been learning to let go of the anger, the hurts, the petty disagreements. Acceptance and a sense of humour. Support.
What do you think is the secret to a lasting relationship?
