Behind every good man..

I'll start this post with the following disclaimer!
This is a post to celebrate 8 wonderful years of marriage. It's full of soppy crap, so if your not into that sorta thing...move along, there's nothing to see here!

Still reading? You were warned!

I'm a good guy.
I'm not being or cocky or full of myself. In fact I'm normally pretty self deprecating. I am by nowhere near perfect, but I don't have a great deal of bad about me.
The saying goes that "Behind every great man, there's a great woman!" well in my case there is 2.
My mum, who as followers of this blog will know, is no longer with us and my wife.

My mother made me the man I was when my wife met me. I was young, but mature. Sensible and kind. I always used my manners and knew how to be a gentleman.

My wife, however made me the man I am today and for that I am ever grateful.

We have been together for nearly 13 years. 13 years!! If we had a child when we first met, that child would be in high school, smoking, getting suspended and...no....that was just me? I told you I wasn't perfect!

Together for 13 years and today marks the 8th Anniversary of us being married.
I cant believe she has put up with me for 8 years.

It's ridiculous just how bad my memory is. I can do something and after only a few days later I wont remember it happening, but ask me pretty much anything about my wedding day and I will tell you the answer.

The only wedding picture I could find at 11pm
Alot of people say their wedding day was perfect, but ours really was. Nothing over the top, we exchange vows in a beautiful art gallery and had our reception in a small family run hotel. Had a roast beef carvery for our main meal and didn't wake up with a hangover. What more could you ask for?

For 8 years, she has kept me in line, called me out when I was being an arse (As all men can be) and just when I when I thought I couldn't love this woman any more, she has given me 2 beautiful children.

Recently she was told she had the perfect life, one of those factors was how good a husband she had. Well I cant take any credit for that, after all I have to do my best just to keep up with how great she is at being a wife...and now how great she is a mother.

So my darling, thank you for being you, thank you for being the amazing person, wife and mother you are. I love you and I hope that I can type another soppy post like this in another 8 years time.

Happy Anniversary

Love you always
