Time Flies | 14 Year Dateiversary

14 years ago today we went on our first date and held hands as we walked down the beach.
For two people we couldn’t be more different. We have less than a handful of things in common with each other but, those we do are important.  It’s important that you like the same dinosaur, right?

I still get butterflies when we kiss, or when I watch him smiling & playing with the kids and he doesn’t realise.
He knows exactly how I like my tea.
He buys me my favourite flowers for no reason.
I love that kisses me on the forehead when I fall asleep.

He was there when I crashed the car through the neighbours living room window.
And when I flooded the bathroom.
When I fell off the horse. And the bike.  And the wall.  And the kerb. And the ladder.
he was there when I superglued my eye closed.  Laughing, but there. (A story for another day).
He’s seen me at my worst, and at my best & deserve’s a medal for going through 2 pregnancies with me.

Happy Dativersary! (totally a real word).
It’s been a pretty hilarious 14 years.
So, here’s to the butterflies.  May there be many many more <3
