5 years ago today….
Although it feels like only yesterday, it was 5 years ago today that Karl and I got married. I couldn’t let this occasion go past without taking the opportunity to embarrass Karl (and myself!) by posting photos of ourselves of kids.
This photo of Karl below makes me laugh so much; the chapped lips and the ‘I-really-don’t-want-to-be-here’ expression on his face. We used these photos on our order of service so that all of our guests could have a giggle at our expense!
And here is a snap from our honeymoon. We’re on the back of a jeep on our way to an elephant safari. As you can see, it’s by no means a professional photo. It’s taken with a little point and shoot by the guide on the trip. But it’s one of my favourite photos of us as we just look so happy and it takes me right back to that wonderful moment.
Sometimes the emotion in a picture is way more important than how technically perfect it is! Although it does make me a little depressed when I realise that 5 years and 2 kids down the line, and I’m not looking quite so healthy, tanned and slim…hopefully a few of you can empathise with that!
So happy 5th anniversary to my wonderful husband and for making the last 5 years magical (don’t worry, I’ve saved the really soppy stuff for his card!)
