To my dear husband,

I meant to write this yesterday, but well, you know, I had a bit of an emotional day so I never got around to it.

So yesterday we celebrated being married for 5 years. We didn’t really do a lot as since little man arrived, we don’t get chance! But I don’t care, I love spending time with the two of you. I really enjoyed the meal that we went out for, just the two of us. And even though we don’t get along sometimes, your dad is a good egg really (don’t tell him I said that), as he watched little man while we were out, and he does anytime we need him to. 

Who would have thought that 8.5 years ago when we met, that after a couple of months we would be engaged, and 3.5 years later we would be married. But, we’ve made it this far, with many more fun filled years to come. 

Obviously these last few years have had their ups & downs. After we were married, we decided we would start trying for a family in the new year. Little did we know just how hard, tiring, and emotionally challenging that journey would be. After numerous appointments, tests, and tears later, we finally got our long awaited positive test 2.5 years after we started trying to conceive. Then in the following March our precious gorgeous little man made his appearance! 

Six months after that, we unexpectedly fell pregnant again! It was a shock to both of us, but once it had sunk in, we were both incredibly excited, although nervous! But as we know, unfortunately it wasn’t to be, and our little bean went to heaven. So these past few months have also been emotionally challenging whilst you helped me grieve. Although our bean was unexpected, we decided it was something we really wanted so decided to start actually trying. The months went on, and you still put up with me emotionally, until we got our BFP just last month.

Obviously I am in still in the nervous stage right now, but you understand, and still put up with me! After all, that is what a relationship & marriage is all about.

I am so so lucky to be your wife, and I cannot wait to start our life as a family of four next year. Here’s to the next 5 years, and reaching a decade of marriage! 

Thank you for loving me.

I love you.
