This year, around Christmas, I kept thinking about the early days of my relationship with my husband, back before we were married.
Getting engaged is a magical, exciting, BIG time in most of our lives. A time that can't ever really be replicated.
While the relative calm of married life (we have been married for 8 years) might on the surface seem boring compared to that lively pre-wedding phase, I find that there is also a simple, peaceful beauty in it.
A photo of my husband & me from last summer.
I was inspired by Mamalode's theme for January-- Story-- to share a glimpse of my own love story, its quiet transformation over time.
I hope you enjoy it, and that other longtime couples can relate to our small corner of the world.
