I’d written half a post about how I hadn’t felt a sense of relief in a while due to my high anxiety levels. But, I’ve already written a post today about my anxiety so I feel as though you probably want to read something a little more upbeat.

So, I’ll tell you about the relief I felt when I saw my now husband at the end of the aisle just over 5 weeks ago.

I’d been told he was ready, he was on his way and he was fine. I’d been told this 100 times.

I’d had friends telling me we were perfect for each other and the wedding would be beautiful.

I’d had him tell me himself that he would be there.

I even saw him when I was driving into the register office!

But, there was still a small part of me that thought he wouldn’t be there. That he’d changed his mind at the last minute and ran. That he didn’t want to be my husband after all.

Then I saw him. I saw my best friend standing at the other end of the aisle waiting for me to walk down and take his hand and become his wife.

5 weeks later, I’m happier than every – obviously still in the happiness of newlywed bliss – and looking forward to feeling the relief I do every time I see him. He fixes the hard days, and tries his best to get rid of my anxieties.

To my best friend, and my best source of relief. I thank you.




In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Home Turf.”

Five things that make my home, home.

  1. The canvass we had made of our favourite photo together.
  2. A cute little picture of a pinky promise. Our thing.
  3. My photos.
  4. My Disney DVD’s
  5. My books.

I’m a simple girl at heart. As long as I’m surrounded by the people I love and some books and my disney DVD’s to keep my mind occupied I’m happy. Other than the things that stay in the house, home is always better when Joe is here.


18 Days.

18 days. Just 18 days.

18 days until I’m back in paradise with Joe.

Life has been so hectic lately, we just need to get away and go somewhere where we can reconnect and really be together for a little while. Living together is amazing, I couldn’t ask for anything more but it’s a stressful situation to be in. Especially at first.

We’re both adapting, both working, both stressed. It takes it’s toll on our relationship, of course it does. We just need some time to disconnect from the real world and enjoy being together. Just together. No distractions, no bills, no work. Just us.

Just 18 more days to go.


My best friend, my soul mate.

What makes Joe amazing? Everything.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Born to Be With You.”

To find your soul mate is a blessing. For that person to be your best friend too is amazing. I’m lucky, I’m going to one day marry my best friend. Some of you might already know about Joe – I do sometimes talk about him a lot – but today’s prompt has asked for detail on what makes him amazing. I won’t go into too much detail though – promise!

New beginnings.

Our first home together. This is a massive step. A step I’m more than happy to take.

So I have some big news to share with you all – no, I’m not pregnant – Joe and I are moving into our own flat!

It’s been a very stressful week waiting for the referencing results to come through, but we found out yesterday that it’s ours! All we’re waiting for now is the flat to be ready for us to move in which will hopefully be next week!

I am so excited – not that I can show it because my body feels like it’s giving up on me at the moment – to start the next chapter of our lives together. Our own little place filled with the things that we love and want. Free to fill with whatever we need, whatever we want without it getting in the way of other peoples bits and pieces. Our own little place to have our own privacy!

Now all we need to do is pack. And ohmygod I didn’t realise how much stuff we had until we started packing – 2 big suitcases, 3 or 4 holdals and a few backpacks later and we’re not even half way through! It’s going to be a long week of trying to sort everything out at home, only to then sort it out again when we move into our new home!

Wish us luck guys. We’ve never done this before and I just can’t wait to get started. Although, it does mean I won’t be blogging for a little while after we move while we sort out the internet, etc. If anyone has any handy organisational tips for new homes then just let me know!

Happy Tuesday!


The luckiest girl in the world.

It’s really something finding someone who can make everything better while barely trying.

Soppy post alert: scroll down now if you don’t want to read.

There, I’ve warned you. To be honest, I just wanted to give Joe a bit of appreciation – even though he doesn’t actually read my blog – because he is quite literally saving me right now.


All he needs to do is pull me next to him and just hold me. I don’t need presents, I don’t need a big house or lots of money. I need him.

I really do feel like I’m the luckiest girl in the world – a gorgeous man who loves me and who I’m head over heels for, who just happens to be my best friend rolled in.

Thank you Joe. I love you.
