Friday will be our 16th wedding anniversary and I have no idea what to get dear hubby as a gift.
It only seems like yesterday that we were young, giggly and excited about our big day.
|A young me and Kassie.|
|A very young Andy and I along with my dear nan, bless her.|
(I look very drunk but I'm sure that's not the case!)
Like most couples we set up home before we were married. This was needed as we were moving Kassie from two homes and we wanted a space to call our own. At the time it was a huge wrench for my mom and dad as they has supported me through a very nasty break up and Kassie was very much one of there own too. Also for Kassie who had to change schools. make new friends and except new rules.
One sunny evening, not long after buying our home hubby collected me from work and told me we were going for a stroll around Bageridge, a nature reserve. As I walked down to the car with him I went to put my hand in his back pocket only to have it swiftly removed, it turns out that my engagement ring was snuggly in the pocket!
At the top of a hill we sat basking in the sun and being the romantic that he is, he bent on one knee and asked me to be his wife.
He had even gone and asked my fathers permission to ask for my hand in marriage!
Now here we are 16 years later.
It hasn't always been easy, no bed of roses as they say, but I know that he truly is the one for me.
We may not always like each other and that's ok, because we always love each other.
Now the hard bit, what can I get him?
The modern gift would be silver holloware, not the most inspiring it has to be said!
It doesn't have to be big or expensive, in fact I'd rather it wasn't.
But something to say I am still glad I said "I do"
Any suggestions welcome!
