Today marks 6 years since Paul asked me to his girlfriend. Good effort, eh? Now that we’re engaged to be married I have a totally different view on this anniversary. Previously my thoughts would be, “3 years together, that’s the longest I’ve been in a relationship, I wonder how many more there will be?” As I’ve now agreed to be his wife and spend the rest of my life with him it’s kind of a relief that I don’t need to think about it anymore. One less thing to worry about. I probably could have said that a lot more eloquently but today’s post is more of a ramble on my feelings at this 6 year stage in our relationship as opposed to something I’ve actually planned out and considered in depth before writing. Oh well.
Another thing I’ve considered is that once we’re married we’ll celebrate our wedding anniversary, which will be at a completely different time of year. Will we still mark September 25th in our mental calendars? We will have been together 7 and a half years by the time we get married and I kind of feel a bit disappointed about having to start counting all over again. Do other couples do this? Do people celebrate their wedding anniversary and also the anniversary of when they first met/got together? I’d be curious to know your thoughts in the comments below. We’re not exactly going all out in terms of celebration but we’re heading out to one of our favourite restaurants tomorrow night and I couldn’t be more excited! Any excuse to veer off the wedding diet ;)
