Steel Wedding Anniversary

11 years ago today, Maggie and I got married.

I was going to write about where we met, why we weren't going to get married but changed our minds, and why "love" seems like such a small word to describe the feelings we have for each other, but then I remembered I wrote all about it last year on our Tin Wedding Anniversary.

Happy anniversary to you both, I shall have to read it a little later ( not feeling to well here today). From what I have come to know of you and your wife's relationship you sound like soul mates, kindrid spirits that were meant to be together after all.

Wishing you many more years.

Thank you Quinn, Sam and Atilla

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!

"There was a time, early in our relationship that I was frightened of using the word “love” because it seemed like such a big word. Now it seems like such a tiny and insignificant word that is incapable of beginning to describe how I feel about Maggie."

Aaw, that is really lovely.

ps: yet another similarity we share, I met Mr Blogs at college, we were both mature students.

That's great Kim. Mazel-tov. Enjoy your day with Maggie. Hey, this day can give you a break from being UniPolar:)

Happy Anniversary :)

Actually, I must admit I envy you. Quite a bit. Is that bad?

I read your tin-anniversary story and it was lovely. Beautiful.

I'm happy to hear love exists in this world.

Happy anniversary!
Hug her and tell her she's funny looking, but make it sound natural and affectionate.
Lemme know how it works, I'm planning on trying something similar in the near future.

Seriously, have a happy, and don't spend it here on the interbutt!

Kim Ayres said...

Stella - thank you

Kate - these similarities just keep piling up don't they :)

BStrong - I don't think I've ever been wished "Mazel-tov" before - thank you :)

Callum - thank you

Eva - welcome to my ramblings! I know what Maggie and I have is rare. It has not always been easy and we have both had to work hard at it, but we both appreciate how lucky we ewere to find each other.

Fatmammycat - thank you

SafeTinspector - the day had gone well until I tried your suggestion. Then I ended up sleeping on the sofa...

- don't worry, I wasn't that foolish :)

I read your Tin Wedding Anniversary post, and both that one and this are beautiful expressions of what is obviously a great love between you and Maggie. Congratulations, and happy anniversary to you both!
Cheers!

Happy anniversary to the pair of you, Kim. We've just celebrated seven weeks of marriage. So far, so good.

Kate said...

I know, it's getting very Twilight Zone-ish LOL

Kim Ayres said...

Thank you all for your warm wishes :)

Attila The Mom said...

Happy anniversary! So what did you get her for your "steel" day?

Handcuffs? ;-)
