me and you {august}

Over our years together,
we've had a lot of stand out days,
those amazing, take-your-breath-away days,
when you can't believe how lucky your are.
And it's been a privilege to share those days with this man;
my best friend, my partner in life.

Of course there have been plenty of special but normal 'every days' in between too,
and the not so amazing ones.
But somewhere in the hubbub of life,
every once in a while,
we take time to stop 
and look at just how lucky we got.
To thank our lucky stars,
for all the 'one days' that have been
and all the 'one days' we are yet to see,
and for having each other to share the 'one days' with.

August started with us waking up in a big comfy bed in Laura Ashley's The Manor,
where we were away celebrating five years of being Mr and Mrs.
So we had to take our photo there and then really,
on our five years and one day anniversary as man and wife.
Five years of ups and downs,
arguments and cuddles,
excitement and fear,
special days and every days.
Five years of sharing a journey with one person,
a journey which has given us amazing things,
five years which have left the next five with some big boots to fill.

Do pop by Becky, Fritha and Kirsty
to see the couples portraits they have to share this month.
And link up your own too,
we love seeing them all.
