Valentine’s Day <3

Last year I spent the whole month of February celebrating #Loveuary. I posted each day about various different types of love, from the romantic, hearts and flowers type, to love for friends and family, pets, and favourite foods, things, songs…

It’s come around again so fast, and I couldn’t let Valentine’s day go by without mentioning it.

We decided that this year we wouldn’t make a big deal of the actual day. After all, why choose just one day to show our feelings for one another.

In fact, we aren’t even going to be with each other, as I drive up to my parents to see them today.

But that doesn’t take away from my feelings.

I can show love to my dearest in so many ways. And I can show it every day.

We’ve been as one over twenty years
We’ve laughed so much, and shed some tears
We vowed to spend our days together
We gave our hearts to each other, forever
I don’t need flowers or presents to see
Just how much that you love me
A simple look, a fleeting touch
To me, those little things are enough
And I hope you feel it too
My neverending love for you

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 144

“Real love stories never have endings.” Richard Bach

 

Following in the vein of this special love filled weekend for my Hubby and I, Spidey found this quote which I absolutely loved!

Isn’t this just so true?

If you have found that love of your life, you don’t want your story written, and just signed off ‘happily ever after’… No! You want to continue growing together, evolving together, and writing more chapters of your life together.

Real love should be a never-ending series of books, not a one off chapter book!

I’m off to continue my 16th Anniversary celebrations!

Have a Serene Sunday Peeps!

Anniversary Musings

16 years ago, I finally became a Mrs.

It was a beautiful day, albeit a little cold, being November!

A year of frantic planning, which had followed a beautiful four-year romance, during which we made the choice to be together forever ♥

We did the whole shebang, full on traditional craziness, from all the colourful customs, like the Maaiyaan (turmeric ceremony) and the Chura (Bangle ceremony), to some more modern, personal ones like a fancy dress night – well my family did anyway!

And the day itself was magical.

The beautician turned me into a princess, and my prince was there waiting for me at the Gurdwara, ready to take our vows in front of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, and our loved ones.

We had a beautiful ceremony, followed by a fun-filled reception (I even had a bubble machine for the kids – and me!)

The Doli (leaving ceremony) was emotional, where it really hit home that I was leaving my parents, but after a heart-wrenching set of goodbyes, we finally set off on the journey that would take me to my new home.

And here we sit, 16 years on.

Happily together, with our own home, two crazed tweens, a furbaby and two feathered ones too!!

My Hubby Dearest has been my rock for the last 20 years, to be honest, and every day my love and respect grows for him a little more. He’s put up with my craziness over the years – and there is still plenty of that to come! He lovingly calls me ‘#Hashtag-Valiye’ – Hashtag Girl, basically, having had to share me with this blog, and all the social media that comes with it for the last few years.

I can truly say that I would not want to spend my life with anyone else but him.

Hubby Dearest- Happy Anniversary my darling, I love you more each day, thank you for being who you are, and for accepting me for who I am. Thank you for gifting me with our two children. Thank you for your never-ending support, and belief in me and my capabilities. My wish is that we are together forever, writing new chapters of our life together as we gain wrinkles and memories ♥
