…when I think of how Kevin ‘courted’ me. I know it’s such an old fashioned word but really, that’s how he made me feel. As much as I’m a sucker for romance novels, I’m not naive enough to believe that life is a fairy tale and that happily ever after happens without an effort made on both parts. I was never a damsel in distress unless you count the few times I ended up broken down on the side of the road.
Kevin was a romantic – surprises and dinners and flowers and more. He won me over with his charm, his endless patience, his wry sense of humour, his firm and steady personality.
We’ve known each other for 10 years. We’ve been marred for 6 – yesterday was our anniversary. You would think by now, the shininess of our relationship would have worn off. Don’t get me wrong, most of the time, with two kids underfoot and busy lives, the grime of daily life means you have to look for that glimmer but when I look at him, really look at him, and think of how blessed I am to be married to and started a beautiful family with such a wonderful man, I can see the sparkle and I still feel like a princess!
I never feel more beautiful than when Kevin looks at me with a sparkle in his eye. I never feel more safe then when his arms are wrapped around me. My heart is lightened when we can laugh over silly things and it melts a little more every time I see him being one of my boys. I don’t believe in fairy tales but I know that the day I melded my life and heart with his, our happily ever after began. Kevin will always be my own personal Prince Charming and I will always feel like a princess when I think of how much I’m loved!
Here are some of my favourite shots (or at least they invoke some favourite memories!) of time with my favourite guy!
See why I love him???? He’s the best!
