The love abounds!

So I was sitting on the loo.

You know - nothing is sacred once you have kids. In comes Aphid #2 whining *I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed a hug!*

Who was I to refuse?

A big squish ensued. Lots of love and snuggles.

His reply?

Feeling ambitious!

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.... lovely church there was:

Starwars! (A Wedding!) 

Aside from the fact that it is very nearly our 8th wedding anniversary, I went on a witch hunt to find my dress because I was hoping that some of that lovely tartan fabric was hiding in there too.

You see, my Darling Husband has significant Scottish ancestry. He tells me that The Black Douglas is a long lost relative and I'm inclined to believe him.

(See! They even wore the same clothes ;) )

Anyway. I opened the giant suitcase full of my wedding dress and remembered that I still hadn't had it cleaned. Far from being the perfect bride, I'd just taken it off and packed it away. 

So when I opened the suitcase all those memories flooded back. 

So naturally, I stuffed it into my washing machine, threw in a little nappysan and hoped for the best.

(It survived!)

Now I'm just waiting for it to dry completely, so I can try it on again. I do it each year on our anniversary. This year it will be a week early because I couldn't be bothered getting it down again after I put it away!

♥ Happy (early) Anniversary Darling Husband of almost 8 Years! ♥
