2 & 7

us on our wedding day {July 25, 2010}. For some reason this is one of my favourite photos. I can't remember what we were talking about {probably about how weird it felt to be told to walk around while someone took pictures of us} but I love that it's somewhat candid, that I'm holding my dress up so I wouldn't trip and that my Husband is grabbing my butt.

Today I have been married for 2 years/been with Husband for 7 years. It feels strange and exciting at the same time. I can't believe that on this day 2 years ago I was soon-to-be Mrs Gaff. I still can't believe my last name is Gaff. That I willingly changed it to be. I hate to say that my wedding day was perfect but it was pretty darn close. It was simple which is just how we wanted it to be. There was no huge ceremony and no huge reception. It was just us. I wasn't stressed. There were no doubts. I didn't wonder if I could do it. I spent the day leading up to the ceremony in a hotel room with my sister, a friend and the make up and hair person. We ate food, drank champagne and listened to music.

I do look back and wish I could change some things. Like my wedding dress which I actually almost hated. It was a last minute rush job after my dream wedding dress was ruined {I'm still bitter about it}. I sometimes wish we had of eloped to Fiji or Bali or somewhere. I wish we could have had a lolly buffet or a photo booth at the reception. Sometimes I wonder if we were lame for doing it so simply...

The only thing I have never regretted is the man I married {actually, also, my shoes and jewellery}. 

I think this quote sums up my feelings for my Husband pretty darn well -

"I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you." 

And to Husband, even though I tell him all the time...

Thank you for loving me x
