Before I begin, I want to say Happy Birthday to my man Jay! Thank you for being so amazing.
I thought I'd respond today to some of the sweet comments on yesterdays post.
Yes. I did forget to mention we got married on the same date! Twice. Honestly, how did I not remember to mention that?
The 18th day of May was such an important date that there was never any question we'd have our wedding on any other day. So, five years later to the day, we got married.
We knew we didn't want a church wedding, but this was Ireland in the mid nineties. Really, what was the alternative? Well, other than going to the registry office? Nothing.
So that's what we did. And we managed to have three days of celebrations between our family and friends. It was wonderful.
But five years and two children later the internet had arrived and suddenly there were other possibilities. I found a Swiss witch called Silja living in Dublin who agreed to officiate at our celtic handfasting. We wrote our vows and had the ceremony in our garden surrounded by family and friends. And with a few little adjustments I even managed to squeeze into my original Mucha inspired dress that my Mum had made!
So there you are. Of course next year is another significant year. I wonder should we do something to mark it?
Now there's an idea!
Edit: Thanks for all your sweet comments, and for those of you interested you can see more of my dress over here on Carnival!
