A year ago today I was at my auntie's beautiful farmhouse, getting ready for the best day of my life. I was full of nerves, excitement and anticipation, hoping that all of the hard work we'd put in for the 2 and a half years that we were engaged, had paid off.
The day was such a whirl of emotion, I still remember waiting outside my auntie's house with my dad and uncle (my chauffeur for the day), when everyone else had left for church, having one last glass of champagne together, the butterflies in my stomach reaching fever pitch.
The day couldn't have been more perfect and I love that our friends and family loved it as much as we did.
Fast forward a year and I'm sat watching cartoons in my dressing gown with my toddler who has been up since 6am and has decided to take all her clothes off.
Nath and I have just returned from a night away. Nath has always been the spoiling type, I can't complain. We spent the night in The Hilton in Manchester which was just lovely, cocktails in the highrise bar, a meal in one of our favourite Italian restaurants, San Carlo followed by a pornstar martini (my favourite) in The Living Room.
I wore one of my favourite LBD's from Missguided and some new shoes from New Look. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you'll know that I actually hadn't planned to wear new shoes at all. I'd hastily grabbed a pair of black shoes, luckily took them out of the case in Manchester and realised that I'd grabbed two odd shoes! What a dope! At least I'd taken one left & one right! I ended up having to rush to the Arndale centre to buy a new pair!
I'm very lucky to have someone like Nath, he's so easy going, hardworking and is the most amazing daddy! We'd not been together for very long at all before we found out that we were going to be parents and it could have all been so different for us. He's been my rock through the toughest times and I could never be more thankful to him. I know it sounds soppy but he truly does treat me like a queen and always puts mine and Ava's happiness first. I don't tell him enough how much I love him and how proud and lucky I am. I can't wait to spend my life with him!
Later on we're off for some drinks with friends to celebrate and tomorrow we're having a meal with family. We definitely know how to drag out celebrations in this house!
