Being In Love

I met my now Husband Adam at the age of 14, we we're at school and though we we're only children I knew that there was something special about him the first moment I saw him. Was it love at first sight? I don't know - I'd like to think so. All I know was there was just something. I was shy, not confident and never ever ever going to 'ask him out'.. One day my best friend at the time, to my surprise, did it for me.. thank god she did! 

Adam and I are now both 24 years old, it's been 10 and half years since then and we have both done a whole lot of growing in that time.. both physically and emotionally. Luckily, we have only ever grown closer and closer together. Do we row? Of course we do, I don't understand relationships where couples claim not to ever have had an argument, surely then one or both of you aren't speaking your mind? And from my experience, honestly is always the best policy. Adam and I are so similar and do absolutely everything together, we love, respect, admire, cherish and adore each other more than is possible to explain but it's totally impossible to agree on every little thing, and again from my own experience I feel that our relationship works so well because we get things out, we tell each other when somethings bugging us, we don't let the other be in a stinking mood and take it out on the other, we talk things through. 

The last 10 and half years of my life have been honestly AMAZING, there is no better feeling than sharing life with someone who you love and who loves you. Every single day I know how lucky I am to have him and my god every single day I am so thankful that I get to share my life with him. There isn't a day though that goes by where I don't worry about him, when you love someone so much all you want to do is protect them and know that they're safe all of the time. But this over-protecting worry that I feel only serves to make me more and more grateful for every single day that he returns home safe from work.

Not everybody has someone that they're in love with or that is in love with them but I believe that there is someone out there for everyone. If you are lucky enough to have someone you love, remember to tell them and show them every single day and in every single way that you can because being in love and being loved in return is honestly the best feeling in the whole world.

    1. Thanks Hayley, we had a little break for 3 months when we we're 15, but we don't count it because 1. we were kids, haha. 2. we had already been out before my friend asked him out for me for three months (so it makes up the time hehe). But yes, we've been together ever since that :) xo

  3. What a lovely post. I've been with my OH since I'd just turned 16, I love hearing old couples say they were childhood sweethearts. As for the no arguing, we actually didn't for 5 years. We're both so laid back and the same we had no reason too..now Rios here we bicker over his families opinions every now and again lol.

  4. Lovely post. I have 1 question for you... has Adam read it!? lol.
