Love: My thoughts on it at 16 years old

Love: My thoughts on it at 16 years old

What is love? It sure is something the world could do with some more of right now. I was recently going through some things on my bookshelf, when I found something I’d written when I was 16. Dated the 8th of October, I had a vague recollection of writing it in 2008, when I’d been dating my husband for almost a month. Although I’d previously had a blog, I didn’t have one at the time. Really, it kind of is a blog post, but written on paper.

One of my best friends had asked me what love was, when I told her that I loved my boyfriend. She told me that she didn’t believe what I had was love, as I was only a teenager. She used examples of old couples where one has dementia and the other takes care of them as true love. While I believe that love gets stronger over time, I truly believed that what I felt at that time was love. The fact that I have now been happy with Dave for 9 years hopefully reflects that! After having the discussion we had over MSN messenger, I felt like I wanted to write about it. When I found this letter, it was interesting looking back and reflecting on my teenage thoughts about love. View Post

Mumpreneur business – Weddings in Central Park

Mumpreneur business – Weddings in Central Park

I’ve recently started blogging about weddings. It’s almost my 2nd wedding anniversary and I really do miss the excitement of wedding planning! As such, this is my way of reliving it. Today’s post is a guest post from mumpreneur Claire who has a small business, planning weddings in Central Park.  Central Park looks like a great venue for a wedding. I’ve seen it on TV in movies such as When Harry Met SallyElf and Home Alone 2. It’s beautiful and if I’d gone to the US to get married, it definitely would have been my choice over Las Vegas.

Let’s hand it over to Claire… View Post

Our disastrous first post-baby date night

Our disastrous first post-baby date night

During my pregnancy we didn’t really go out and have dates to make the most of our time as a couple before Autumn arrived. This was because I just felt bad in one way or another throughout the whole pregnancy! Autumn is now almost 5 months old and we felt as though it might be time we went on our first post-baby date night. Knowing that my mum was going to be off work due to half term, we asked my parents if they would be able to look after her one evening for us.  View Post
