After Anabelle - Raising Rainbows
Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

Greatest Day

At this point, two years ago, I was busy having my hair and make up done and being turned into what felt like a princess. I was just a few hours away from marrying my lovely Jon and becoming Mrs M! 

Full of excitement for our future; never could we have anticipated what would happen 10 months later. 

I'm still excited for our future. It isn't the future we imagined and our lives will never be complete; this is something we have to accept. Grief and the absense of Anabelle will affect us forever, but we have each other. Through it all.  There is so much left to live out, plan, grow and experience. 

1st August 2009 will forever be some of my happiest and fondest memories. I would love to rewind and do it all again, although one things is for certain - I wouldn't be fitting in my beautiful big white dress today would I! 

I know every bride says it; but it was one of the best days of my life. 

We married at the gorgeous country Cwrt Bleddyn Hotel surrounded by pink and white roses. My favourite colour and now favourite flower!  White Roses came into their own; my dress was a "White Rose" designed dress and it was the perfect idea for it to become our theme and finer detail to our day.  I've written about what the white rose  means in our lives before. 

Then there was the pink, I remember there being 'discussions' about my colour choice! Jon wasn't at all keen to begin with, until we were planning our wedding Jon 'didn't do pink'. But of course the 'discussions' went my way! He came around and wore the ivory with pink swirls waistcoat and cravat to match my bridesmaids fushia pink dresses!  Beautiful! 

 I meant every vow then, like I mean every vow now. I loved every minute of our day and would marry him all over again in a heartbeat.

So I'll finish today's mush with one of the readings from our wedding. Full of the truths of love and possibly my favourite photograph from our day. Captured during first dance when we forgot the cameras were even there; too wrapped up in each other celebrating our Greatest Day

Love is giving, not taking
Mending, not breaking
Trusting, believing
Never deceiving
Patiently bearing
And faithfully sharing
Each joy, every sorrow
Today and tomorrow.

Love is kind, understanding
But never demanding
Love is constant, prevailing
Its strength never failing
A promise once spoken
For all time unbroken
Love's time is forever.
