Four Years

This is why I continue to love Jon more and more every day, his sense of humour. He’ll “consider” giving me his last rolo.

Four whole years.  Me.  With a boyfriend.  A proper alive one and everything.  Who I live with.

I’m very lucky.

Some of my favourite love things:

I love that you put up with me snapping instagrams of us pretty much everywhere we go.

I love that you let me wear your socks, even though it annoys you.  I love that you'll even let me wear socks that kind of match yours.  And then photograph them.

I love that you'll sit on the sunny side so I can be in the shade.  And that you'll let me caption your face even when it goes like this.

I love that you've learnt to cook, and that we now cook together to relax after a long day.  It's such a special time.

I love that you've not made peace with being called Mr. Gates, but embrace being the permanent plus one and get so involved with all my interest.

I love you so much that I don't even mind when you bring these hobbit toes into the house with all your exercise dirt on weekends.

Happy Four Years, my man-friend.  Elephant shoes.

    I was loving the cute couple pics, calling each one my favorite – but the wanna-be bumble-bee wins hands DOWN. That was a very fast 4 years – much more happy little girl, you deserve every day.
