7 Year Anniversary

Last weekend was mine and Alex's seven year anniversary of being together, which also meant two years of being engaged (he proposed on our anniversary of our fifth year together) It seems like only yesterday that we first got together, and I can't wait to see what the next 60+ years holds for us!

To celebrate the big day, we decided to go on a road trip to get away from the flat. Since working from home, I am always desperate to get out of the flat! We decided to head towards 'Lulworth Cove' on the Dorset coast and grab a bite to eat. We have been saving like crazy for the wedding, with every spare penny going into the piggy bank, so this really was a treat for us!

It was so soooo cold and sooooo windy... as you can tell from my hair in the above photograph, however it was super sunny so it was a beautiful winters day! We both fell in love with the beautiful Lulworth Cove, and we made a pact to return this summer, as it is such a gorgeous spot!!

Alex is the most amazing person I have ever met, even after 7 years of knowing him, I still learn something new about him. He has been my rock these past few months, supporting me whilst I made the transition to go from full time employment, into the scary world of self employment! He is the king of all kings at 'Pep talks' and giving me the motivation to keep going when I have had a rough day, and he is also the king of all kings of 'I told you so!' when it all works out fine in the end ;) I can not put into words how much I love this man!!

Today, also marks 4 months till we both get married! Where has the past 2 years and 1 month gone?! I'm sure Alex only proposed yesterday! I guess we best start cracking on with our huge wedding 'to-do' list!
