Richard is my husband (or Rich as he likes to be known). We have only been married for 8 months but we met in 2000 and have been a couple for nearly 13 years. We met at work (I was his boss!) and were friends for a little while before we realised we liked each other enough to get together. Here he is on our honeymoon in the Seychelles:
Rich proposed in Paris in June 2011. It took him so long because I always said that I never wanted to get married (based on never wanting to get divorced) but I think after so long together, we were both ready and knew the timing was right.
He is my rock, soul mate and best friend. I would never have got through my dad’s sudden death in 2010 without Rich. He has supported me through the good times and bad times.
Me and my friend Lisa joke about who is the most high maintenance (I think she wins...just!) and my family are just glad that I have found someone to put up with me...so am I.
He is a very laid back kind of person (too laid back sometimes!), whereas I am the opposite but it works and we are perfect together. He has his faults (as most men do) but I can put up with them (just about!).
I love him so much and look forward to us growing old together.
This is one of my favourite photos of us together in Egypt, at the Pyramids:
With the letter 'R' being both our initials (Rich & Row), I have a few things dotted around the house. A fossil tin and fabric letter from Anthropologie:
I am feeling lazy today (it is the weekend) so my artwork today is something I did a little while ago based on Paris ‘Love is’:
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
