E is for ................ Engagement!

This post is part of A-Z all about me {weekly blog challange} over at 'Love Kate'!

Today is our anniversary!  Our 15th year anniversary!  We have been together for 15 whole years and that makes me happy!

I was 17 when we first started dating and David was 22.  He was my first true love.  And like anyone we have had our ups and downs over the years.  But as we hit this milestone I am the happiest I have ever been in our relationship.

We got engaged when I was 21.  He proposed to me on the top of Elephant Rock at Currumbin Beach on Valentines Day.  And in 2012, we are still engaged.

We had planned to get married back in September 2002 (so we would be 10 years married this year) but for one reason or another we didn't and it suits us just the way it is.

In our time together we have had 2 babies, bought and sold real estate, built a home we love, travelled overseas, planned, dreamed, laughed, cried and loved.  We are happy!

Over the years many of our friend's relationships have broken down and they have been divorced and have re-married.  And even though we may not be married, our relationship feels so strong.

I feel as though I am lucky to have someone that makes it possible for me to be where I need to be while my babies are young.  And as my biggest role in life is to be a mumma, I am so happy that I get to work from home on my own business after years as a stay at home mum.
Whenever I tell David about a new dream or wish, he never ever tells me I am silly.  He supports me.  He does whatever he needs to do to make it happen.  In the last few weeks I told him I wanted to expand my Dreamy Creations product line.  Ever since he has been building late into the night after working really long days on my new products.  This makes my heart happy!

We may spend alot of time wrestling, jumping out from behind walls to scare each other, and laughing our heads off.  But I love seeing the kid's faces when I catch them watching us out of the corner of my eye when we are cuddling or sneaking a kiss.  Their little faces have a smile from ear to ear.  They know we love each other!

Tonight my sister offered to watch the kids while we out to celebrate.  But we decided it wouldn't be the same without them there.  So we will celebrate all together .... just as it should be.

  1. Oh, I love this post Cass. Such a gorgeous, happy couple.

  2. I love this Cassie! It is so true, each relationship is so different and only defined by the way you both feel about each other. It is great to hear how happy you are :-) It is so nice that you involve the kids in your celebrations! x
