3 Years

Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary.

I know I say the same every year but this last year really has flown by. We had a busy 2012 watching Holden grow, and a couple of weddings and holidays. So far the start of 2013 has involved Holden turning 1, my return to work, selling our flat, and moving temporarily to my parents house.

We have lots to look forward in our fourth year of marriage including our new house being completed in the summer and taking Holden to Florida at the end of November.
