A SPECIAL Blog Post from My Heart
to mark the 20th of June 2015, as forever, this will be a fabulous day.
Today marks our
first wedding anniversary!
Thank you, Richard, for continuing to be the absolute best.
And so it calls for a photo stop tour (thanks to the wonderful Dominic Wright Photography) of our wedding, accompanied by the words of a certain poem which some of you might remember….
“From the Girl Next Door”
From the girl next door, to a boy across the street
Come these words from within,
Which make my heart beat.
Let me take you through our journey, from the moment we meet.
I was five, you were six. we were street mates from the start
School runs, party games,
We were never far apart.
Douglas Road, it seems, is where good things always start…
And so it began one night,
when we took a midnight Eildon walk.
Excited chat, nervous laughs,
The hills knew our secret talk.
And I knew back then, that I had met the man who’d steal my heart.
You are patient, you are kind, you are everything I ask
You hold my hand through ups and downs
At times, I know, a task…
From Brindisi to Birmingham, Morocco, Rome or Spain,
No matter where you ended up,
You’d fly back home again.
You always know, you’re always there, you sweep me off my feet
You always think, you always care
You make me so complete.
So we begin adventures new, hand in hand, side by side.
I can’t wait to explore the world with you,
Let’s stay on this whirlwind ride!
So come and fly the skies with me, let’s dance and swing our kilts!
For I have met my one true love, my only love,
…My Mr Captain Richard Wilks.
Thank you so much to all our wonderful friends and family for making this day so special. We will treasure the memories forever.
