Five years ago I married my best friend, my soul mate, and someone for whom I am grateful to have in my life. 2015 wasn’t the easiest year for me, I’ve definitely had better. The moment you think you can exhale a little after solving a dilemma, another one rears its ugly head. Some of the issues that I faced included the resignation of my helpers, and the process of hiring and training was frustrating to say the least. We were also faced with a pest problem that forced us to move out of our apartment for a couple of weeks. It came to the point where my friends likened my situation to a real-life soap opera, and having Baby A and Baby M around certainly made things more challenging.
I also made few important decisions together with my husband, including taking a break from my 10 year career as a banker, to purchasing a new house for our growing family. Aside from saying ‘I do’ five years ago, these are two of the biggest decisions I have made in my life. In some ways, I’m grateful these things happened because they made my relationship with my husband even stronger. Love is when the person stands by you and offers unwavering support no matter how bleak the situation. It’s easy to do when everything is smooth sailing, but when the ship starts taking on water, is he heading for the lifeboat? Luckily for me, my husband kept the vow he made to me on our wedding day and stood by me and supported me when I was weak. Thank you for being there for me. I wouldn’t know what to do without you.
Unlike previous years where we would go out for a nice dinner to celebrate our anniversary, this year was very different. I was busy baking for BabyA’s birthday party, so we ordered take out and ate on our coffee table, as the dining table was covered with my baking supplies. It wasn’t very romantic but I thought it was really cute and sweet. I enjoy having take out at home with the man I love. I look forward to spending many more years having take out together with you. Happy 5th Anniversary!
