8 years ago today, I put on a long white dress and a veil. I met a man on the King's Road outside the Kensington & Chelsea registrar's office in London and when we went inside we said these words we wrote to each other.
"I give you this ring as I give you my heart that it might remind you that you are missed when we are apart.
I promise to be by your side as a friend and lover through poverty and prosperity, strength and weakness, to celebrate our triumphs and withstand our trials, to go the extra mile to realise our dreams and to meet you half way to resolve our differences, to face our future with hope, grace and love. Shoulder to should, hand in hand all the days of my life."
Happy Anniversary, Marc! Thank you for all you are and all you make of me.
