13 years ago I didn’t marry my soul mate


On Monday myself and Sir Galahad were 13 years married. Personally I think we're lucky to have made it! I often envy people's FB posts that say, "x amount of years ago I married my best friend, my soul mate!" I'm like... really? Well you're lucky. Cos I did not marry my best friend and …
