As time goes by, priorities consistently change. Which keeps life interesting and gives purpose to the every day. For the first 3 years of marriage, Scott and I were footloose and fancy free. Doing what we liked, when we liked. Each year, we marked our wedding anniversary with a weekend away or a holiday. Good times that we will always look back on in the same hazy, romantic way we look back on most things we did, prior to starting a family.
Yesterday, we celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary, in true family style, with the afternoon spent at one of our favourite parks. The sun finally escaped the heavy clouds and shone through in spectacular form. The boys ran and crawled and discovered. They played hide and seek, finding secret spots in the trunks of large trees and underneath low lying canopies of leaves and branches. Felix experienced pine needles for the first time and delighted in scrunching whole handfuls of them between his chunky little fingers. A perfect setting for exploring nature to their hearts content. And whilst it wasn't quite as relaxing or near as indulgent for us, as anniversaries passed, it was in every way as memorable.
