Our Runaway Wedding
So, where to start this thread??
The obvious place is the at the beginning, so here goes.....
I met my future husband in December 2011, in a somewhat strange meeting place (more of that later) yet we didn't actually have a conversation until the February 2012.
Now, everyone loves fairytales and the meeting of 'the one', you know, eyes meeting across a crowded room, the feeling of this is the man for me etc, yet, deep down you kind of know that stuff only happens in films and trashy books. BUT, I experienced that the moment I saw him. And, truth be told it terrified me. I had never had feelings like that before and it was that intense, I actually felt a little sick. Well, this happened everytime I saw him over the next couple of months.
So, when we finally spoke, my head was well and truly mashed to be honest!!
Now, I need to come clean - when we met I was actually with someone else, and had been for 5 years. But, for various reasons (more later!) the relationship was not a relationship anymore. Yes, we lived together, yes, we were a couple (loosely). But, the love had diminished (if ever there in all honesty) and we wanted different thinkgs from life.
Fast forward a few weeks and this relationship was ended and I was embarking on a new adventure with my husband to be. We got together in March 2012.
A few weeks later, my cat duly moved in with said husband to be, closely followed by me
And that brings me to our first holiday in July 2012.... and the location of our future wedding.
