Five years on…

Today is our fifth wedding anniversary. Wow the last five years have gone so fast and what fun we’ve had. I thought I’d share a quick run through our life of the last five years. Here we go…wedding_love_fiveIn 2009 we were so young and very much in love on our wedding day. We are still crazy in love five years on just as it should be. Mr Ecochick really is my world and the love of my life.

wedding_love_fiveAlso in 2009 we bought our first home. I love our house. We’ve done so much on it over the last four years. We’ve redone the bathroom and laundry, John’s room, Gabriel’s room and so much around the garden.

2013 along came my angel Gabriel. Now that my angel is here my life is complete. I have my two beautiful boys that I love like crazy.   garden_nz_ecochickWe’ve worked hard on becoming more self sufficient on our urban homestead and have done a huge amount of work on our garden. We grow lots of our own fruit and vegetables. This year we even got our own plums, nectarine, peaches and grapes. Yummy.

I love my life. I feel so blessed and special to have three amazing boys in my life who I love to bits. Wow thank you Mr Ecochick for an amazing five years of love, fun and craziness. Woohoo what a ride!!!

      Aww thanks Elizabeth. Has been a fun ride!! We’re going to have a family picnic at the beach (though it looks like it might rain which is fantastic!! We haven’t had rain in ages!) so might take the kids to a restaurant and no doubt we’ll have a nice relaxing evening together once the kids are in bed. To infinity and beyond!!! Mx

    Congratulations. It is wonderful to hear success stories about marriage and families. I love to hear about it. Your love of life, your gratitude, your joy is all very inspiring and heart-lifting. I love it. Thank you for sharing a feel-good story about you and your life. I think I am where you are at with my life, but it has taken me a lot longer than it has you, so there you have something else to feel happy about. May the rest of your life be full of the love and excitement and joy which you have managed to make happen so far and a few pleasant surprises too.
