The count down has begun for many people they counting down to the massive party they having or going to on new years eve for me its the count down to the day that changed my life. Its the count down to the 6th Anniversary of the day WE said I DO…
Its hard to believe that its been 6 years I remember it like it was yesterday the look on your face when you saw me in my wedding dress for the first time, the way dad helped you straighten your tie ,the way I started crying when your cousin our best man welcomed me to the family and the way you kissed me when our officiant said you may now kiss the bride before we headed off to our ceremony…OK wait let me rewind abit here. One of South Africa’s laws is that you have to sign the marriage registry under a roof so while I got my dream wedding on the beach what most people didnt know by the time we exchanged vows on the sand on that summers morning on Muizenberg beach we were in fact already legally married. We signed the register in my parents home the house I grew up it which made it even more special.
I’ve never been the type of girl that dreamt of her wedding since she was a little girl in fact I never really wanted the whole BIG White wedding only thing I wanted was to get married on the beach and that’s exactly what I got.We had a small intimate wedding followed by a reception at my parents house. Since the day I met you David I had no doubt in my mind or my heart that you were the one I will spend the rest of my life with and on the 3rd January 2009 we made it official and I became Mrs Terblanche.
Marriage isn’t easy but then again nothing worth doing is ever easy right.We were both 21 when we got married and while so many people were against it we knew what we wanted and we wouldnt let anyone get in our way. So today as we approach our 6th anniversary I wanted to say to you David that you are the best thing that has ever happened to me , you are the one that knows me inside and out.The one person who knows what I’m thinking without me having to say a word and most importantly you the one person that has my whole heart. Its been an amazing 6years and we have been through so much but it has only made us stronger as husband and wife. Despite everything that’s been meant to tear us apart has in fact brought us so much closer together and nothing in this whole wide world will EVER tear us apart because the love we have for each other is so much bigger than it all.
I Love you with all my heart and with all my soul and that will never change for as long as we both shall live.
Happy 6th Anniversary David Terblanche
