Our Wedding Anniversary

Today, seven years ago, my husband and I got married in Hauwert in Noord-Holland. Family came from near and far to celebrate that day with us and it’s a day we’re still paying for we’ll always remember.

But what is more important than that one day seven years ago is all the days that have come after that day. And the days that led to our wedding day.

Leaving everything behind to move to a new country for one person is a big step. Building a new life overseas is a mountain to climb. Living life as an expat is not always easy. Sharing a home when your mother tongues are different takes patience. Sharing a life with someone from a different culture takes work.

But I would do it all again in a heart beat.

Happy anniversary Mr van Mulligen.

  1. Happy anniversary. You are right, all the days leading up to the wedding day and especially all the days after that are even more important. They give meaning to the remembrance of that day!
