I'm not sure whats going on lately but I am so in love with my husband right now. I miss him terribly when he's not here, can't wait for him to get home so we can talk rubbish and have been cuddling him like a crazy woman.

We've been married for three and a half years, together for five and a half. Things have definatly not always been this good. In fact a few months before Charlie was concieved I was looking at houses for myself and we had the break up talk more than once.

Thankfully I said I would give it another go but there had to be changes. He is now a totally different person, in a good way. Not that it was all his fault that we were falling apart I was definatly doing destructive things for our relationship as well.

Now I feel like I have a partner in raising our kids not another child. He doesn't do things because I ask him(read as nag him) he does it because he wants to, and because it needs doing.

I have finally gotten through to him I don't want him to help me I want him to just do it. Yes it has taken 5 long years but he gets it now, they are our children it is our house this is our responsibility, not mine.

Now I have a husband who doesn't get drunk (except ANZAC day) doesn't smoke (for the first time in 15 years!), is eating better so he can lose weight because he wants to be able to run around with his kids and teach them important things not be a fat drunk man sitting around watching them. He just wants to spend time with us as a family.

My beautiful husband. No one thought we'd make it including us. We had a very rocky start and it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since, but I can't imagine being with anyone else. Love you babe.


  1. Thank you for sharing your story, it's a brave thing to write about, but i am sure many people can relate to those feelings (me included).The hard work has paid off as you truly look like a happy couple with a beautiful family. :)

  2. Thank you so much.
    Its been going around in my head for a few weeks and I've talked to him about it but just couldn't get it out of my head til I blogged about it! What did we ever do before blogging?! : )

  3. I just cried a little. Great honest post Katie. Is that first photo recent because Michael looks like he's lost a fair bit already!

  4. Thanks Dani, sorry I didn't mean for you to cry!

    Yep first pic is recent last pic of both of us together is old, he looks so fat in the face I can't believe we both got that fat!
    He's lost about 18kgs, thanks to Jenny Craig.

  5. Beautiful Story Katie. I think its wonderful that you can share your story with everyone.
