My teenage love & reaching a milestone || 25 years of marriage


Yesterday (22 June, 2016) my husband and I celebrated our silver wedding anniversary. 25 years of being married. I shouted about it all over social media and thought I'd shout about it here too for the benefit of those that missed it! Because I am bursting with pride that I reached this milestone with the love of my life. He is my absolute soulmate, my best friend and my support system all rolled into one. He picks me up when I'm down and supports and encourages me in everything, and I mean everything I do. 

We met at 15

Got engaged at 17 (nearly 18)

Bought our first house at 20

Got married at 22




Had our son at 24

Had our daughter at 27

Lived happily ever after. 


Yes we've had our ups and downs, sadness and tears who hasn't, life throws shit at you sometimes but through it all we have been there for each other. We've watched our children grow into young adults that we are so very proud of, and can only hope that they both find someone who they connect with on a deep level and have that special connection. That is my biggest wish for them both. Having someone to love, care and protect you, and being able to offer the same in return, unconditionally,  there is nothing more. 

Reaching this milestone with this man has made me an emotional wreck, I shed so many tears of happiness yesterday I can't tell you! But, my goodness it's gone so quick, it's insane. We had so many beautiful messages from so many people, some even strangers, congratulating us and wishing us well for the next 25 years! We were really touched to receive each and every one of those. 


To help celebrate the day and to make more memories Mr C booked us into The Ritz for afternoon tea as a surprise. So off we went to London. It was such a special day, just the two of us. Photos will follow. 


Life on this earth is fleeting, so we have to enjoy every moment that we can. Mr C and I really try to. We always do stuff 'together', most of our time is spent together, and that's how we like it. Don't get me wrong we both have different interests, but we love each others company, we like the same things.  We love to have fun, on our own, with family, with friends and with them all thrown together sometimes. We love to have a party. We love to dance. We love to be wild sometimes. I don't think we'll ever stop. We have a zest for life and life is about having fun and having so much crammed in the memory bank to look back on with a smile on your face. 


When I tell you this man, my sweetheart, is truly the love of my life, I mean that with every fibre of my being and I will love him till the end of time. I have such a powerful love for him, I cannot even put it into words, sometimes I feel my heart will burst. I am truly blessed to be able to call this man my husband (of 25 years WOW!). 

Some people will question whether you should put your personal details like this, all mushy and soppy on the internet but why wouldn't you want to shout about it to the world? After all this is our history, and our love story for our future generations to see. 


Lots of Love 

Steph and Nick

  9. This is truly such a lovely post. The fact you both have such fun together really shines through! I would love for my story to like your twos, its incredible that you have achieved it. We really should all celebrate those who make it work, because a relationship does take work. I met Sebastian at 18, we bought our first home at 23, engaged at 25, married at 26, first son born at 30...then who knows? Hopefully we will get our happily ever after like you. Beautiful post.x
