Week 4 has arrived and this series is going quite quickly. I am taking part in Callie's 'Derek and me' series which you can check out here.
Week 4 - When did you know you wanted/could spend the rest of your life with your spouse.
There was no definite moment or divine intervention when I knew I wanted to be with Simon forever. We met in December 2011 and the first couple of weeks were really good. Then in the middle of January 2012 he went away to Norwich for a weekend away to see family friends. It was the first time in a very very long time that I felt completely lost and alone. You have no idea how much I missed him!!! He was only away 4 days but I just wanted to be with him so much. We were on the phone loads and texting in between but it just wasn't enough. Just before he went away I left him a little love note - which he still has stuck to his mirror. I had never felt like that before with anyone and from that moment I just knew I never wanted him to go away again.

I remember when I was younger (late teens) people saying how they 'just knew' they wanted to spend the rest of their life with their partner. If like me, did you roll your eyes and pretend to vomit a little in your mouth when you heard people talk about it? I did! But now I get it. I totally get it. I can't describe the feeling of 'just knowing' but it is the best feeling ever knowing that I am going to be with Simon for as long as I live.
