Flowers in the window

It was four years ago today that I married my husband and started out on this rather mad journey that has been us as a family. And now we are three! And however terrifying and awful the past month has been very very often, the moments of absolute delight have been sparkling and they're really all that I'll remember of it anyway. Stuart's love and support has been unwavering, his patience infinite, and I couldn't imagine what this all would have been like without him. He's as good a daddy as he is a husband, which is certainly something. Harriet and I are a lucky pair, and we love him very much.

From the song we danced to at our wedding, which I heard for the very first time one sunny morning two days after we first met, when I just knew....:

There is no reason to feel bad,
But there are many seasons to feel glad, sad, mad.
It's just a bunch of feelings that we have to hold,
But I am here to help you with the load.
Wow, look at you now, flowers in the window
It's such a lovely day and I'm glad that you feel the same.
'Cause to stand up, out in the crowd.
You are one in a million and I love you so,
lets watch the flowers grow.
