BRB - 5 year anniversary edition


Good morning, gang!

Today is officially mine and Alex's 5 year anniversary! Woo!

We're just about to go off on our weekend away. It's going to be a machine free zone, so I'll be back to my internet ways on Monday.

It's crazy to think we've been together 5 years. There was a lot of agro when we first got together for various reasons, and we are so proud to have got this far. Today feels like an eff you to anyone that doubted us.

Follow your heart, people! NOTHING else matters. ♥

An assortment of pics from the vault, including various hairstyles!

    Rob and I have been together 8 years - people always think it's weird that we've been in such a long relationship when we're still relatively young, but if it's right, it's right! :)

    Hope you're having a wonderful time. xx
