Today is our second wedding anniversary and the journey we embarked on then has gone from strength to strength. I am a wear my heart on my sleeve guy and I don’t care what some people think, I am married to my best friend and I will gladly tell the world daily!

So 2 years ago on this day Atlanta treated us to a lovely warm sunny day for our wedding day, well today its giving us wet grey weather, just like Ireland. As we got ready for the wedding we had a few nights of celebrating with friends and family from out of and in town so its a bit fitting that today on our anniversary my Mam and son are both crossing the Atlantic to spend Christmas with us.

It will be my Mams first visit to see me in the USA and I am looking forward to seeing her, its been a year since we last seen each other. My Mam couldn’t come over for the wedding 2 years ago as she was looking after my Dad who was in a nursing home at the time. After my Dad passed away I never thought my Mam would travel over here so it was a lovely surprise in April when she told us she had renewed her passport and would love to come see us. Full planning mode was turned on and with Robert also expressing that he would rather come for Christmas we had a plan quite quickly, they could travel together!

And so on our second wedding anniversary instead of a lovely romantic evening with my beautiful wife, we will be collecting my Mam and son from Atlanta airport at 9pm, sorry honey but I promise I will make it up to you.

The blog posts are becoming fewer and fewer but I will try keep it going. But it will change direction once again as I become more settled into life here in Atlanta. The last 2 years have been a glorious time and I couldn’t be happier. We have traveled , we have wined and dined, we have become closer as a couple, our journey is about to embark on one of lives great gifts and we are madly in love.

I will sign off by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, Happy Hanukkah or whatever phrase you want to use, just be happy, be nice and kind and everything else will fall into place. Enjoy the season and be safe.
