Our 2014 Anniversaries!

We recently celebrated a couple of anniversaries- because you know us, we don't just stick with the one!

Somehow 2 years has flown by since our Civil Partnership in 2012, so we had a lovely 2 year anniversary. As we've recently spent a lot on Whitney's next visa ('indefinite leave to remain') we thought that was a big enough present in itself (!) so we didn't do presents this year. However, I did sneakily wait for her outside work with a pink and white rose bouquet- the colours of the flowers at our CP! She loved the surprise, and funnily enough she was about to head over the same florist to try and sneakily get me a little bouquet! I won!! ;)

Our anniversary wasn't technically until the Sunday, but we decided to go for dinner on the Saturday (so that we could enjoy lots of champagne without work the next day). 

On the saturday, we decided to randomly go to Coworth Park in the afternoon for a celebratory drink... as well as a little nose around as it has always been high on the list for a wedding venue; we just hadn't managed to look around yet. We certainly weren't disappointed- we love the copious wild flowers and old feel to the manor house, but when you walk inside it is completely tastefully modernised. We love it! (and yes we will be booking a proper showing.. eee!) We had a glass of champagne (also love that Veuve Clicquot is their 'house' champagne!) and decided on a cheese platter to nibble on as dinner wasn't too far away. 

After a lovely afternoon at Coworth we headed home and popped open a bottle of rose Moet, which we had the morning of our Civil Partnership.  A glass or 2 later, it was time to head out for dinner.

We went back to where we celebrated our 1st CP anniversary at Gilbeys in Eton. We love the conservatory part to the restaurant, and they do great quality English food. We had a yummy starter and mains, though Whitney's steak was sadly a bit too tough (but I know nothing about steaks...). All in all, it was a lovely evening.

Onto the Sunday- the actual date of our anniversary! We had a lie in with coffee and croissants in bed- our fav. Our heads were feeling fine as a result of drinking good champagne, taken us a few years to realise that! We headed back to Danesfield House, where we celebrated after our CP. It was beautiful as ever, and we explored further in the grounds than we had before. We decided to have champagne afternoon tea (clearly we can never get enough)... and reminisced about our "big-little" day.

All in all we had an absolutely wonderful weekend of celebrating our 2 year anniversary, that not only signifies our love for one another but the ending of long distance and our lives now lived together.

& do you know what?... We had another anniversary! 5th October 2014 marked 6 years since we officially became an item. This was us 6 years ago on a night out in Cardiff, and the next day we became official. Look how young we look!! Haha.

We didn't overly celebrate this day, we decided to finally open a bottle of Moet that we had bought in Hawaii and transferred it from one hotel, to another.. to finally back home as we just didn't fancy it amongst the Hawaiian beers we were loving! We therefore had mimosas in the morning, and had another glass in the afternoon...

We decided to be really romantic and clean the house.. Whitney even re-arranged and made a 'bar' in our kitchen which she is very happy about.. ah.. married life!
