Happy 7th Marriage Anniversary!! + Win Glitter Glam Vouchers

Dear Poogeo,

Today is our 7th marriage anniversary!!! Sometimes we get too busy or distracted and hardly have time for a proper conversation. Here's some things I wanted to tell you before I forget...

We've been together for 12 years but today is the day we made a lifelong commitment to one another to become husband and wife ♥ I still remember the first day we met in your dorm living room. It's such a long time back, but it also feels like it just happened yesterday.

They say opposites attract and maybe so. I'm quite the extrovert, while you are more of the introvert. I like details and planning, while you like to wing it {and it sometimes drives me crazy!}. I live to eat while you eat to live. I'm the night owl while you're a morning bird. If I had a free day to do whatever I want, I'd probably just want to sleep in bed.. while your dream day would be to work out in the gym (*^▽^)/

It's not bad really, as I think if we were too similar life would be pretty boring! And as we get older, our different tastes and characteristics have somehow rubbed off on each other so that we kinda become "same-same" haha.

I sometimes look back fondly to the time when life was much simpler and it was just us living in Australia. Now, there's so much more responsibilities, stress and chores to take care of which I know makes both of us weary. But unlike me, you often trudge on faithfully with little complaints and much positivity.

This is really something I need to learn from you. 

I know I don't say it often enough but thank you. Our relationship hasn't always been easy, but it's been so worthwhile. I've grown and learnt so much from you, and it gives me great comfort knowing that you're there taking care of me and the family.

You're an awesome hubby. Sorry I can't be the best wife, but I hope you'll always be there for me, no matter where life brings us or if I piss you off too much, which I know I do sometimes for being such a grouch or unreasonable and impatient person. 

Lil Pumpkin is so blessed to have you as her daddy too, and I really want you to know that. I know sometimes you feel bad for not giving her enough time, or when you are harsh towards her.. but also remember that not every dad will drop his kid off at school every morning, ferry his kid to her different enrichment classes, take time off work to bring his kid to the playgrounds, read to his kid or help his kid with her school work almost every night.

I'm really happy that you are mine. Happy 7th anniversary, dear!!

Love always,

P.S. You can find out why we call each other "Poogeo" and "Chubbinity" in my post here for 11 Things You Didn't Know about Hubby & Me (☆‿☆)

Nothing planned today and it is usual work-day for us... however, we'll be having a little celebratory staycation this weekend that I'm really looking forward to seeing how we enjoyed the one at Fullerton Hotel so much!!

Even prepared Lil Pumpkin and my outfits a month ago for our late anniversary dinner on Saturday night haha.

It's the Meadow Leaves Printed Dress from our fave store for matchy-matchy mummy-daughter outfits, Glitter Glam. From their latest collection, I saw it on their display window when I was walking past their store one day and immediately fell in love with the soft pastel colours and printed leaves design that reminds me of autumn!!

This A-line dress is really soft and light and although there's no inner lining, it's not translucent at all. Looks really gorgeous on its own, or when I want to be "twinning" with Lil Pumpkin. It has an adult top in the same print as well but you know, I always prefer dresses heh.

To help me celebrate our anniversary with my readers and friends, Glitter Glam has kindly offered prizes for a special 7th Anniversary Giveaway!! How awesome is that!! I would really love for you use this opportunity to get to know this local brand and understand why I adore it so much.

Hello! Happy 7th Anniversary to your blog! :)
My dream anniversary gift would be a sweet, romantic surprise with a bouquet of roses. E.g if my partner knows I need a wallet, him buying a wallet in my favourite colour/pattern/style would be a very sweet gift that's from his heart. :)
