This blog post is dedicated to my baby brother, A, and his wife of (just over) a week, E.

In August Hubs and I celebrated being husband and wife for a whopping 10 years. I’m still not sure where the time has gone. Since then and especially with my baby brother’s wedding last weekend, I’ve been thinking about our marriage, how it’s changed, how we’ve changed and what I’ve learnt over these 10 years.… Read more
