Which brings me to one thing I’ve been hinting at for months now – I’m in looooooove! His identify is Thomas, and I couldn’t have sketched a greater accomplice for those who’d given me a clean piece of paper and a Sharpie and mentioned, “draw the man of your dreams.” While I may listing the numerous the explanation why Thomas is a superb man (he is superb wanting and a formidable soccer participant!), what I like most about him is how he makes me really feel once we’re collectively: protected, safe, revered, cherished. He can also be loopy about Mazen, and Thomas’s household has been so fantastic and welcoming to Mazen and me.
And nothing has modified <3 Marrying him was one of the best choice of my life.
I additionally can not imagine that Birch is just some weeks shy of how previous Mazen was at our wedding ceremony!
In reality, I can see Birch on this image. While they every have their very own very completely different personalities, they’re comparable in lots of sibling kind of methods. And they love one another a lot.

As is custom, we ventured over to The Clifton to re-live recollections of our wedding ceremony. The climate was very a lot the identical because it was in 2017. And this time we took the boys alongside!

We ended up having dinner there too, which was not our plan however made sense given that everybody was hungry and so they had a desk on the terrace. And they despatched us celebratory champs on the finish of the meal!
The boys performed gorilla video games within the backyard the place we had been married. Appropriate.

Gus bought a shower straight away!
One of the facilities that Thomas added throughout the renovation was out of doors scorching water for the hose, so Gus loved a pleasant spa experince and nobody was chilly! (That can be nice for filling up the kiddie pool within the springtime too!)
Birch bought a lesson in canine washing and likewise a lesson in hammering as we end up the trash can storage deck.
