Time for a time capsule!





Next month we'll be celebrating our 1st year wedding anniversary and I've never been happier. Since becoming a Alan's wife something has settled inside me, I feel a contentment and deep happiness. I no longer feel the need to travel every year, to have big extravagant plans for my future or the non-stop social life I had before. I am completely in love. Our life is mostly just us, thats what makes us happiest, thats when we laugh the most. Al inspires me to be the person I want to be everyday, his constant encouragement, positivity and support gives me so much confidence, in myself and in our future together. 

This time in our lives could easily be seen as an in-between stage, like 'that time after our wedding but before we had kids' or seem not so important because there was no huge event or move to a different country. So I wanted to give this time, while it is just the two of us in our little married bliss bubble, some recognition.

This time is important. This time is wonderful and will never be forgotten. 

To make sure of that we've decided to make a time capsule, one that will be sealed for 10 years. Inside we'll put; the music that been our soundtrack lately, some pictures of our home, notes of the little private jokes that are making us laugh, a letter to ourselves about life right now and what we hope for our future selves, a few of the notes we've recently left around the house for each other and also a secret letter to each other that we'll only be able to read on our 11 year wedding anniversary in 2022! 

I already can't wait to open it and it's not even made yet :)

  1. Astra,
    I had to comment as it's our 10th wedding anniversary today and I cannot believe how quickly it has gone. What a fabulous idea to have a time capsule as you will forget the things that you laugh at now however the laughter gets better and so do the memories. x

    2. Ah Ashabean - "...on the day they're born" - only someone who has never been through labour could say that. :) But it is a lovely thought. I am interested to know what the soundtrack to this phase of your lives is - playlist please. xxx

    3. Haha oh yeah... forgot about the whole labour thing lol I might re-phrase that to "the month they're born" :) I'll be sure to post the playlist for you xxx
