I meant to schedule this post before I left -we were in Bangkok on our 11/11/11 and we were at a gemstone factory seeing how precious stones are made into jewellery and Chef bought me a diamond ring!! - and but I

I actually do have all my fingers it looks like I am missing a few bits

didn't want to not post it. So its late, (Kate reminded me because its her 12 today) he bought is because it perefectly matched my wedding/engagement rings - it has 9 diamionds- not 11. So this post is late but still very importnat.

Today, on the 11/11/11 at approximately 11pm exactly 11 years ago I fell in love with Chef. 

Eleven years since "the declaration."
Eleven years since you stole my heart.
Eleven years of you cooking for me
Eleven years of me loving that you cook for me

Eleven years of cackles and hugs
Eleven years of dancing in the kitchen
Eleven years of in- jokes
Eleven years of morning coffees shared
Eleven years of friendship and love.
Eleven years of staying up late
Eleven years of river swimming
Eleven years of crossword agitation
Eleven years of silly names
Eleven years of growing older
Eleven years of  waking up next to you.
Eleven years of coping with my impatience
Eleven years of picking up your dirty socks
Eleven years of fun love and laughter.
Eleven years since Zac and I fell in love with you.

Happy Anniversary Mr.
