This day. 1994. ‘Yes’ the answer. ‘Will you be my girlfriend?’ the question.
And the rest as they say is history.
It all began with shy glances across the room at a birthday party. Followed by a date to see Rebel without a Cause at the local Picture House. A mix tape made for an anxious train journey. Her postcard. His note though the door to welcome her back.
Love in the 90s was punctuated with handwritten letters, fish finger sandwiches and entire days spent listening to music and talking. Love in 2014 is photos of their son sent between phones to brighten work days. Talking in the dark after midnight when an entire day has passed with barely a glimpse of each other. Smiling silently at one another as their son plays on the floor between them. 20 years on, with a new understanding of what it means to make each other happy, love is counting their blessings and still enjoying the occasional fish finger sandwich!
