First wedding anniversary

Today is our first wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been a year already. Like every couple we've had our ups and downs, with some differences in culture and language those are inevitable but there's already been some great times with lots more in the pipeline. I can only wish that we continue to have a very happy and prosperous life together. Meeting my wife was the luckiest break I've ever had and being married to her makes me immensely proud and full of love and happiness. We're going to Seoul this weekend to celebrate. I can't wait.

It seems like I am always talking about and planning our future. Looking at the date I have seven months left working in Korea. The countdown is in full swing. It will be a bit of a wrench to leave - because the money is good - but it's for the best for both of us and we are very excited about or future in England together starting next year. Hopefully my work doesn't start to slide making me become a lazy presence in the classroom.

Further good news for me. After making some enquiries it turns out there was a payslip mistake for my bonus. They didn't pay me enough money for the days that I didn't use for vacation. In my next wage there will be close to 600,000won extra. Times like that you really appreciate working Korea. What a great start to October.

Congratulations on the first of many years of marriage. I'm so happy for you both. Jo and I are coming up on 8 months, and I'm amazed at how quickly the time is passing. Enjoy your time in Seoul and I look forward to hearing more about your journey and preparation to return to England.

Thank you for your very kind words. I can't believe it's been a full year already. Time truly flies so quickly when you're with someone you love.

I also look forward to seeing wherever your adventures take you in the future,

My good friend Gavin, many congratulations to you and your beautiful wife on the day of your first wedding anniversary. By coincidence today is also the anniversary of my marriage to my wonderful wife Nicollette. Five years ago today she made me the happiest man alive and now today I can look upon her with every bit as much love and attraction, and also look upon the faces of the four perfect children she has given me. I wish for your marriage all of the things you both dream of, and as I know from being your friend of old, you are a good man who deserves the very best in life. My warmest regards to you, your old friend Keiran.
