If you would have asked me 5 years ago what my life would look like at the age of 27, I would have described it in such a way;

I wouldn’t live in Welland still, let alone the house I bought when I was 21. I never saw myself staying here for very long, the purchase of this house was purely me making an investment rather then throwing my money away on rent. But sometimes I’m just not sure where to go? I do know my heart yearns to be somewhere else, Ive always known this. But perhaps I was waiting for that someone to go with…

I would have said I would be a mother already, but not a wife. Ive always known I wanted to be a mom one day and when I was in my early twenties, I thought for sure I would have already embarked on that journey. Im in love with the idea of shaping another life, to give my undying love and affection to another, to brush a little girls hair at night before she goes to bed, taking pride always in the fact that she is a representation of me and show her love always, in everything I do for her. Or gently tugging at little toes, laughing and playing games around the house. I think of these moments alot. Sometimes I envision hearing the pitter patter of little feet run through my house or gentle playful giggles. But perhaps I was waiting for that someone to embark on the journey of parenthood with me….

I would have never said I would be a wife. I was never one of those girls who envisioned every detail of her wedding day. I grew up in a house of 4 girls and was raised by my mother and growing up I was extremely independent. I never saw being someone’s ‘wife’ as a title I ever wanted. But perhaps I was waiting for that someone that made marriage sound beautiful…

But this ‘house’ has become our home. And one of the greatest gifts I have received in the last five years is a man who loves me in away I never knew was possible! I hate using the words “completes me”. But in a sense, he does! He was the missing puzzle piece in my life, and up until the moment fate brought us together, I didn’t realize how much of an impact another person could have on my life.

The following photos are dedicated to the love and appreciation I feel for this new title and for the man who makes wearing a ‘Mrs.’ infront of my name completely beautiful.

Love to you all,

Mrs. J Nguyen
