6 years

26 Sep 2012|

6 years ago, my life changed forever. 6 years ago, MC changed my life forever. How did he do it? He gently placed his lips on mine and sealed our fate with a kiss. 6 years ago, on a Tuesday evening, the 26th September 2006, MC swept me off my feet and so our ‘happily ever after’ began…
