“This week, show us a photo that says ‘achievement’ to you: people meeting a long-worked-for goal. Something tangible you’ve created. A view from a journey you’ve completed, or the stating point of a journey not yet made or a project you hope to finish. We look forward to being inspired!”
For me, this photo of my wife and I, taken only a couple of days ago, represents two amazing achievements. One is the visit to Cambodia and Angkor Wat, pictured behind us. This trip is one of those once in a lifetime achievements and a place I have wanted to visit ever since I became aware of its existence.
But secondly and more importantly this photo was taken just before we celebrated our first anniversary. It has been an astonishing and wonderful year of married life together, full of love, laughs and travels. I am extremely fortunate to have at last found this remarkable, warm, intelligent, absolutely peerless, soul mate and even more fortunate that she had the requisite devil-may-care attitude to accept my marriage proposal.
