Scott and I got married eight years ago two days ago. And we forgot. My mom called me that morning to wish us a happy anniversary. Oh.
I don’t write about my family too much here. They get honorable mentions, but not whole posts dedicated to them. This blog is more of a place for me and my scattered thoughts. However today I want to say a little something about Scott..
He is smart, funny, and one of the good guys. He needs space, suffers from blackberry addiction, sees the big picture, and is my best friend.
We met and liked who we met. A few weeks later we were thrown into a life we didn’t expect, didn’t want, but got anyway. Dating came later. Much, much later. We were fast forwarded through life. We couldn’t slow down and hit that pause button until two years after the “I think I might really like you.”
We got married and through long conversations, fights, laughter, kids, chasing dreams, risking everything, and doing a lot of living together I still choose him. We are opposites and never have I been more aware of that than I have this last year, but being opposites works for us. We make it work.
There is no one I would rather do all of this – this meaning life, marriage, dream – with than him. I love him, but more importantly I really, really like him.
This is a store found in Granville Island – a place in Vancouver that I love. And I mean love. It is all things paper and all things associated with paper. Every kind of pen, notebook, journal, decorative paper, card you could dream of. It’s a dangerous place to be in. You’ll suddenly want to book bind and buy cards for every occasion. I don’t need a Hanukkah card, but it’s there and look how cute it is…….this place is like that. It is all about buying things you don’t need. I have a buffer of a whole lot of traffic and a 45 minute drive which prevents me from visiting too often. But when I visit….watch out!
