Although it was Geoffrey’s day, he didn’t care what we ended up doing, as long as we spent it together. Visiting antique and coffee shops? Check. Grabbing a quick lunch at McDonalds? Check. Coming home three times to walk the dogs? Check. Taking a drive out of town to look at acreages for sale? Check. Going out for supper with my parents? Check. Ending the night with a movie that neither one of us really wanted to see? Check. 

Like most married couples, we have our ups and downs. However, I feel so blessed to have such a sweet man in my life. I feel as if we have come a long way within the three years that we’ve been married. I love the life that we’ve carved out together. We try to live simply, making sure to care for our house, pets, and one another. We like to keep our noses to the grindstone, and remember to take the time once or twice a week and spend an evening together. Geoff doesn’t ask for much, and I hope that I don’t either. For us, simplicity is what sustains our marriage. Right now, I wouldn’t change that for anything.

Happy birthday again and again, my love. I will see you all in February!

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every waking and spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
