still want you : wedding anniversary video

Wedding Anniversary Shoot 16Tomorrow is the day when we will finally be celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary.

I have been blogging about this event for the last two months. Five years may not seem very long to a lot of couples, but it does for me in only the best way possible. We have done so much together in the last few years, and oddly enough, we have ended up in almost the precise circumstances as to when we were first married. It’s funny how life circles back around without you even realizing it.

Friends, here is our newest wedding video. We took comparable photographs to our initial set, and added both new and old to the slideshow. Seeing both concurrent with one another makes me a bit sad. If only I could keep that youth with the wisdom that I’ve learned.

The music is by Brandon Flowers, of course, since I wouldn’t have fallen in love with Geoffrey if it wasn’t for him. Feel free to watch his music video here. It’ll help you understand our own silly actions. :-)))

Have a great weekend! Make sure to check back on Tuesday, since I have a huge blogging surprise for you guys! Like MASSIVE!

all these things that i’ve done.

while this blog is such a fantastic way to reach out to my followers, discover new friends and faces, be inspired by other wonderful bloggers and their own creations, i would like to dedicate more time towards the hello scarlett store so that i can make it as successful as possible. beginning in september, i will only be posting three days a week rather than five. however, this change will only be a temporary one. i will be back to blogging more regularly when i feel as if the store is well on its merry little way. :-)

because this will be the last music post for awhile, i am choosing a song by a band that has literally altered my life. in 2008 i graduated from university with a three year bachelour of arts honours degree. with no career in mind but with a longing for some change and some traveling, i moved to switzerland to become a nanny for four small children. while i was there, i discovered the killers. now they were already quite popular, but because i try to avoid popular music, i had not heard any of their songs up until that point. i was hooked. i would have their music playing on my ipod as i rode my bike among the alps, walked to and from work, took the rail around the country, and, as it went nearly every night, laying in bed while trying not to feel homesick. in the end, my homesickness won and i went home a short time later.

i returned to university for one more year in order to complete a four year degree. on the first day of my last semester, in walked *g*. being a cold january morning in canada, he, of course, was wearing a big winter coat. his face was the first thing that i focused on. i swore that he was the twin brother of the frontman for the killers, brandon flowers. *g* also noticed me that day, and for both of us, it was love at first sight. we became friends that month, and shortly after were married.

now obviously it was his personality that won me over in the end, but if it were not for me moving overseas, stumbling upon this band, feeling perpetually homesick, and returning home and to university, my life would have turned out to be completely different. maybe that wouldn’t have been so bad, but for where i am now, i feel so blessed and so lucky to be where i am in this very moment. 

every decision a person makes effects their future in one way or another. so while brandon flowers climbs and sings on top of the piano, while the audience roars, and while sparks fly about the stage, i hope that you also can reflect on your life choices and feel fulfilled. i certainly know that i feel that way about “all the things that i’ve done.”
