Happy 34th Birthday to my Husband

0


Dear Steven,

Today is your birthday — HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I decided I would give you a homemade card again this year — you know, something from the heart. However, we both know that I can’t bake (like at ALL — remember that “rainbow” cake I made? They were kind of flat…and fucked up…) and I’m certainly not talented with a glue gun either — so my medium of choice for this wondrous gift is going to be words!

Which is almost ironic, because you are not a fan of words. At least, you’re not a fan of the long winded text messages I send (and yes, it really does take five text messages in a row to tell you how my day is going).

However, I consider it my duty as your wife to drive you a little batty by forcing you to read several paragraphs about how much you mean to me. Besides, it’s good to hear these things. I think hearing “I love you” on its own all the time and not really getting into the why’s is kind of sad. The why’s should be celebrated. You should know the why’s; you should know how much you mean to me, so I’m going to tell you…okay? Okay.

But the thing is…I don’t think there are enough words in the English dictionary to illustrate just how much you mean to me. Not only are you an incredible father, but you work so hard to provide for us.
In addition; you have loved me in a way that no one else ever has. You have all of my heart. You have shown me passion and adoration, commitment and strength. You make me feel breathless; drunk on love.

I consider you to be my best friend; my teammate. My comrade in arms. You’re still the first person I think about when I wake up in the morning, and the last one I think about before I fall asleep. One of my most favorite places to be is in your arms. Even after telling you all of this…I still feel like it falls short. It doesn’t fully encompass the depth of what you mean to me.
Well, I guess two words just might come close; always, and everything. This world is a better place because you are in it.

Love Always,

Amber

We Only Fall in Love with 3 People in Our Lifetime - Each One for a Specific Reason.

0


Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning.” -Unknown

It’s been said that we really only fall in love with three people in our lifetime.

Yet, it’s also believed that we need each of these loves for a different reason.

Often our first love fulfills the dreams of our youth and fulfills our idealistic belief of what we expect love to look like  – just like the fairy tales.

This love fulfills our need to live up to society’s expectations. We jump into this love headfirst believing that this person will be our only love (even if it does not feel quite right) and convince ourselves that this is how love should look like. This love focuses more on how others perceive us versus how we actually feel.

The emotions and young hormones will have you believe that no other love could ever exist for you. You will want to spend every waking moment together and your friends will support this choice of love for your life as well.

To the world around you, this love will seem like the perfect choice and many will be envious…until it ends, and it will end abruptly. Unfortunately, those unending emotions will end and you will wonder why you ever loved this person in the first place. With the magnitude in which you loved, you will discard and move on with scars that fade quickly. This love, although stronger than all existence, at the moment of climax, was just there to show you what love really feels like. It’s time to move into deeper waters.


The second love is when shit gets real. It’s called the “hard love”. This is where we delve deep into our sexuality and our desires. This is the love that teaches us lessons about ourselves and what we need to feel loved in any relationship. This love brings with it great pain – the pain of loss, deceit and lies.

During this love we believe we are doing things differently, but we are not.  We tend to hold steadfast to this love because this relationship is different from the last one. However, this one is the one where we will grow. This is the one where we will experience pain. And this is the love where we will realize what we really need out of our next relationship.

With this kind of love, trying to make it work becomes more important than whether it actually should.

It’s the love that we wished was right.

 Most of the time, when the second love doesn’t work --it leaves the deepest of scars. The good news? You’ve learnt a TON about who you are and what you really want in life.


And the third is the love we never see coming. When you meet this person, you’d never consider that you’d end up with them.

Perhaps you’re not looking for a relationship, or you think that you’re personalities would clash, but when the connection ignites, it will take off like a lightning strike that neither one of you are prepared for.

The third love will keep coming around. You will keep crossing paths no matter how much you try to get away from this magnetic feeling. Time will be no object of concern for the third love. If it’s true, they will feel the pull just as powerfully as you do. And it will just feel right.

When you start dating, it just fits. Your personalities bounce off each other like a trampoline. You compliment each other’s strengths and weakness and you both feel like you take on the world.

It just feels right. And so it should. You’ve been through struggles, bad breakups, and people who have just plain tried to take advantage of you.

But now, you know yourself better than ever, and most importantly, you know deep in your soul that you want to spend the rest of your life with this truly special person.

This is the love that keeps knocking on our door regardless of how long it takes us to answer.

It’s the love that just feels right.

The one we never see coming.
The one that actually lasts.
The one that shows us why it never worked out before.


You found parts of me I didn’t know existed and in you I found a love I no longer believed was real.” ~ Unknown

Bring your own cup! - 7-11

Yesterday and today was "Bring Your Own Cup Day" at 7-11. If you're unfamiliar, it's just a day where you can bring in whatever cup you want from home and fill it up for $1.50.

While setting up a rad game of Raiders of the North Sea, my family and I decided to totally hit up 7-11 first and took advantage of their diabetes inflicting deal and brought our biggest liquid holding type cuppy things that we had.

Lets just say it did make for a pretty fun game lol   And no.. the baby didn't get any slurpie lol



Ikea Kallax

We finally caved and bought a small Kallax (  ) for dirt cheap off of Kijiji. We didn't have much choice once we started receiving our Arcadia Quest stuff. There was just no room for it.. plus our game cupboard was on the brink of buckling.

This is the cupboard that used to hold our games:



The new board game space:


What a mess:




I'm not really feeling the games being in there horizontally but I've already switched them vertically and back a few times. The games don't fill the squares entirely and it gets under my skin the most when vertical. It probably wont stay this way for long. Maybe the next time I play what feels like a game of Tetris and adjust them vertically, I'll take a picture and make a poll to see which way other people think is better.
