My Days Are Numbered


Today my husband and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary.  Like any couple we’ve had our issues… my problems settling in the Netherlands, his Lego addiction, my late night mosquito rages… but one thing that has never changed is our love for each other.  Well, MY love for HIM I should say.   I’m not so sure about his love for me anymore. He worries me.  Like, remember that time he scared the bejesus out of me in his sleep? or the other time? I wonder if that was a foreshadowing of things to come.  I’ve also always been suspicious ...

Nine Years and Still Kickin’!


This photo of me and my  husband was taken almost 9 years ago in Paris.  We felt so grown up but look at us, we were babies!  I’d just turned 25 the week before and I was a wife!   We were so cute though, still in that stage where we called each other Mr. and Mrs. and giggled every time we said husband or wife. I loved Xander so much back then and I really believed that it was impossible for me to love him any more than I did at that moment.  We were newlyweds for petes sake, and ... Read More »

Eight Whole Years

Today I am celebrating my 8 year anniversary with my husband.   When I say celebrating I really mean it.   Not in the partying sense but in the way that I truly recognize how lucky I am to have him in my life and can’t imagine my life without him. Our marriage hasn’t been perfect.  There have been strains along the way and there have been times when I think we both wondered if we were going to make it.  None of those times had anything to do with not loving each other though, it was always circumstances like my culture ...

Where Are The Search Parties?

I think I remember saying quite a while ago that if I disappear to send out search parties.. where the hell are they? .. and here I thought you people cared about me! This is probably the biggest gap I’ve ever had in my blogging but every time I thought about writing one I went “Meh.. I’ll do it later”. That’s pretty much a common theme with me with almost everything in my life. Dishes, dusting, school, blogging .. hell, it’s a good thing breathing comes naturally or I’d be fucked. So I had my 30th Birthday and it was ... Read More »

Four Years

Yesterday was our 4th anniversary and it was such a great day. We got up and had a nice breakfast then we all hopped in the car and drove up to Baddeck. We just walked around and had a look in all the little craft/gift shops. Went for a drive around the bay. It was a nice sunny day but kind of windy so the air was still chilly. Later we drove up to the Gaelic College to have a look around and visit their gift shop.After our driving around and bit of sight seeing we stopped at a restaurant ... Read More »
