Sorry Shania.

It’s been a long time and the whole “no one needs to know” thing worked for nearly 20 years, but the time has come.

The jig is up.

Everyone needs to know what a sweetheart my husband is.

EVERYONE!

We have weathered a number of storms and we even had a few close calls with actual tornadoes when we lived in Austin, Texas (Stay weird, y’all! It’s so beautiful on you.), but we have been together for almost 20 years and even though we both would like to change approximately one million things about each other on a daily basis (as every married couple will NOT tell you – Hah! Hi! Have you met me? We tell the truth ’round here. All you have to do is ask or not ask, as it were.) we wouldn’t change a single thing. 

On our first date we went to the movies to see “Twister”. Yup. 

I own a copy on Blu-ray. OH YES I DO!

You want proof?

No problem.

Ta daa!

See? (Also, please look at that gorgeous blue sky! That is happening in real life right now in Bedford, Nova Scotia. I am so thankful. We were beginning to forget what blue sky looked like ’round here. Hopefully this is the start of summer v. 2.0 because v. 1.0 has been a doozie thus far. Time to upgrade!)

Anyway, where was I? Oh yes! First dates. This was ours and though to some people it might seem like a really bad omen to go to a disaster movie about a divorcing couple on a first date – and furthermore to move to a city in a state where actual tornadoes happen – clearly we fear nothing, because it’s been great!

Twister will always have a very special place in my heart.

Consider this song. We did almost nothing in it in the traditional sense of having the “whole darn thing”, but we have a little girl, a little boy, a tall, dark (haired), handsome man and we are all still busy making big plans. We have thus far survived the storms of life – though we almost never go chasing them on purpose – and we are happy.

What more could we possibly want?

Okay. Okay. Maybe, if you are pressing, we would all love a little Benji (or Lassie, or Corky, or WishBone, or Murray) to call LeRoy, but on that point, no one needs to know right now.

  1. Awww… great post Peady! Thanks for all of the fun times. Looking forward to the adventures ahead! Glad we don’t fear the mountains in the distance. Now, about those one million things that we would change on a given day… Nope, you’re right- best not to change a single thing! ;-> Hee hee!

    • Thanks, Lovey! 🙂 We’re doing okay.

      Me too! Might as well make the most of them, right? We can go and dread them or go and conquer them. One of them steals time and happiness and one of them has a reward of cookies on the other side. Total no brainer. 😀

      Re: those one million things. You are a wise, wise, man. 😉

      Mwah! :*

    • Thank you, Jason. 🙂 I have to re-watch it one of these nights. I really loved Jamie Gertz’s character. That whole side story about the divorce was highly enjoyable. 😀
