4 Years Ago Today...

... At this time (11:45am), I think Cynthia was photographing us at the Cathedral on Tache
... I was already exhausted, and the show hadn't even started
... Nicholas and I were all smiles and giggles all day long
... I felt like a million bucks, and Nicholas was the most attractive I'd ever seen him
... I was surrounded by all my favourite people in the world, less a few...
... I was hungry most of the day
... I was astonished at what we had accomplished as a family
... I was waiting, and waiting
... I was emotionally spent by the end of the ceremony
... I laughed until I cried at my father's speech
... I danced the night away
... I was married

It still feels like yesterday. I hope I feel this was for many years to come :)

Happy Baby, Happy Dog, Happy Me

Aali, Neko and I were finally able to escape to the cabin this week. I was a little worried about taking baby and dog by myself, but it proved to be easier than I expected. And I'm SO glad I did.

It was just a couple of days, but beautiful ones. Just enough heat, sun and breeze, and good cabin food. We actually got to float in the water and sun bathe for a while and it reminded me of simpler days as a kid when all I had to worry about was getting a sunburn.

I feel so relaxed, and Aali is happy, tired in a good way and a little more browner,  Neko is totally flaked out somewhere in the house after getting a lot of good exercise, and this rainy day is a nice break of the sun and heat.

I hope we can do it all again soon.

I Secretly Think Aali Is A Baby Genius

This did actually happen: I was washing a few dishes while Aali was playing in our living room. She will often find a remote control for the TV and push the buttons, and because the "On" button is big and red, she tends to turn the TV on and off. So, I heard this happening and looked over to see she had turned the TV on and was surfing channels which then stopped precisely on a cartoon!
It's not a joke, this is what I saw! Haha!

I think she's smarter than she lets on....
