love birds

Aunt Hilda used to call us love birds. I was 23 when we got married and I was totally and completely over-the-top in love.  We used to have a silent signal to tell each other “I love you” when we were in a crowd. I knew in my heart that we were soul mates – meant to be. Young, silly, sticky sweet love.

Things have changed. Two children, parenting, career changes and life decisions tends to tone things down just a little. We haven’t used that signal in years. My definition of true love has shifted, over the last 20 years. Now, I am fortunate to witness him be an incredible Dad to his children, a fun playful Uncle to his nieces and nephews and still a loving partner to me. I love how kind he is and thoughtful of others around him. I love that he still makes me laugh and sometimes I am the only one laughing at his jokes.  (Sometimes I am the only one rolling my eyes at his jokes too). Being with him still makes me happy.

summer is here

Summer is truly, finally, here. Friends from Ottawa came to visit and we pretty much went straight from the airport to our paradise in Hants Harbour.

The lupins are out! Love the pinks and purples!

We walked over to Caplin cove and were skimming stones.

We had a fire on our beach.

Small and wonderful things. Summer is really here.
