15 Years

Oshean and I were married.

(Christmas Day 2010)
It was a leap year.
He was in Med School. I was in my first year of clerking for a Law firm.
We'd been together almost 4 years (give or take a break-up here and there...)

One evening, mid January, I said "Hey, it's a leap year. Would you like to marry me?"
He said, "Sure...why not" (he's romantic like that)

We decided the end of the month (since it would be an easy date to remember...practical if nothing else, that's us).

Two weeks later, we were legally married in a courthouse, with a judge and our two witnesses.

A year later we had the big wedding (as always envisioned by our parents)...with all the bells and whistles
...but that's a different post.

Happy Anniversary, Osh.
Here's to another great 15 years.

Skype me, 'kay?

I may be the last person on earth to do it... ( Dad had it before I did )
But I finally got Skype

Speaking of my Dad, our first Skype convo went like this:

him: can you see me
me : yeah I can see you
him: you're not moving
me : well, I'm tired
him: hello? hello?
me : yes, hi Dad
him: can you hear me?
me : yeah I hear you fine
him: can you still see me
me : yup...
him: but I can't see you
me : trust me, it's for the best...
him: hello? hello?
(repeat for the next 20 minutes)

Of course the kids are enjoying it tons...
Seeing family in South Africa, and other parts...

And doing uber-cool stuff like this:

Yeah, we rock ;)

Happy 2011

So I'm a few days late, but the sentiment is heartfelt ;)

We've been B-U-S-Y for the past few months.
We moved house; changed schools for the kids 3 times while in Edmonton; Hubby and his partner set up the first of their medical practices; and we've been dealing with some devastating family health issues.

Remember the store I purchased?
Well, due to everything we've had going on, and with hubby making a few trips to South Africa within the past couple months, while I played single parent in the crazy city, I've decided to put the opening on hold...temporarily.

Once we are able, as a family, to collectively catch our breath, I have every intention of seeing the opening of the store through.
Bear with me, please.

On a lighter, whiter and colder note, we've been gobsmacked with some crazy weather...

Of course, I had to try my hand at shovelling too (but only after I heard it may make me skinny...ha-ha-ha)...
I'll stick to the treadmill for now...thanks!

And with that, I'm off for now.
I'm hoping everyone has a  healthy and happy 2011.
Personally, I'm going to try hard to keep up my blog...because when I read through it a few weeks ago, some of the older pics and memories made me smile.
And that's something, no?
