you + me . . .








it feels like it was yesterday. fresh out of high school. taking a tour of the university campus. beneath the shade of the towering pine trees. i was there to study architecture. you about to start an arts degree.  drinking cheap beer and eating hot chip rolls. young and free. hardly a care in the world.    

then in the blink of an eye we are here. almost two decades later. in this little piece of paradise. we're responsible for three exquisite humans. funny-crazy-gorgeous little people that we created. pets and bills and grown up stuff. exhausted and happy to the very core. living a life we always dreamed of. not without its challenges and its struggles. but more than we could have ever wished for.  

: :

so grateful. for the life i have with you. for the journey so far. for all the adventures to come. 
happy anniversary sambo xo

  10. It freaks me out all the time - how far we've come and how much we've achieved in such a small space of time. Mostly just how wonderful it is to create our own version of the 'good life'. Every turn is our own. x
