we had the perfect timing,

April 10: ryan and i
we're (just) ordinary people.

We're going to be okay right? Hell ya.
It's still surreal. I married the boy that I fell in love with in high school - I kinda always knew it was going to be him. He finished culinary school & indulged himself in the industry. I've never met anyone who's more passionate about the way Ryan feels about food. The next few years came a bit backwards. We found out it was going to be us plus one, so we got engaged & tied the knot. After our A turned one, we bought ourselves a lovely little home. I finally finished my undergrad degree in commerce & started my "career". I love the little life we've created. (our dreams are made of real things)

Feeling all sorts of nostalgia. There's just something about the beginning of warmer weather that brings you back to those days you can remember - the best days. (hands down, this is the best day I can ever imagine). Ever feel as though, your very own life could play the part in a movie? That you own trials and tribulations are those of the main characters and you're just waiting for your very own happily ever after? Or ever feel so in tune with the plot of a tv show that you swear it were mimicking the soundtrack of your life? Sometimes I feel as if I'm living vicariously through these fictional characters - that they're lives are something that I'm aspiring to be. I guess that's the magic of what producers and directors can accomplish - making us feel as though, yes - this could be possible - even for me.

I used to think that my best writing, my best words came from when I was feeling the worst. I used to think that I needed that dramatic inclination in my personal life to come to the complete realization that - well, I actually didn't need the drama at all. (I was a dreamer before you & you let me down). For me, words have always been my own escape & it was also a bonus when words were paired up with the right song that said the right words that made you feel the right mood.
Nothing can make you feel something as quickly as music can.

even the best fall down sometimes
sunshine, been keeping me up for days
hey baby, i think i wanna marry you
if we loved again, i swear i'd love you right
so don't complicate it, by hesitating
we could live through these letters or forget them altogether
when i'm hurting baby, i ain't happy baby
i'm not broke, i'm just a broken hearted man
would you lay with me and just forget the world
you are the only exception
what's wrong with being selfish?
the whole world stops and stares for a while
& you never will forget, the way you left when romeo kissed juliet
there's no combination of words i could put on the back of a postcard
if falling for you girl is crazy, then i'm going out of my mind
this is for the lovers - strictly for the lovers
