No.3 in my heart, No.1 in my life?

To my dear husband, I have been thinking about my ex-boyfriends. And when I do, I allow myself to also imagine how life would have been like if I had ended up with either of them.

Largely because I didn’t take into proper account how little time I have on my hands with a toddler on those hands and no time at all in the […] Read more…

3 days to The Big Move

At one point, it did seem like we were never going to move. But here we are, three days to The Big Move. Three-and-a-half years of marriage and five moves later, this is by far the toughest move yet. We will literally be moving into an almost blank unit, since a lot of our furniture […] Read more…
