In Thanksgiving

Why I Love My Husband

He is genuinely a good man.
He is a wickedly talented musician.
He is smart.
He is predictable.
He is silly when no one else is around.
He votes.
He is pragmatic.
He is wildly spontaneous.
He is driven.
He is hot.
He tolerates my crazy. Sometimes he even embraces it.
When I am with him I feel respected, loved and safe.

On this day in 2005 I got on the BC Ferries "Queen of Capilano" for the 17 minute ride to Snug Cove on Bowen Island, just off West Vancouver, BC. During that 17 minutes, Joe allowed me to make an honest man of him and enter into the legal contract of civil marriage with him.

I knew it was a good choice then. I think it was a great choice now. I am so thankful that we're together.

My love for you is turned all the way up to 11, baby. Happy Anniversary. It's been 7 years and I'm not itchy at all.

Sadly, my paternal grandmother died two years ago today. My thoughts are also with my dad and his two brothers.

I might add that it kind of sucks when a beloved family member dies on the happiest day of your life.

Today I am thankful for my stable health, my chosen and DNA families, the future and for having hope.
