We are going to Cancún this week for our anniversary!!!
The truth is, we’ve never been that great at celebrating our wedding anniversary. That in itself is hard to understand, as I am a girl who likes to celebrate. I don’t mean that we should have trips or anything super fancy (like this time – yay!), but that somehow, every year, it sneaks up on us.
One time, we were brushing our teeth in the bathroom, getting ready for bed, and Alex’s parents call. With a mouth full of bubbles, I answer “hawo?” and then I hear this very excited cheer on the other side: “Happy Anniversary!!!!!” Alex and I both looked at each-other, a little embarrassed. His parents could not believe we didn’t even know that day was our anniversary…
That is the level when I say we’re not great at it. We’re really not great.
This time, however, just out of the blue, for no particular reason, on our 17th wedding anniversary – we are going to Mexico!!!! 5 days of sun, beach, champagne, and bliss.

We’re all together at our dining room table, and he skips out searching for headphones. I immediately apologize for the music I’m playing and offer to change the playlist. He says “It’s not you babe, it’s just your awful taste in music” – sad but true 🙂
Well, so much for being “connected” 😉

aka Vancouver Opera – part 2
So when I found out that one of this years’ Operas was going to be Madama Butterfly, I almost lost it. I was so excited! I shared with Alex, I shared with Dominick, I shared with the dog! I would have shared with anyone who rang the doorbell!
A bout an hour later, i was working on my computer an I see Alex looking so relieved…
Me: What’s going on?
Alex: I see you have a date to go to the Opera…
Me: Yessss!! Alex [note: Alex my friend not my husband] loves the opera and we decided to go together!
Alex (looking sooooooooo relieved): I went to search online to see about tickets to take you, but then i got distracted reading your blog… I am so glad you found someone to go with!!
The poor soul was going to endure 3 hours of torture (to him) just to make my wish come true!! Aw! That’s love!6a00d8341c89ee53ef019b01a66b2b970c

I am running on the treadmill at home and he comes in:
Alex: how long have you got left?
Me: 10 minutes
Alex: ok
10 minutes later…
Me: you made my dinner! Thank you!
That’s why he asked me how long I would be… NOT because he needed something.

Waiting for erykah badu at the orpheum. @tangibleint picked me up from work, took me for dinner, and then to the concert. The only problem is that he looks amazing and smells good. Me? My hair says it all 😩

So I don’t need a reason per se, but here’s a cool thing th
at happened. Alex got us dinner reservations at Black & Blue, which I love, plus knowing I would only eat protein for the next few days, this was of course the perfect spot. Then he got us tickets for the Erykah Badu show at the orpheum in Vancouver. Wow!
When Alex and I first got back together, I had a tape (yes, cassette tape) of Erykah Badu that a friend made for me. I really really liked listening to it, especially for, er, relaxing… Don’t read into this, but we listened to it a lot at the beginning of our (second) relationship. It has a very special meaning.
Here’s a little bit of Erykah, so you can share in the feeling:

And this is why I love him even more today.
