Mutual Weirdness

“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” ~ Dr. Seuss

You have no idea how happy it makes me to see elderly couples together – I seriously get all teary eyed. Ever since I met Thomas, I knew that I wanted to grow old with him, and be exactly like the couple I saw leaving the grocery store yesterday – he carried the bag and helped her along, she supported him when he got a little wobbly, and they even had a small little argument before putting the bag into the trunk. I watched them, and I’m sure if they noticed, they would have been weirded out, but I couldn’t help it. It made me so happy.

Four years ago today, I married my best friend.
Each and every day I am so thankful that Thomas and I found each other. We are the perfect blend of boring and weird and he puts up with my clumsiness and I adore his quirkiness. I never get tired of spending time with him, even if it’s just reading our books beside each other – I love cheesy romance novels and he loves his sci-fi adventure stories.

I am so proud to be his wife and not that I’m rushing or anything, but I am looking forward to being that cute old couple helping each other carry groceries to the car.


Last fall, we got all dressed up in our wedding attire again and had a portrait session with the amazing photographer, and friend, Barbara-Ann Studios.
