three years.

three years ago today i got married to my favourite bearded guy in the whole world. 

i just want to say for the record that ian is an amazing husband. no, seriously, he's better than yours. he's always cleaning and he does the laundry. he chops my carrots every night for my lunch and he pretends to think all of my opinions are interesting and thoughtful (they're not). he never laughs at my jokes but i know that it's for my own good because my humor-related ego is already huge enough. he's also a real looker, obviously. 

as anyone who's ever been in a relationship can relate to, we generally just sit around gazing lovingly into each others' eyes. 

happy anniversary!

those of you who have met me know that i have two sisters. you probably also know that i love my sisters a LOT. when i was much younger i used to get a bit insecure when people commented on how much i love my sisters (how much i talk about them) but then i got a bit older and realized that it's cool to like your family!

anyway, all this is to say that one of those buttheads has a birthday today!

ashley is hilarious, sweet, considerate, and empathetic. she is an amazing baker and she looks like an angel when she sleeps. she's a really good dancer and she really knows how to have a good time. she loves sushi and she doesn't let anyone boss her around. she is an extremely hard worker and she loves to take naps. above all, she's a complete hoot and she's really good at showing her love.

happy birthday asspee.

hey ladies! happy mother's day. 

this cute toot is my mom:

she is 4'11" and she's wonderful. she's brave and hilarious and generous and strong. she tells the best stories and she's really good at pulling out loose teeth. she spends all of her time traveling the world like it's no big deal and she's not afraid to ask for her poached eggs in a very particular way at restaurants. she makes extremely delicious christmas cookies and even though she insists that "rude is never funny", she knows in her heart that rude is always funny. 

happy mother's day, mum! your daughters think you're the best.

spring has sprung!

hi friends! 

i'm not sure that i'm your friend anymore because i'm so terrible at my blog. i'm sorry. i know that it's not a real excuse, but i've really been swamped at work and it's taking over my life. i hope you can forgive me and resume blowing kisses in my general direction. 

here's a big update: it's spring! things have finally been melting and it's getting really warm. sometimes it's even above zero! 

also, we get to see all of the nice stuff that was under the snow:


we had to put tin foil on our bedroom window because the sun rises so early (around 3:00 am) and doesn't set until late. soon we won't get any darkness at all. i'm still not accustomed to the darkness caused by the tin foil, though. sometimes i feel like a teenage boy dragging myself out of bed in the morning. 

other than that, there's not a whole lot happening with us. i've been eating a lot of grapes the last few days and ian got a sunburn on his eyeballs. want to see it? okay.
