today husband watched a bollywood film, called kabhi alvida na kehna (translation: never say goodbye). husband is funnily enough a huge sucker for 3 to 4 hour long bollywood films. it’s up there on his list of favourite-ways-to-relax. i’m not complaining, there’s something about curling up on the couch for a bollywood film that takes me back to the simpler days of childhood.
the plot is (in one sentence) about the ups and downs of relationships, and the really sad paths broken relationships can take.
once the movie ended, i started to get a stream of really sweet texts from husband. and that’s when i had my new revelation – if ever am in dire need of hearing some voluntary sweet nothings from my man, all i need to do is pop in one of these babies!
but really… is there anything sweeter than hearing your lover profess things like i love that you’re my wife, you’re so beautiful, i love the security i have in our relationship, and i promise to fight for us especially during our downs.
and then we got to have a wonderful chat about our future dreams for our marriage… suffice to say, this was a moment that definitely made today a great day in my life 🙂
i have been in major transition.
i feel like i live my life split between two cities that are 3 hours away. and i am so excited for the commute to end! we have our house, we’ve painted our walls, and now we’re furniture shopping and decorating 😀
while it is all exciting, i am also wrapping up law school which means… weekends spent working on papers and exam outlines in the library. not (very) fun, except for my excellent friends who keep me sane and save tables and seats for me!
i find my sanity in repeating the end is near again and again. i realize those words can be ominous, but over here, it’s bittersweet … and becoming sweeter!
one weekend i went home to toronto and scoured almost twenty different furniture shops with husband. it was fascinating to see the range of designs and styles…and prices! despite it being tiring at times, we were blessed with great weather, and enticed to get out of bed for some ikea breakfast and swedish meatballs haha! more often than not, i would stop in my tracks in the middle of the store, glance over at husband and realize… this is it! this is my dreams coming true, setting up a home and life and family with this man! i think we both felt it… and would randomly reach out to squeeze each others hands in excitement.
oh, and quite shamefully, i will admit that we ended each day of furniture shopping with a big plate of nachos. who knew that’s what we would be craving after a day of looking at furniture. no complaints here though 😉
