Happy Anniversary!


4 years!

My husband & I have been married for 4 years. He’s my best friend and the best First Mate a Captain could hope to have. I’m so lucky to have met him.
Reflecting on these last 4 years I’ve come to some conclusions: if we can survive a baby and hammering out a financial plan, then we can survive just about anything. I’m not really sure what to write. How many times can you say via the internet, “I Love You!”? But, I do get asked a few questions about my relationship by my friends, so I’ll re-answer them here~  While both of us had reached a place where we thought we’d like to meet someone and get married, neither of us got married just to get married. We were really choosy. We share so many interests it’s ridiculous and by the 2nd date both knew the other was, “the One.” We’re both old school sci-fi/fantasy/comic geeks as well as rabid bibliophiles. I often joke that he married me for my books. We’re also both progressive people, dedicated to freedom and equality. My Grandmother championed civil rights from her childhood on, so I guess it’s in my blood. However, our approach to situations is different. I’m the Scully to his Mulder and the penny pincher to his spendthrift. But as our relationship continues, he’s encouraged me to be more indulgent, and I’ve encouraged him to be more responsible. His hard work and compassion makes me incredibly proud.

All aboard!

Now, please enjoy a coked up Bryan Ferry singing about doomed love. Why? Because doomed love is the best love. We’re all going to die one day, so technically all love is doomed. Time is fleeting. Don’t waste it being scared.

  1. This is awesome. I’ve been trawling your archives (right through to the last post) and loving it. You are such a talented and all round awesome person. Also congratulations (I remember seeing your wedding dress on BS all those ages ago and then again when I was searching out the pattern for a friend XD). Keep up the good work (your illustrations rock!). Did you make this dress yourself as well? It’s beautiful on you. The two beams of light from the focus lamps above you both look like a heart-shaped halo XDXD
    I’ve got your RSS feed so I’ll see you around.

    1. Thank you! I love your blog. Your sewing projects are pretty inspiring. I like the different fabrics you use and you have such a great grasp of which patterns suit you. Unfortunately I didn’t make the short dress I’m wearing. I realized last minute that the Justice of the Peace wasn’t open on Saturday, when our reception was scheduled, so we had to go Friday morning the day before. I didn’t want to wear my long gown 2 days in a row, so I dashed out and bought something fun that reminded me of Yoko One. Then my the heel of one on my shoes broke and so I ended up barefoot ;D

      1. Thank you, that is very kind of you. That is such a sweet story as well! I assumed you’d made it because you seem a very Art Deco style lady to me and that dress looks like Art Deco for this century-very you.
