married life

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of attending the amazing wedding of Darlin. I’m really not a wedding person but I’m thinking all weddings should be scheduled such that the kiss occurs at sunset. On the coast of British Colombia. Something about those silhouettes in that fading light.

After we got married in August 2014, many people asked: How’s married life?

My response: We’ve been living together for a while so the same as non-married life?

Looking back, maybe something did shift that summer. Because I haven’t had a my life is boring OMG moment since then.

It’s not entirely clear.

Walking along the bamboo forest in Arashiyama, he decided that he wanted a grapefruit drink. So we bought two grapefruit drinks. It was expensive.

As I put down the one on the left, I said: Let me take a picture of my grapefruit

As he put down the one on the right, he said: Take a picture of my grapefruit too

The fashion couple that created the tiffany campaign are not together anymore.

We don’t have a shared bank account but maybe we should get a shared instagram account?

It’s not entirely clear.

  • Les Trois Mousquetaires Grande Cuvee American Barleywine: Deep amber colour; pronounced hoppy aromas of pink grapefruit, pine resin, white flower and caramel
  • Of course we made a stop at Rogue when we were in Portland; the chipotle ale was pretty cool
  • Trying a new baked chicken recipe; in addition to the usual ketchup + apple cider vinegar + caramelized garlic + cinnamon, I added chipotle
  • Thyme left over from another recipe so I baked carrot + thyme
