On our first evening in Vancouver, we accidentally stumbled upon Lost Lagoon - a lake near the entrance of Stanley Park. One minute, you're walking through the city and the next you're in this calm, serene spot watching a swan float by. We snagged a bench under a huge willow tree and rested our weary feet before setting off to explore. - Mina
Since I've moved to San Francisco, I've sprained my ankle, contracted bronchitis, and had an unexpected surgery... yet, somehow, I'm the happiest I've ever been. The people here have been truly kind and have made all my mishaps easier to deal with. I'm so totally in love with this city.
These are some instagram pictures from around SF. I haven't really taken the "real" camera out which is something I'd like to rectify because there is never a lack of beautiful things to document here. - Mina
We shared a late afternoon exploring Stanley Park, in Vancouver, recently. Alex pointed out this sweet couple strolling arm in arm along the water and said that would be us someday. I had to creepily snap these images of our future selves.
Our first year of marriage was spent chasing the sun. The subsequent years were filled with high highs and low lows. Our anniversary trip to Hawaii was cancelled this week because of Hurricane Ana but how could we be upset when we were able to just get in the car and drive down the California coast? (We're also very relieved that no one was hurt and the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm)
I still can't believe I'm married, let alone celebrating a 5 year anniversary. Considering I thought I'd be a spinster, I am consistently surprised about how deeply we care, how we still laugh until our stomachs hurt, and how we continue to learn new things about each other. I wonder if it will be the same when we're walking hand in hand, in 50 years, perhaps with the aid of a cane. We could only hope to be so lucky.
