This life is good
Sometimes we have to stop and appreciate where we are in this very moment.
I am busier, possibly then I have ever been in my entire life. I mean my eyes are crossing as I write this for gosh sakes. I'm commuting between home(where the heart is) and here where the shop is(and my other heart is). We're doing this so that one day we don't have to be apart. We're planning our wedding and I'm in the midst of helping twenty other brides plan their weddings and it's really amazing actually. I'll never be in this place again and I'm really trying to soak it all in. Today Coriander Girl did the flowers for Tasha and Tim, a couple quite close to my heart. She presented me with a gift when I dropped off her bouquets today, my very own rolling pin!; > Sometimes I grow so close to the brides I don't want to see their day come and go. Last week we did Candice's wedding at The Old Mill, and honestly, this woman could easily have been a life long friend but it's proximity that decides who we're going to connect with. If you never meet, well, you never meet. I can't help but believe in destiny. Tyler is just so my other half, like we were once a single entity that was struck in half by lightning and since have spent our lives finding our way back to each other. He's just home for me.
What if I'd never stepped foot into Poor John's restaurant? What if Tyler hadn't left Prince Edward County after highschool? What if my dad didn't ask his friend Hunter to introduce him to his friend Donna that night in the Harvey's parking lot up in Thornhill. What if my nana didn't want to move to Toronto from Hadenfield New Jersey when her husband got offered work here. Where would we all be now?
Can you tell I'm exhausted? When I start contemplating the universe and the 'what if's?' it's a dead giveaway.
I plan to drive home tomorrow night, curl up with my darling and sleep and sleep and sleep and kiss and sleep.
Tomorrow I'll be at The Workroom for The Love and Rummage trunk show. I'll be selling posies in apothecary bottles and other crafty things. Hope to see you there dear hearts.
