Stuff happens.

15 Mar

Jake took this video over the weekend as we lazed around the house, eating waffles and dancing to Hot Chip in our jammies.  As we watched it together later, he proclaimed, “You will not be able to help posting that on the blog.”  I hate it when he’s right.

What really struck me while watching this is how quickly things change Just three years ago, Jake and I were living in Europe, swimming in the waters off the Cote d’Azur and turning the beautiful color of cafe au lait (which will one day, no doubt, come back to haunt us in the form of skin cancer).

Look how relaxed I was.

Here’s my point: Stuff happens.  Things change. Just when you think it’s all dialed-in, life makes a left turn and you’re wondering where you are again.  I’m so glad I had my opportunity to explore the world (and flirt with skin cancer) before Seabass made his debut.  But if I hadn’t had him, I doubt I would treasure those experiences as much.  Thank God for perspective.

    Love it. Also that you’re wearing the Yale sweatshirt mentioned before =)

    You’re both so cute, but where’s the dance?
