So here I am. I'm blogging again?? Aaruuughhh?? (Tim the Tool Man sound)
Well I figure it's a great way to expel some crap off of my chest, or just or to just to let anyone who is interested into what is up in my little world.
Like I mentioned, my last blog entry on http://paidesign.blogspot.ca/ was February 24th, 2010. Well a whollllle shit-ton has happened since then reader(s)!
I'll try and throw in interesting pics and links to anything I'm talking about 'cuz let's face it, there's a reason I took art in school and it wasn't for my writing. I know my mother will just have a fit with the spelling mistakes or my sentence structures and so on, but I'm going to go with it and I'll try to be a clear, informative and entertaining as possible.
So where to start?! My gosh. Well, I married a beautiful woman for starters back on November 6th, 2010. It was a chilly day but everyone had a great time, and I couldn't be happier for what I signed up for. She's the strength behind all of my weaknesses and why I choose to continue to pursue what matters to me. She straightens me out when I'm stumbling and she comforts me when I need to feel that I'm doing the right thing. She's a hell of a cook, she tells me to go out with the boys and she always thinks of others before herself. She's an amazing person and all of my struggles are worth it for her.
After our lovely fun wedding we started living our lives just as we always did. A fun couple who lived in a lovely home which had a guest bedroom. But now that bedroom is currently being occupied by someone I still have a hard time believing is part of our lives. My beautiful little daughter Fiona Olive. She was born May 2nd, 2012 at 4:30 am and I was the first one she opened her eyes to and it melted me. She is now both of our raison d’êtres.
There really is no resting when it comes to learning to be a Dad. It's on from the day she arrives and it never stops. My wife blew me away with how well she did throughout this whole process but we are so happy she was healthy and ready kick some ass...at baby'ing. It really has changed everything for the better.
So as it goes, really since 2010, wedding and baby can top the list. There have been ups and down and some crazy times like two months after becoming a father, being laid off from a 4 year job but it resulted in me experiencing some of the most exciting career events to come my way since getting accepted into Art School. I'll get to some of those experiences soon. For now, I'll just leave it with this photo that sums up my life.
