Through The Years

 

The Holidays is always an extra special time because back in mid-December 2010 is when I was lucky enough to meet my soul mate and wife, Lindsay. Sure it was a shitty karaoke bar on the edge of Polk Gulch but we showed that love really will prevail. So this week, in anticipation of Xmas, I thought I’d look back at a the last 5 holidays we’ve been together.

Happy Birthday Lindsay!

We’re currently in Belgium to celebrate Lindsay’s birthday and you’re going to get a double dose of pictures today since it was 4 years ago that we were in London celebrating her birthday. I couldn’t ask for a better wife and consider myself so lucky every day … Happy Birthday my love!!

Playing Tourist

As I mentioned earlier in the week my parents are in town and visiting the UK for the first time. Here’s one from our visit to Stonehenge on their first day in town.

København Flashback

When I go to a new city on vacation I of course like to see the main sights that they’re known for (to get a picture of them) and then Google them later on to see exactly why they’re important if I don’t already know. I much prefer doing “local” things and having an that irregular and unusual tourist experience to the “Top 10 only” experience. While I’ll keep the rest of my thoughts on this to a future Travel Tuesday post, it’s fun to do those touristy things every once and a while.

Last year while in København my sister and I did a canal tour, and had some fun with it! Here’s a picture of us in between our active listening, people watching and picture taking boat ride along the canals.

Getting Buff

When I was in Iceland last year we went to visit Geysir one day and took a stroll through the gift shop. I took a picture of a cool, multi-use piece of “clothing” that I almost bought. Since it was the first stop on our 2 month journey I decided to hold off on buying anything, even if it was small, but kept the picture and name of the item for future reference.

On a completely different but weirdly semi-related note, I need music when working out or really going anywhere/doing anything. I’ve got some nice Bose over ear headphones but they can be a bit clunky to maneuver with. I’ve gone through plenty of expensive music earbuds that always break sooner than they should. So I’ve recently just stuck with the Apple earbuds since I found about a dozen pair of them when we were cleaning out to make our move to London. The only problem is that they don’t stay in my ears, especially when I’m running or really doing anything besides walking very gently so it gets quite frustrating when trying to be active.

When we got to London I realized this was the perfect spot and whether to buy one and kill two birds with one stone. Not only was it going to finally be that accessory I’ve been wanting but it was going to be a way to workout and keep those pesky earbuds in and the music pumping. So having said that I finally invested in (my first) Buff last month. I went with the Original Buff and the best part is they’ve got up to 13 different ways to wear them plus they have thermal ones, infinity scarves, protective ones and ones for dogs (or cats) plus many more. So now I can look stylish, have a multi-use accessory and keep my earbuds in while working out!

Here’s my wife & I on a run along Regent’s Canal stopping just long enough for a quick picture.
