We did go to a new pub in our town the night before our anniversary as a little date night to celebrate. We started talking about what we’ve done over the past 6 years together, everything we have accomplished as a couple and how there is so much adventure yet to come. What struck me the most about our conversation is that it focused mainly around travel and experiences (other than Little Dude).
We reminisced about the big trips we’ve taken almost every year: Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York, Banff, Newfoundland, Cuba to name the ones we highlighted. And then laughed about all the times we’ve gone to Montreal – how really it’s our home away from home and our #1 getaway location for a multitude of reasons.

The biggest take-a-way from the night was that we didn’t talk about any furniture we’ve purchased, cars we’ve owned, shirts that have been ruined, or anything material for that matter. The entire conversation was about our biggest accomplishment, Little Dude, and all of the fun we’ve had travelling and making memories.

So, to all of you newly weds out there or seasoned life partners listen up:
It’s what you do that counts, not what you buy. Get out there, see the world and laugh your way through life together.
My shoes for that: Barefoot – sometimes you need to feel the sand between your toes to appreciate the beach your walking on and the life you’re living.
