The Bed Count - June

If you're not quite sure what The Bed Count is, we've decided that rather than tracking the number of places we visit, kilometers we drive, days we are here or numbers of nights we sleep in Canada, we would measure our time by counting the number of beds we have slept in. Here is the running total:

February = 6
March = 5
April = 10
May = 5
June = 6
Total = 32

Step Two

We've hit another milestone in our process towards life in Poland. We are now officially students in the Polish language and culture faculty at Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika (University of Nicolas Copernicus) in Toruń, Poland. These acceptance papers will help streamline our visa application process as we will be entering Poland on student visa's to start with.

We are now working on our visa applications and will be submitting these to the consulate at the beginning of July when we are back in the Lower Mainland.

And so, life in Poland becomes an even closer reality.

Happy Anniversary to Us

3 years ago today the rain was pouring and we were saying our "I do's" in a short ceremony surrounded (literally standing around us) by the people who know and love us best. We took some time to celebrate this milestone and kept our tradition of reviewing the last year together and setting a goal for this year.

Last year we focused on communicating in the moment. We worked hard on this and we can see some great progress in this aspect of our marriage. This year we are going to work on being more purposeful with having some fun and building memories. We're realizing that our lives can be so full, that unless we're purposeful about the things we enjoy, we'll quickly miss out on what things that are life-giving.

Here's looking forward to another year. We've said it before and we'll say it again: we're better together.
