So Rob’s been my sweetie for a little while but we’ve only lived together for 3 months so far and you might wonder what in the heck does this have to do with origami hearts, but here me out… We were eating out, having a bit of a date night when I got all sorts of sad and mopey. When Rob asked what was wrong after an obvious mood shift I told him that we weren’t going to get all of the lovely milestones that others get. It’s doubtful we will live long enough to have a 50th wedding anniversary. We won’t get to celebrate birthdays of children we can’t have. So many of the things other couples get to celebrate we won’t be able to because, even though we’ve known each other since high school, we found our way to each other a bit later in life.
And Rob told me not to be sad. That we’d make up for lost time and that we didn’t have to hit any huge milestones to be happy. And on the ride home I decided that we can celebrate the smaller things. Is 100 days living together much for most people? No. And in fact I’ll probably get teased for celebrating in such a small milestone. Perhaps it is a bit juvenile but, like I said before, we’re not going to have a big multi-decade anniversary party with all of our friends and loved ones around. We’re set for a different path than most families and I’ll come to terms with it but for now, I’m going to relish the little things. It will be quality. Not quantity. And so here are 100 paper hearts, shared in to biggest way I can on my blog, folded with love for 100 amazing days waking up to the man I adore.

Now today’s post is a video tutorial, which I hope to do a lot more of since I just spent big bucks on video editing software (go big or go home!) Let me know if you have any tips, suggestions or ideas to make these videos better and easier for you to follow. At the current moment I’m filming on top of poster board on my living room rug with Ollie snuggled up against my leg :) Hardly professional but we’ll get there. I refuse to move the dog, though :)
Thanks so much for watching :)
