Today marks three months since that chilly Melbourne day back in July when you touched down here and made physical the wonderful connection we could only express over IRC and webcams.

As we sat on the couch before and I held you in my arms, I felt the most wonderful sense of completeness I have ever felt. It’s like when I hold you, the rest of the world ceases to exist for me. Nothing else matters as I gaze into your eyes.

Your smile keeps me going when I am tired or when its a long day at work. Even to hear your voice is the most wonderful gift. As I work each day, its okay because I know I am working towards our future… one that I never thought was possible before I met you. I know I cry sometimes… It’s only because I remember how I used to be before. These are tears of happiness I shed now.

I want to cherish, you, my wife… I want to make you that happiest woman on the face of the planet… Tend your every need, grow old with you. You are my future. One day we will find that quite place and settle down, adopt children and raise them. Any child would be blessed to have you as their mother, as I am doubly blessed to be your wife.

In three short months, that plane will carry us home. I feel like I’ve been waiting for this my whole life. Everything built towards this moment, this wonderful sense of completeness and fulfillment you create within me.

You are my all, my angel, my guiding light…

Here’s to the next three months and beyond!

Your wife,


My Blessed Miracle October 17, 2006

My Blessed Miracle

Miracle. That our paths might cross, a world apart.
Miracle. That our eyes might seek each other out.
Miracle. That I finally told you how my heart yearned.
Miracle. That what followed next was “I Love You Too”
Miracle. That facing your fear, you chased the sun to find me.
Miracle. That rising from my sleep, you are my waking moment..
Miracle. That I could be given such a precious gift as your love.

Melody, I am blessed to have you in my life.
I know am not perfect and I have my issues.
You make me want to strive and be better than I can be.
Each moment I hold you I thank God for.
You smile means everything to me.
Your health means everything to me.
Besides you, nothing else matters.
All I want… All I need … is you.

I Love You.


Dairy free and Gluten free pizza night October 14, 2006

Melody and I made pizza last night and it was yummy. We bought gluten free (tapioca) flour and soy cheese, and spent some time at the market buying vegetables and some nice spicy salami. It was fun and we ended up making a huge pizza. The wonderful find was the tapioca flour, as Melody can have this and the pizza base tasted like it was made from normal flour. It’s opened up all sorts of possibilities that we can make – even homemade bread!

We hired a couple of DVD’s and watched “V for Vendetta” (Melody hadn’t seen it) and this morning we watched “Memoirs of a Geisha” (I hadn’t seen it).

This afternoon we spent with Loscha and Michelle, and they gave us a tour of Footscray. I had been there before but never to the markets or Little Saigon. We bought some yummy foods to make a stir fry, some seafood rolls and a roast dinner for tomorrow night. We both had a great time, finishing up having tea at Michelle’s place.

All in all, a lovely evening and a lovely day.
