Yes, today I am now officially a married man. My wife and I had our civil service this morning in Helsinki. It took the official less than one minute and fifteen seconds to conduct the ceremony! Happened so fast. But, at least our “real wedding”- as we like to say- is in August with the church, reception, exchanging of rings, etc. (Its actually going to be a blessing of today’s marriage since I didn’t want to pay money to prove I was a Christian, but we are considering it to be the day)
So things were going very, very well. A new day. A new life. Then at lunch my wife and I conspired through miscommunication to drop our brand new $850 camera lens on the floor and break it. One of the inner elements is “loose,” you can hear something else rattle around, and it refuses to focus. $850 was over a month’s wages for me. *note- no alcohol was involved in this colossal accident*
What a way to start our marriage! At least we have wine and cheesecake samples from our chef friends to mend my broken heart. Haha. Oh, and we filed a claim with her insurance so heres to hoping they cover something.
On a gardening note, I’m exporting the video for the first segment of the new slideshow! Expect it soon.
