I am heading towards 1 Year next month so I can only imagine the changes and permutations Dawn has witnessed over the past 4 years in Blogland ! I have gotten to "know" Dawn as part of the Canadian Artist Valentine's Swap I just participated in for the first time, where Dawn served as our wonderful hostess. I think Dawn's specialty is bringing people together ! As part of her Blogaversary celebration, she is interviewing some of her current favorite Bloggers and allowing her readers to get to know them better. Dawn has honored me by including me in her list of favs and you can see the interview here . It was fun doing the interview and choosing some pictures for Dawn to include that showcase my blog a little ! Thanks so much, Dawn, for making me a part of your fun celebration !
Today is the final day of the week-long Blog-a-long started by LK at the Poetic Eye. For our last day, LK suggested we link to either our favorite "maxin' and relaxin'" music or choose anything we wanted to share.
What I decided to include is dedicated to my man, David.
A lot of the time I write about Montreal and how wonderful it feels to go home to visit my family and friends there. I even call them my "Love Therapy" experts. All of that is so true ! But there is another place that I can go each and every day, where I can really be myself and really, really feel loved. And that place is anywhere where my David is.

I know, I know you are all gagging from the sweetness, right ? Well, guess what ? From Day 1, David and I have loved to make people gag !!! Ha, ha, ha !
Seriously though, I know I am a very lucky woman. I have found a person who loves me at my best and at my worst. You know the nicest thing this man has ever said to me ? Besides saying "I love you" and meaning it so deeply, that is ? He told me at one of my very weakest moments :
"You are stronger than you think you are."
Those words ring in my head whenever I am down or scared or weakened since that day. He sees me that way, which is more than I could ever have asked for. He knows my heart, you see, this beautiful man. This man, my David, well.... he just feels like home to me...
