Our Groovy Kinda Love

Well…it’s now official. Our video blog is now up and running. The first video is now up and the hope is that we have at least one video up every other day. 

picThanks for the ideas, but we’re going to go with Our Groovy Kinda Love. Since our first few choices were already out in the social networking universe, we found one that was close to us because it’s named after a Phil Collins song…OUR song…that was played at our wedding ceremony.

The name just made sense.

So please join us on our journey as we try to show you what our fun life is like. In a world of Millennials, hipsters, and gamers on YouTube, won’t it be nice to have a married couple in their early 40’s simply being real, honest, AND entertaining?

The New Vlog

Hey gang.

I know, I know…it’s been a LONG time since I last uploaded a blog on a regular basis. It just seems that life sometimes just doesn’t give time when I’ve got inspiration or the inspiration when I’ve got the time.

What I’ve found, though, is that both my wife and I have decided that doing a video diary might be a fun way to put…well…the fun back into our lives. We’ve always prided ourselves on not only being soulmates, but being each other’s best friends. Sometimes we forget that so we think that doing a vlog might do the trick.

As we prepare to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’m putting the finishing touches on the first three episodes. The only problem is that we don’t have a name for the series yet. We actually did have one name in mind…The Moot Point…but we found that there’s already a vlog on YouTube with that name. 

I would love to come up with something clever that relates to us and how awesome we are as a couple. So far, though, we can’t seem to come up with anything catchy.

So…uhh…does anybody have any suggestions??


Ringing In The New Year In A VERY Cold Way

Polar Bear DipFor the last few years, Sunshine has done the Polar Bear Dip every January 1st. Last year I somehow found the guts to try it myself. We were both set to do it again this year when we the morning of January 1st came and the temperature was well above zero. Not only that, but it was pouring rain outside and the thought of waiting with a couple hundred others for our number to be called wasn’t overly appealing.

Sunshine then decided to come up with a new idea…let’s drive to our favourite beach and simply jump into the ocean!!

So that’s what we did. We packed up our swimming gear (and the kids) and took off for the beach. Once there, we decided to live-stream the entire event on Facebook. For those who are inclined, here is the end result…
