Three years ago today my life changed forever.
I met my best friend, confidant, and partner for life. Her love of cooking and my love of eating probably helped in a big way! (We met online, her profile was gourmet gal, mine said I love a clean kitchen.)
It's amazing how quickly we fell into sync with each other. Our relationship is based on an incredible amount of respect for each other, deep love, and trust. We disagree, but never argue. We complement each other in all the right ways, where she's weak I am strong, and where I am weak, she shows great strength.
Lots of changes have happened in the last three years. We moved in together, had two of our daughters graduate (one more to go this school year then that's it!) Taught three teenage girls to drive, entered and won a local biggest loser competition (I quickly learned how competetive 'Fiona' can be
). I even got braces, at 45!
We are now both very committed to healthy living, regular exercise, and eating healthy foods.
Thankfully, my 'Fiona' is still a gourmet gal and can work her magic in the kitchen regardless the ingredients. And, I still like a clean kitchen. I guess that's why we work so well, she cooks, we eat, and I clean up.
My love is on the road for work this week, so we will not celebrate until her return.
This is my love letter to 'Fiona', through SparkPeople, which has been such an integral part of our journey to health.
Love, your 'Shrek'
