We Can Rebuild Her
Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

Marry me!

Due to the generosity of my parents, our two daughters had 24 hours without their parents. They had a great time swimming, going out to see a movie and (perhaps most importantly for them) no household responsibilities.

Of course, it also meant Andrea and I were obliged to find ways to occupy our time. We did commendably! We threw ourselves at the mercy of coffee shops, tea shops, book stores and forced ourselves to dine out. Oh, the humanity.

In the process, my iPhone camera was on rapid fire and I was able to capture some of the many faces of my beautiful wife. I created this collage from our weekend. Note, I’m particularly fond of the photos in the lower-right.

Mark is primary support, cheerleader and project manager of Andrea's recovery. You can read more from Mark here and on Mark's real blog, MarkBlevis.com.

    What is it you said to her, to elicit those faces in the bottom right?

    If I recall correctly, Andrea was reacting to the staff at David’s Tea in Westboro.

    So happy our staff could elicit such wonderful expressions! But I must ask, what tea was Andrea drinking?nnCheers,nYouri (from DAVIDsTEA)

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving the comment, Youri. Just to clarify, the expressions elicited by the David’s Tea staff appear in the three rightmost photographs on the bottom row of the collage. Thankfully we’ve had better experiences at three other David’s Tea stores.nnI don’t recall which tea Andrea was drinking. I think I was having the chocolate mint rooibos.
