big yikes!

so, last night as we were on our way to put a deposit on our wedding venue, ivan and i were in a car accident! we are both ok but we are not sure yet if our car is.

we were just talking with my cousins on the weekend about how crazy life can be and how every little thing you chose affects the path you take. ivan picked me up from the book store and i happened to walk out of the door just as he was pulling up. we were amazed by the perfect timing! then we drove a few minutes down the street and a car turned left into us as we were going through an intersection. if something in the bookstore had have caught my eye and i hesitated for a minute it might not have happened. but...on the other hand, we may have ended up in a worse situation. isn't it crazy?! life is full of possibilities and 'what if...'' moments...good and bad.

when an accident happens (even a smallish one) it makes you apreciate everyone and everything you have in your life. i think the holidays are an especially good time to remember that. give someone a hug today :)

  1. New visitor here. That sounds really scary. Glad you two are okay. I know about the 'what if...' moments. I used to have them a lot. But then I started to think about the survivors of 9/11, who were cursing their lucky at being stuck in traffic & hence late to work that fateful day. Now I'm a believer in destiny, at least in tha sense. Take Care! <3

  3. Glad indeed to hear you are both okay. Things can be repaired or replaced. Not people. Your sentiments are quite true, and each day life should be lived to it's fullest doing meaningful things with those we love.

  6. Like that time we were crossing Hwy 8...if you hadn't screamed I wouldn't have noticed the car that almost ran us over.

  8. That is so scary ! I am glad you guys are all right!

    My boyfriend and I got in an accident a couple of years ago and ever since I have been afraid of being in cars with people I don't absolutely trust. I am terrified of guardrails so when I am with someone I don't want to be driving with I make sure I sit on the side of the car that is not next to guardrails and thing like that. It kind of sucks to be so afraid, but it makes me an extra careful driver which is good.

    Anyways, on a happier note.. maybe santa will bring you a new car hehe !
