The Present Day Turners Thursday December 24, 2009

It’s been a long while since I’ve been even remotely reflective and sentimental on c.t.overdrive. And I know some of you haven’t missed that aspect of the blog.

For those familiar with the story for the of c.t.overdrive, you’ll know that the first year and a half of this blog’s existence was a complete personal gong show. I was battling with sobriety and complete uncertainty with a career plan. It was chaotic and when I look back at the those old posts, I wonder about how much of a ninny I was back then.

For the past two and a half years there has been dramatic change in the tone of the site. Sure these past few years have been filled with ups and downs and it would be a lie to pretend these haven’t been busy years; the evolution of the Armadillo Studios brand has kept me exceptionally busy. But overall the tone of the site has become a bit more light-hearted and less emo as Mr. Dark Manyluk likes to say. So give me some lee-way with this post.

On Saturday a chapter of my life ended while another one begun. See, I married my munchie.

For many of the people in attendance, our wedding was the culmination of a full year of intense and somewhat chaotic planning and organizing. It was an amazing ceremony and thank you to all the people who were apart of our awesome weekend.

But to myself and Caitlin, the wedding was something else. It was the exclamation point on a two and half year statement. That exclamation point of course was the introduction to our new family; The Present Day Turners.

People have asked me for the past few days what and how it feels to be married. Up until that point, I would have ventured to say that my answer was going to be It’s the same or No Difference. But over the past few days, I’ve quickly learned that it does change. It doesn’t change how you relate to each other, but in how others react to you, as a couple and a team. Team Turner FTW!

After going through the process, a wedding really isn’t about the chicken dance or removing weeds and dead flowers from one’s garden, it’s a public statement of love and intent to spend the rest of your lives with someone. It’s the introduction of a new family and a new chapter in a whole group of people’s lives. For the couple getting married, it makes life that much easier. It removes mountains of stress that even the most self aware couple never knew existed. Because from that moment on no one (well in theory) can question your commitment to one and another. As a couple you no longer have to justify any actions to further yourself as a couple. It becomes a statement – with that statement a massive weight is lifted from your shoulders and life becomes that much easier.

So with that, I get the honor of doing something I never thought I would, I get to introduce The Turners.

Thank you to all who were involved in our weekend, you truly are the kings and queens of kings. It was amazing – Thank you.

I’ve been saying this for years – being married to the right person makes life many, many times easier.

Was an awesome wedding – you two did a great job! Now you get to relax and enjoy life.
