My husband came from the internet.
We both hung out at a Finnish site for indie and UG-musicians.
We listened to each other's projects, liked them, started talking, and became internet friends.
After awhile, we got to talking about dating, and i said i'd go out with him.
It took him a long time to reply, and when he did, he sounded really surprised, asking me if i was serious.
I said hell yeah, i'd go out with you, and we made a date.
Getting dressed was a right pain.
He'd told me to wear flat shoes, so that he could see how tiny i was :D
Finding a parking place was even more difficult.
I was fifteen minutes late, and i was sure he'd decided i wasn't coming, and left.
Not seeing him there was a right scare.
But he'd just gone up the stairs to check i hadn't slipped by him :)
The first thing he said to me was "neiti Pahis, oletan".
I couldn't come up with a clever response, 'cause he was so cute <3
Later, he said he'd thought i was so totally out of his league.
I told him i'd thought the exact same thing, only the opposite way :D
He'd brought me chocolate, too, 'cause he knew i was a chocoholic.
We went to have dinner, and the conversation was a bit slow, but not uncomfortable.
We're both a bit quiet.
After, we went to a bar, which, surprisingly, was both our favorite.
Surprisingly, since we lived far apart.
A friend of his joined us, and told us he was going to go see Swallow the Sun @ Lutakko.
We decided to go, too.
The first date was magic, and we got engaged about a month later.
He wanted to wait a whole year before getting wed, just to see if it would last.
And it did.
We got married on June 29, 2007.
|the ceremony took about a minute and a half|
after, we had a few friends over
we hadn't told them what we were up to, and they got a big surprise when seeing a "just married"-sign on our door :D
He plays many instruments.
Including the bass, though his main thing is the guitar.
And he plays well, though he doesn't realize it himself.
|spice girls totally rock \../|
He used to play in the BoneFleshDolls.
They went different ways last fall, but i think they'll eventually get back together, in one way or the other.
After all, it's not a band.
It's a family.
|inside jokes are the best|
there's a long story behind that bottle of Smirnoff XD
That's the bonefleshbox he's sitting on.
I almost fit inside it.
He likes to fish, and roam the forests.
Last summer, he caught a really big fish.
Ate it, too.
Cooked, though, not raw.
|this is husband in his element|
if he had his way, he'd live with the nature, on it's terms
sadly, i need modern comforts
He's really good with the camera.
And, again, he doesn't realize it himself.
He's a bit on the modest side.
|sunrise where we live|

He likes animals, and is very good with them.
This pic was taken by his ex-girlfriend.
A bird had flown into a window, and he went out to see if it was okay, and it sat on his hand for moment before flying off.
I've seen him do this myself.
He's kind and caring toward those who can't fend for themselves.
|he's doing his david attenborough-thing <3|
So that's my husband, the most important person in my world.
I sometimes feel i don't deserve him.
After all, i am a right pain in the butt :D
