A Happy Ending

by HEAB on September 22, 2011

Date in your 20’s. Break up…several times and listen to this song over & over.

Give up on love. Dedicate life to work and going to the gym. Listen to this song over & over.

Meet random boy when you least expect it. Never think he’s the one. Run into random boy over and over. Develop a wee little crush. Then show up wherever you think he will be. In other words, stalk him.

Hang out one day and the next and then every day after that. Fall in love and listen to David Gray sing This Year’s Love over and over.


Realize this year’s love did last and get married. Hang out, drink coffee on the weekends while reading the paper, get a dog or two, watch episodes of Conan and cuddle on the couch. Disagree sometimes and argue. Think of throwing things at CD’s head, but discover screaming into a pillow works just as well. Talk. Hug. Be grateful that you are in love with your best friend.

Create life together.


Fall in love all over again when husband becomes dad.

Remember the closing scene in Notting Hill…the one on the park bench? I remember when I saw the movie thinking, I want that some day

Fast forward to the present. One day, I was walking up to Summer’s room and noticed this framed photo…


and it hit me. I got my Notting Hill ending.


Happy Anniversary CD. I love you. -Heather Pie

Ohhh I love your photos…. I was just researching online about the Notting Hill bench. When I watched that movie I really told myself that I have to be in that bench also someday with the man I love. I admired Hugh Grant so much, his british accent and even adores Ronan Keating so much. Until now When you say nothing at all is still one of my favorite love songs. I had a british bf and I went to London and remember that bench but found out that the bench is now in Perth, Australia as someone bought it and donated it and now in Queens Garden in Perth. So since then, and after a broken relationship with my british bf… I just forget about it all. I didn’t care anymore if my next man is a british or what. 😉 Then when I went back dating again… I just found out that my man is from Perth and when I mentioned to him about that bench he told me he is always passing that bench when he runs there. He just told me that he will not be sitting on that bench until we are together in Perth… in that Notting Hill bench. Ohhh!!! I am so excited as I am going to Perth this January… Dreams coming true. Wish me luck!!!

Congrats you two! This was a lovely post. Wish you many more years of happiness. 🙂 Shows people that happy endings are possible.

P.s. You guys are hot parents, just saying. Lol

HEAB October 5, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Thanks so much Raine. 🙂

Holly September 30, 2011 at 9:08 pm

Happy Anniversary Heather! I have written you before and told you how we have so many parallels in our lives. I too am a massage therapist and my little girl was born this past Thanksgiving day; I believe just a month after your precious Summer. I really enjoyed reading all your post as I found I was always going through something similiar. This post just stunned me because Sept. 23rd is my husband’s and my anniversary. Very strange that so many of our milestones are so close together…lol. Hope you guys have a wonderful anniversary!

HEAB October 2, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Hi Holly,
No way – I do remember your email. How is your little girl doing? Can you believe both our babies are almost a year old?!? In fact, I’ve just started planning Summer’s first birthday party. 🙂

Hope you and your husband enjoyed your anniversary. Sounds like it’s been a busy, yet amazing year for us both!

charlotte September 29, 2011 at 1:52 pm

I’m late on this but Happy Anniversary! You and CD and Summer are such a wonderful family and I love love love watching you all grow together!

Lea @ Healthy Coconut September 29, 2011 at 10:00 am

Aww Happy Anniversary!! This put a huge smile on my face 🙂

Dara September 23, 2011 at 3:29 pm

Happy Anniversary, Heather!

Just wondering, where is your plaid maternity dress from? I remember seeing it a while back, but I had just had my daughter and was very NOT interested in wearing maternity clothes again. I’m pregnant again and I LOVE that dress. Do tell!

HEAB September 25, 2011 at 8:47 pm

Hi Dara,
I loved that dress too. It was from Pickles and Ice-Cream: http://www.picklesandicecream.com. I checked online and didn’t see it in their current fall collection, but they don’t currently stock it. It was a loaner, and so I’m not even sure of the brand name. Sorry, I wish I could be of more help, and I hope you find something similar. It was really cute and so comfy!

Caitlin @ Vegetarian in the City September 23, 2011 at 2:00 pm

this post gave me goosebumps. your family is so beautiful and even though i don’t know you, i’m so very happy for you

HEAB September 25, 2011 at 8:44 pm

Thanks Caitlin – that means a lot. 🙂

Ohhh happy anniversary! This post tugged at the heart strings quite a bit – so well put Heather! ps. I’ve totally been and there and done that with the ‘This Year’s Love’ ballad – haven’t found the one that ‘better last’ but I can relate to playing it on repeat, curled up in a ball, clutching wads of shredded tissue.

Hope you do something special. Or not special. Just hope you enjoy it!

Cynthia (It All Changes) September 22, 2011 at 2:11 pm

This post made me tear up. Happy tears! 🙂 I watched “Notting Hill” over and over and I still want that ending in my life too… So glad it came true for you! Happy Anniversary!!!

Happy Anniversary!! This is a beautiful post!

Happy Anniversary to you and CD!

Are you a Law Of Attraction believer? Just wondering.

Thanks for giving us the gift of these songs on YOUR anniversary. Good stuff.

I thought of you all the other night when Ricki Lake (I think?) danced to “This Years Love” on Dancing With The Stars (no, I am not a regular viewer 🙂 )

Enjoy your day!

HEAB September 25, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Hi Scott,
OK, kind of disturbed that Ricki Lake is shaking her stuff to our song. Really? Yeah, kind of glad I didn’t see that. Nothing against Ricki Lake, just makes it kind of weird, you know?

Thanks for your anniversary wishes, and yes, a believer in the Law of Attraction. You just gotta put it out there, you know?

OK, so still have NOT tried the butterfied coffee, but I did finally make it to Jeni’s ice-cream. Oh my gosh – best ice-cream ever! I sampled just about every flavor, and I all I have to say is GO BUCKEYES! 😉

wow, this gave me goosebumps! happy anniversary to the sweetest and coolest couple I know.
I love that notting hill scene too, and am thankful for a husband who i get to share life with.

Now enjoy some baby free time tonight, k?

HEAB September 25, 2011 at 8:20 pm

Thank you, we did! A friend came over and stayed with Summer while we went out for dinner and dessert. Love date night. 🙂
