I'm so excited to have Alex and Mina from Sending Postcards. I found their blog last spring, and knew they'd be a perfect fit for the feature. In their own words: During the autumn of 2009, we sold our house, quit our jobs, and were married in the sun. We left our life-long home on the prairies of Canada to run away together and see the world. They created a travelogue to document our extended honeymoon—the often mundane, seldom peculiar, and sometimes extraordinary details. After 7 months of continuous travel around AfricaEurope, and the Americas, we bought a home in 'la belle province'. Now, we travel when we can and occasionally document our local "adventures" around MontrealYou'll love their blog!

Thank you Alex and Mina for being a part of My Better Half!

1. Was an extra in a Wes Craven movie.
2. Wants to see the world.
3. Randomly decided to run a full marathon without training for it (finished, just barely).

1. Loves toy Cameras.
2. Would never refuse a sushi date.
3. Is learning to play some of Beethoven's hits.

We met at a Hallowe'en party, while attending the University of Manitoba, but we were both too nervous to ask the other person out. Fortunately, mutual friends arranged a "party" where we were the only guests, and we've been inseparable ever since.

We were married nearly three years ago in Los Angeles and traveled awhile before finally ending up in Montreal.

Thank you Alex and Mina for being a part of My Better Half! A cute outtake after the jump!
