The Office

Jed and I started watching The Office, season one, episodes one and two last night.  I believe it ran nine seasons.  We started watching sporadically around season seven maybe.  We didn't have cable when the show started and weren't as well versed on how to watch TV on the internet (maybe it wasn't even possible way back then).  Of course, we've seen random episodes here and there from different seasons of the show, but we haven't seen the entire series in its entirety like the rest of America.

Can I just say this, 9 years too late... it's so cute to see Pam and Jim at the beginning.  Especially since in season 9 Pam foresees all these marital issues and is worried that Jim is falling out of love with her, etc.  So it's super cute to see how head over heels Jim is for Pam at the beginning. And all along. 

It reminded me of something my sister told me a few weeks before Jed and I got engaged.  She told me how she noticed that Jed looked at me with total love and adoration.  Something that I couldn't see, I mean, I knew we were in love, but you never really just notice how in love someone is with you, right?  My sister told me how lucky I was to find someone who looked at me like that.  I am lucky.
