Yesterday was our first year wedding anniversary. 🙂

It has been a year filled with significant events & changes; it is difficult to tack down one thing that stands out.


We brought home our baby.

Our family life has strengthened.


We traveled across the globe & still felt at home.

[Technically Thailand & Eisley happened just over a year ago but still feel like yesterday.]


We exchanged vows beneath the sandstone cliffs.


We left behind what was familiar & safe…

& replanted ourselves in rocky landscape [literally, & some days, figuratively].

We realized life is now & worth living — now — so we are “going our own way”.


I suppose what stands out about our first year as husband & wife is the constant change, sense of adventure & growth as individuals as well as a couple we have experienced.  As I reflect over the past year, I am reminded why it is worth taking the road less traveled, why we are together, why we make sense, & why we will always be happy with each other.

Here is to my partner in life.  Every day I know how lucky & blessed I am to be with a man who has the courage to live, who refuses to play it safe & who goes for what will make us happy.

We will never know unless we go for it.

I am happy & feel secure embracing change & pursing a life less ordinary hand-in-hand with Dave.  We know it will all work out, even if we end up on the streets, 😉 because we will always keep happiness close & fill our lives with love & adventure.

I love you, Dave.
