Like it was yesterday, right?
Nine Years. Nine years of being married to you. This is something I love.
I hope this is just the dawn of our marriage.
I hope it goes on and on for many more years. (60 or more?!)
Walking this life with you is a privilege and joy.
There are sometimes clouds in our skies, sometimes there is a lot of dirt.
We encounter rocks and weeds along our way.
There are also little wild flowers. And cultivated ones, too.
Refreshing waters and soft grasses.
But the looking behind and ahead and in the right now, the view is really beautiful.
Things look lovely, standing here with you.
Your wife (Erin)
*First photo is our wedding. Obviously.
Following photos are from our anniversary date,
Early morning hike at Wilder Ranch State Preserve Santa Cruz.
Then we had one of the best breakfasts ever at Cafe Brasil.
Brazilian food? YUM. I tried to do a Brazilian dinner tonight, in fond memory.
It did not compare. I need to work on this. But, I am not complaining.
It will be a fun work.
We bummed around the rest of our day, after breakfast,
shopping and walking and exploring more.
We bought the kids shark teeth and the Daddy told them a tale about Sharks at Wilder.
They were in awe.
