last week I posted about our Labor Day weekend – part 1 and part 2. we rode our bikes over 70 miles up and down a pretty significant mountain. we didn’t really know what we were getting ourselves into – as goes a spontaneous getaway.
at times the ride was more than we had bargained for – coming off a week of running (for me) and wearing backpacks added to the level of difficulty, but we kept at it, stopped when we needed to, and made it a point to acknowledge our surroundings.
we made a wrong turn or two, but we were in it together. we laughed a lot, we cursed the hills, and we looked out for each other when cars were passing.
today is our 2-year marriage anniversary. I am so grateful for a partner who supports me, makes me laugh, helps to put things in perspective, and loves me unconditionally.
I love you with my whole heart, B.
your heart is my home.
here’s to decades of climbing mountains together, and sailing down the other side.
this photo is pinned behind my computer monitors at the office – it was taken a couple of weeks after we met in November 2008. it makes me smile everyday.
