Archive for the ‘anniversary’ tag
John and I celebrated our floating anniversary (it is either the anniversary of our first date or first kiss… there is some dispute on actual reason for the anniversary… but there is no doubt that the day to celebrate is always the Tuesday before Thanksgiving) at Jay’s Seafood.
While we were there we realized that it was the tenth floating anniversary.
Ten years. Wow.
Here’s to many more.
For our third anniversary, John and I went back to Hawaii. This time we went to the Big Island, since we were on Maui last time.
We started out on the desert side of the island, and then moved over to the rainforest side, with a stop along the way to check out the volcano. I will talk more about the whole trip later… I am still processing everything.
Suffice to say that the trip was most awesome, and if we hadn’t started to miss the cats (and had a check out date for the cottage we were renting, along with return plane tickets) we might have been tempted to look into staying.
Speaking of processing, I took 14.7G worth of photos on the trip, and I have finally finished processing and uploading them. They are all here on my flickr site.
The trip was supposed to be the anniversary present, but after we got back John gave me a anniversary present anyway… a set of six Thousand-Eye pattern goblets from the early 1900s.
One year ago today we had a small group of close family and friends over to watch us get married and help us celebrate. I don’t think that it is a stretch to say that it was one of the best days of my life. Looking back on that day… it was perfect. There is not a single thing that I would change or do any differently.
One year ago tomorrow we got on a plane and flew to Maui, and the night we landed we drove up to the top of Haleakala to watch the sun rise.
This is our favorite picture of us together. Some random stranger took it for us shortly after the sun rose over the cloud cover. (Thank you random stranger, you did a great job!) We’ll be back there someday.
Happy anniversary, John. This has been an awesome year.
I love you!
