ten years

ten years ago today i married the man i love in a beautiful mountain meadow.

it poured throughout the entire ceremony.
(good luck, right?)

and my beloved, dearly departed, miles was our ring bearer.

last night, to celebrate and remind each other of our love, we returned to that meadow. and although our love has grown and changed and been tested and confirmed over and over again, it was comforting that that meadow seemed much the same.

for dinner we went to the restaurant where we had our rehearsal dinner.

it doesn't look like much from the outside, but believe me, it is fabulous. we thought we couldn't really afford to have dinner there but we would just have a beer and an appetizer and go somewhere else for dinner. however, we discovered it was $5 burger night and everything was perfect. the waiter even brought us a free piece of deliciously decadent raspberry cheesecake for dessert.

i am so extremely lucky and infinitely grateful to have this man in my life.

p.s. glenn has actually planned a very special anniversary trip for us, but it will happen in late september. we are going to float the lower san juan river, just the two of us (glenn's lovely folks are coming to stay with the girls), in duckies, with a guide to show us all of the best hikes, cook all of our food, deal with the boats, set up camp, etc!
