happy anniversary to us!

 
 
fourteen years ago today shannon and i finally finished our long countdown to the what was the most anticipated day of my life: our wedding.  june 26 of 1999 was hotter than hades itself, but i barely noticed.  i was too enthralled with my beautiful bride, the great cloud of witnesses that had gathered to celebrate with us, and the long-awaited beginning of this new journey.  it was, along with the birth of our children, one of the greatest days of my life. 

and today i celebrate it again. 

as with any journey, there have been trips and tumbles, hurdles and headaches, wrong turns and restarts.  but there have also been moments, the beauty of which i could scarcely pretend to describe.  even this moment, looking back, is like a panoramic view of the places we've trod, the ground we've covered, and it is breathtaking.  we've come a long way, baby!  and the road ahead calls with more adventure.  i can't wait to keep walking with you.

So happy for both of you. I cannot believe it has been 14 years! It WAS one of the hottest days ever, but so much fun...and who could forget the leaning tower of cake?
