It’s been ten years since we celebrated a wedding that wasn’t exactly a fairy-tale (but a great story…). Since we stood in that dark garden and made promises about a future we could only imagine, a future we knew nothing about. Made promises about a life we were only beginning to build….Read More
We are closing in on the end of another year and I have found myself thinking more and more about what’s next for us, where we go from here (both figuratively and literally…our time in Alaska ends December 29th!).
