i think this is my favorite wedding photo. the first dance. all wrapped up in him. holding on for dear life because he was going to be the only one to hold on to.
it's hard to believe that we've been married for nine years already. where has time gone? in some ways it was just like yesterday. and in other ways it seems like so long ago. so much has happened in that time, yet so much remains the same. like, for instance, it took us all week and at least 30 minutes searching online this afternoon of where we were going to have our anniversary dinner. we have a hard time deciding.

hard to believe i've been living in the northwest for nine years. the other day i was driving to costco to pick up some stuff and i was driving down 1st street, jamming to k-love and minding my own business, when all of a sudden mt. hood just popped out in all it's snow covered glory. it was almost like i forgot i lived in the mountains for a moment. it still takes my breath away. people who live here all their lives tune out the mountains, but the transplants, well, we carry umbrellas and stare at the mountains. and i happen to have a husband who bought me an umbrella and drives when we go places so i can mountain watch.

happy anniversary, babe. thanks for nine incredible years so far.
i love you.
