So much has changed in three years, but at the same time, so much is the same.
Three years ago I wanted to make sure I had the right hair, the right dress, the right cake. Yesterday I wanted to make sure I didn't get blown off a mountain by a storm, I wore 5 layers of tops including three different jackets, and I forgot about the smushed up hostess cupcakes in the bottom of my pack.
Three years ago we got ready for our big event as we watched a storm blow in bringing rain, lightning, thunder, and very dark clouds... the weather threatened our plans to take pictures out in Red Rocks park after the wedding. The weather cleared just in time and we were able to carry out our plans. Yesterday we got ready for our big event and we watched a storm blow in bringing rain and puffy darkish clouds... the weather threatened our plans to climb four 14ers. The weather cleared just in time and we were able to carry out our plans.
Three years ago we stood in front of all of our friends and family and promised to love each other and take care of each other no matter what, for the rest of our lives. Yesterday we stood by ourselves at 14,286 feet and kept that promise.
Happy anniversary Christopher! Life has been an adventure since meeting you six and a half years ago, and I suspect it always will be. Thank you for joining me on the ride.
Notice the "nice" weather on the left of my head and the cloud roaring in to the right of my head. I didn't see this cloud coming on the top of Mt. Democrat, I looked down to get Turbo's treat out, looked up, and POOF, we were surrounded.
