Like any year, we have had plenty of ups and as well as many downs. We have struggled, we have learned and we have lived. We have LIVED! That is the important part. As a couple, we took a risk. We took a chance and said, lets go for it. Our life is unknown and the future is always unwritten. Leaving our future open to possibilities, to adventure and to excitement is our goal. This year we began that. We walked out of our house and into a RV. We sold 90% of our belongings, jumped head first into something uncharted by either of us and put our faith in God. Here we are, still in love. Wow. And that was just this year. In the past 11 years, we have moved roughly 4 times, lost many loving family members, had our son battle cancer, lost my brother to the war, have been financially broke and so much more. But on the other hand, we hold countless wonderful memories. We have traveled, we have seen pieces of the world, we've shared our love of adventure with the kids, we've learned new sports, experienced so many amazing friendships, met amazing people, and continue to grow in our marriage. It may not be perfect, but then again, nothing ever is. This is our marriage and as long we can continue to go through this thing called life and enjoy each others company, then I'd say we are doing rather well. Here is to another year filled with love, laughter and adventure! Happy 11 years!!
