Half My Life

This week Barrett and I are celebrating sixteen years together.

Which is officially half of my life. Woo hoo!

Yes, I know we are a bit celebration-happy, having multiple weddings last year, taking the whole month of March to celebrate those wedding anniversaries this year, having a Summer of Love tour to celebrate love with all of our other loved ones (finale in Portland still to come!), and now we’re celebrating couplehood as well?

We are suckers for love. I’m thinking next year will be the year of the Honeymoons.

Here are some entertaining photos from Year One. I had to take pictures of the pictures since I haven’t figured out how to use the scanner and Barrett is doing this crazy thing called *working* so they have some weird glare and blurriness issues.

In the meantime, before the year of the Honeymoons, we are planning a BIG adventure for later this week but haven’t decided which adventure to have! Enjoy the coasty coast, cool waterfalls, shooshing rivers, or do some cupcake testing?

Any BIG adventure suggestions? We would love to hear them!

Here’s wishing you all love and someone–spouse, relative, neighbor, friend, or mailman–who continues to surprise and delight you. And (possibly even better!) is continually surprised and delighted by YOU.

Love and kisses,

  1. Congrats on 16 years Bridget!!!! Wow…that is amazing….love the pics. Hope your feeling good and think about quite often šŸ™‚

  2. Ha, Cailin! HWSNBNITB stands for He Who Shall Not Be Named In This Blog which is what Meg Cabot calls her husband in her blog and which gets stolen all over the place by writers with shy significant others.

  3. I knew it was love when we were all shopping at the toy store and Barrett was super excited to find a smurf character that you didn’t have yet. Pretty sure that was circa 1994. Nothing says love like the gift of a smurf.

  4. Those smurfs. I have dreams about turning them into cute smurfy Christmas ornaments but lack in crafty skills. Right now I just try to balance them on branches and hope for the best. šŸ™‚
