I maybe should have posted about this earlier in the week but well, this week kinda flew by!

This past Sunday was Adam and I's first wedding anniversary! It certainly hasn't felt like a year since the wedding - BANANAS! We took an overnight trip down to northern California to see some redwoods and lots of coast and mountains. It was a perfect little getaway.

Southern Oregon coast

I think one of the highlights of the trip was probably me rapping some Nicki Minaj to Adam but he might feel differently.

Other highlights included:
- Seeing a bear hanging out across the river from the inn we stayed at.
- All of the innkeepers thinking that we were a couple that had been there a few days earlier. All but one of them said something to us like.."Hey! You guys are back!" Nope, not back but apparently we looked exactly like both of them. Weird, huh?
- Maybe the best cheeseburger Adam or I have ever had - from a dark, dirty bar in Klamath. I think the innkeeper that recommended it to us was excited to have younger guests that she could suggest such a place to.
- Adam's entry in the guest journal in our room:
May 15, 1908
Day 21 of our expedition, and a dark one at that. We experienced a hippo attack on the river today. We killed the dastardly savage, but not before losing the raft. Thankfully, the crew is all safe, but the loss of supplies will be a most unwelcome burden in the future.
N'kumba says we're still ten days from the point. Col. Potter says the previous expedition was lost. Hopefully we can scavenge what we need from the wreckage. 
Jane asked if my fantasy of finding the lost city was worth my life. I scoffed at the time....Lord, I pray this all wasn't a mistake.
Yup! One whole year! I told Adam while we were driving home last weekend that the first year of marriage is supposed to be the hardest. We both laughed. I'm sure that we will have some hard years but this was not one of them. In fact, I feel that I can safely say this has been the best year we've ever had. 


  1. Congrats on the anni!! Loved the read and Adam's entry in the journal, fantastic! All The Best!
