3 years ago today, these two fools got hitched:
Yes, we’re huge dorks, and we’re in big dorky love with each other. There’s not much I won’t do to get a giggle out of Kim, and there’s not much she won’t do to remind me why we fell in love in the first place. Now, don’t get me wrong – things aren’t always roses and buttercups around here. We certainly have our differences, but we (almost) always find a way to compromise and work things through.
After honeymooning in Jamaica, we made a pact three years ago to spend time away from home every anniversary, and year #3 was no exception. Anniversary #1 saw us head south to Nashville, while last year saw an epic journey down the California coast. This past weekend, we packed up the trusty Subaru and traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan to attend the wedding of a couple of awesome friends and neighbors.
It turns out that Grand Rapids is, actually, a blast! Our weekend saw us at a dueling piano bar, a junk shop, an estate sale (totally random and which we almost passed, but turned a U-y and back tracked to said sale), a delicious brunch spot, and of course, the grand finale - one of the most fun weddings we’ve attended.
Great friends new and old, a photo booth, nods to New Orleans (where the happy couple got engaged), a unicorn-and-dragon-topped cake, drinking, dancing, and a couple that stands among the happiest we know reminded everyone in attendance just how much fun it can be to find the person you’re destined to spend the rest of your life with.
With three years behind us, I can honestly (finally – kidding!) say that Kim and I are soul mates, and this weekend we were fortunate enough to welcome two wonderful friends to the land of the hitched.
