So, today is Tim's 30th birthday. It's hard to imagine that I have known him since he was 17. When he turned 18, I sent him a fun little journal with quotes in it and a bunch of other random findings that I threw in a box, then wrote colorful stuff all over the box and mailed it. We have celebrated many birthdays apart while we were in college, and then many after that. We are officially the same age for less than a month and then I turn the next age up!
I found these pictures tonight......these are the earliest pics that I have on my computer of us, but a really fun and trying year for us too. Tim has taken me on many adventures. We met at camp....started our passion for the outdoors, soccer, Jesus, and kids all at the same time. Went to college, and had adventures writing letters across the country from Portland to Chattanooga...and I mean, MANY letters for someone you are not dating.....MANY. Actually, the highlight was always getting mail from Tim in his little chicken scratch handwriting. We have been to 44 states now together since we have been married. We quit our jobs after 2 years in Charlotte to pursue a graduate wilderness leadership program......in CANADA. With MATT. We drove from Charlotte to Calgary, Alberta (A LONG WAY), sold most all that we had, and headed off for an adventure. That year we celebrated birthdays in Plains montana at the smallest little pizza place while we were doing a week climbing trip and then my birthday was celebrated in Banff National Park. Not bad! We endured working together 24/7, which we will not ever do again.....went to class together, which we still prob. won't ever do again since we learn so differently....etc......etc.. Here are some highlights...Tim and best friend Matt climbing at Calgary Bouldering Club
I know this is a bit of rambling......as I tend to do, esp, on a friday night.....but I am truly thankful that I married that blue eyed Bryant boy from the Cove Camp. Oh, has he taken me on many adventures.....and there are many more to come! And now we have a son who is just like him! Happy Birthday babe!
