10 YEARS. Ten years ago on April 12, 2005 – in Quito, Ecuador – in a salsa dancing bar – I met the man who would change the course of my life. It has been quite the ride to say the least, and travel and adventure has always been a theme in our relationship from the beginning. Agustin, our journey spans over 10 years, 5 continents, 9 countries, 2 nationalities, and 2 languages, and I can’t imagine living this wild adventure with anyone else but you. Agustin, you have walked with me through my greatest joys and deepest trials and have never left my side. Even during seasons where we had oceans between us, I always knew when I needed you the most – you would be on the next plane before I even had a chance to say otherwise. I thank God every day for the privilege I have to walk alongside you, to cheer you on, to be silly with you, to date you, cook with you, explore with you, and pursue Jesus with you. Thank you for being everything and so much more than the man I dreamed of marrying. I love you babe! Happy 10 years of adventuring!
This past weekend we went to Long Beach, (which is on the Washington Coast) with a group of a friends for an unplugged, adventure filled weekend. It was not until we were driving up to our friends’ beach house that we realized that Sunday would mark the 10 year anniversary of the day we met. I love that. I love that while we were in route to our next adventure, we realized that our 10 year anniversary of meeting was over the weekend, but no plans needed to change. Spending the weekend hiking and exploring the Washington coast with friends was the perfect way to celebrate. Agustin, here is to another 10 years!!
