An Anniversary at Home

     We met eight years ago yesterday, January 29th. We celebrated, but very casually, by camping in our backyard. 
I made a tomato and red pepper soup in our Vitamix (ok, so it wasn't true camping)
and Scott cooked quesadillas over our chiminea fire
we talked about Scott's day as a P.E. teacher and my first day coaching surfing
then we played Gin Rummy and checkers and finished our food
    I know we have a new anniversary now that we are married, but it just doesn't feel right not to acknowledge this original anniversary in some way. That night changed us forever. When I met Scott I knew who I was, but I had no idea how he would breathe so much life into that person. And our life together is the only one I want.


  1. What a great way to commemorate such a momentous day. Quesadillas over an open flame? Delicious. I loved reading about how you guys met!

  2. how sweet,great idea to stay in the moment and enjoy each other :)

    happy anniversary!

  3. wait, is that really called a chiminea? Jon's parents have one but I totally thought they made that word up!

    Happy anniversary :)

  4. ill take that vitamix recipe, thank you very much!

  12. So sweet... Sean and I celebrated our 11 year "togther" anniversary just a few days before our big 1 year wedding anniversary. I don't think the former should be forgotten in light of the latter. Both are significant. And seriously.. how did I miss that Scott is a P.E. teacher? Is that most guys' dream job? On of my husband's dreams for sure. Somehow he missed the mark and is a high school special ed teacher. Hahah. He enjoys it so alls well that ends well.

  13. How touching "I knew who I was, but I had no idea how he would breathe so much life into that person"
