August 16, 1991...

Twenty two years.  It doesn't seem like all that long but has been literally half a lifetime now.  A small wedding at home.  Truly the world's smallest affair.  When I look back on it now I wonder what I was thinking when I planned it that way.  A backyard barbecue, some cake and nuptials.  The honeymoon was equally low key.  We planned to camp out for a week at Lookout Mountain while Rick did his hang gliding and I swam in the pool.  We ended up leaving the camp site for a "lunch ride" on the motorcycle and were gone for 5 days.  We took a detour from Chattanooga TN to Asheville NC, up the Blue Ridge Parkway and back.  No extra clothes to change into, just a sense of adventure.  The best trip ever. 


Ups and downs.  His love of adrenaline sports, my love of the more mainstream sports :)  College graduations, job changes, leaps of faith.  Lots of maturing took place over the years for both of us.  Here we are twenty two years later and have never been happier.     





Happy Anniversary, Rick.  Love you with all my heart :)
