Anniversary Trip

“We need a witness to our lives.  There’s a billion people on the planet, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything.  The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things, all of it, all of the time, every day.  You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it.  Your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness’.”  

Jon and I celebrated our 8th anniversary in May.  We initially planned to spend the weekend in Chicago, but we drove to Indy instead when we learned that NATO was going to shut the city down.  (Thank you, Sarah!)  We quickly booked a room downtown, packed a few things and headed south with no set plans aside from a few restaurants we wanted to hit.  We walked, shopped, ate, slept and talked.  It was awesome.  On Saturday afternoon, we went down to the canal and rented bikes – I highly recommend it!
