Today is our wedding anniversary. kevin and i went on a bike ride a couple of days ago and we agreed that it would be awesome to go for a bike ride today to celebrate. “we can go 16 miles to commemorate 16 years,” he said.

“That’s a great idea, but we’ve been married 14 years,” I replied. Haha! he can’t be expected to remember how long it’s been. I’d actually forgotten all about our anniversary until a few days ago.

September 16th, 2006 was a beautiful sunny day.

this is one of my favorite photos, with our sweet Mollie who had fun at the event and was only a little nervous by all the people and excitement. I bet i posted this same photo last year.

this is the picture that sums me up, i think. the morning after, eating leftover cake out of the box. there was quite a bit of leftover cake and i know we eventually ate every last bit. i made that giant cake myself which was a ridiculous amount of work.

my, i was very blonde back then.

On sunday the 17th, amy had family and a couple friends over for a lavish and lovely brunch, and then kevin and i headed down to st. louis to get on a plane to hawaii.

hmm, when will we ever get on a plane again? might not happen.

i’m very happy we’ll be taking a bike ride today and confident that we’ll go more than 14 or even 16 miles. i can’t say why we haven’t ridden our bikes together all summer; i know i didn’t get on mine at all last year. Luckily I still remember how.

We’ll come home and have steaks on the grill, a rare and delicious treat.

ok then,

mrs. hard to believe it’s already the middle of september and we’ve been married 14 years hughes. things are so good, besides the worldwide pandemic.
