A few weeks ago Jen and I celebrated our 13th anniversary. As any good husband would, I took the day off from work and …. wait, it was a federal holiday? Oh, yeah, that’s right. Thank you, Christopher Columbus.
As I look back on the day, it sure felt like we did things I wanted to do. Jen continually says that spending time with me is the treat, not necessarily doing anything special. So, really, it’s her fault we went hiking, had lunch with my mother, and attended a Jazz game.
We decided to hike the Y in Provo. Neither of us had done it since we were in college many years ago. It was a nice steep hike and Austin, our hiking companion, did fairly way about 3/4 the way up. Then he tripped and he was physically and mentally done. We carried him the rest of the way.
Anyway, it’s been a great 13 years. We’ve had so much fun together and we’ve got a love that will last forever. I’ve grateful to have found this great woman!
