And no, Brett Michaels is not involved.
On the Summer Solstice, June 21st, 2008, we got married on the bank of the American River. On a lawn, in front of the Troublemaker rapid, in front of a rock. Our rock of love.
For the last 3 years we have celebrated our anniversary camping there. It is a magical place that holds so many wonderful memories for us. It feels like a peaceful void in the universe, where the rushing river drowns out all distractions. It’s our favorite place to relax and reconnect, and we are lucky that it is practically in our own backyard and we can escape there regularly.
This rock marks a particularly important place, being the EXACT spot that we said our vows and became husband and wife.
Here we are on that special day, 6-21-2008:

2 years later: June, 2010
3 years later: June, 2011
And now we are 3!
