Day 3293 – Outdoor Concert + Mosh Pit = Muddy Mr. & Mrs. G

One thing Bret and I like to do is go to Thrice concerts and get in the mosh pit. The last show we went to was outside, and the pit was just a little dusty…

Day 3289 – Sneak Peek Of Our Trip!

Wooooo doggie, what a trip! It included pigging out and eating almost an entire (small) cheesecake, an unexpected nude beach, breathtaking views (see below) from the Long Island Lighthouse, one of the best meals and bar experiences we’ve ever had, a super fun (and dusty) concert with Thrice, and great conversations. Stay tuned for more pictures and stories!

Day 3287 – Nine Trips Around The Sun, 3287 Days, Nine Years As A Wife

Nine years ago today, I entered into the most serious commitment of my life.

I didn’t realize what I would be gaining by saying I do and cleaving to my new husband.

I gained the very best friend I have ever known. Someone who has accepted me as I am, through my struggle with alcoholism.

I gained a business partner, not once, but twice. I did not see either of those coming!

I gained someone who would push me to be the best version of myself. While it’s awesome to say someone accepts you as you are, it’s even better to have someone who sees what you could be and encourages you to become that.

I gained the best travel buddy I could ask for.

I gained a mosh pit buddy.

To celebrate, we’re taking a short road trip to Long Island to see our favorite band, Thrice. I love that we’re doing all the things that I love about us on this trip.

Happy anniversary B/Husband Pants/Huz/Dar dar/Bret, you are one of the best things that has happened to me, and I’m so glad I get to walk this crazy life with you by my side.

Day 3282 – Funny Faces At Wild Water Adventure Park In Clovis, California

Yesterday we spent the day at Wild Water Adventure Park. We tried to take some underwater photos and this was us preparing to go under. I think it’s also a representation of the fun we have in our marriage. It had been a long time since I spent time at a water park and it was a really fun day!
