5 Year Anniversary, 1 Year Late
I realize the title of this blog is pretty confusing. Let me clarify. Shay and I are celebrating our six year wedding anniversary today! However, my gift to him is a video I put together with footage from our five year anniversary. Bare with me.
Last year Shay and I celebrated our five year wedding anniversary in Arizona, and as a gift to him I booked us a hot air balloon ride. I never got around to editing the footage, until recently. Life happened, and I sort of forgot about it. I really enjoyed piecing together these video clips, and I found myself smiling the whole time I was putting this short film together. I think I've already watched it a dozen times!
A few things to note: (1) we rode in the largest hot air balloon in North America (2) while landing we took out someone's fence (3) At one point I thought we might die (4) I highly recommend doing this if you ever get the chance!
I read this quote to Shay recently and we both agreed that it was a pretty great analogy for marriage. Specifically, I thought it was a great analogy for our marriage.
Marriage is a long walk two people take together. Sometimes the terrain is very interesting, sometimes rather dull. At times the walk is arduous, for both persons or for one. Sometimes the conversation is lively; at other times, there is not much to say. The travelers do not know exactly where they are going, nor when they will arrive. But they share everything they have. And they find that it is a lot more fun, and also a great help, to walk with a companion rather than alone. - Thomas N. Hart
