This One Goes to Eleven . . . And Beyond



Happy Eleventh Anniversary, Love. It is good. Yes, it is good.

Sorry for giving you your card online. And at 11:01 p.m.

I love you more.


*Peter gave me the most fabulous gift: a backpacking trip to the Uintas. He did all the planning, shopping, most of the packing, arranged for babysitting, and only let me carry my own clothes, bedding, and water. I know, I'm the luckiest girl in the world. With some atrocious Photoshop skillz.

Congrats Mary and Peter! 11 years?! Really? I wouldn't believe it but that time line is very convincing. Happy Anniversary!

Holy crow, he planned all that? Awe. some! I can almost picture Dean doing that kind of planning for that sort of an event some time--thank Peter for giving me the idea to ask Dean to plan us a backpacking trip some time. (Like . . . in 20 years when our kids are grown up.)

P.S. That's some sweet Photoshoppin' fer sher.

congrats on the eleven!

i had to giggle at your gift. if my dh gave me a back packing trip for our anniversary, it would be our last. :) but who am i disparage... i would prefer techie toys to diamonds.

the important thing is your dh found the gift that *you* wanted.

Congrats, Drinkwaters!

I think that was a loving tribute to your union! Adorable! Also, if I may-there is a phrase in Spanish "Traga a~os" it literally means year gobbler- which of course means that you look younger than your age. I think this phrase fits the two of you perfectly! Congratulations!

Happy anniversary and congratulations.

What a clever card.
I look forward to a post with photos from backpacking the Uintas.

Thanks all for the well wishes and kind words.

Stephen, if you click the words "backpacking trip" in my post, it will take you to Peter's post with pictures from our trip.
