A Five-Year Adventure

As of today, T & I are now five years married!  And I think Heriot-Watt’s MA programme recognises it, as they have granted us a day of self-directed study (no class, I can stay at home today!).  So instead of self-directing my study I am instead writing a wee post.


February 11, 2006, Melbourne Beach, Florida

Five years ago I married someone who I thought was my best-friend. Turns out when you marry a guy like Trent you find there is a whole new bonus level to best-friendship I never dreamed possible. Thanks for all the fun, fella.

    Thanks everyone!!! Navneet and Carol got it right! & if Paul & Angeli were in the shot (as that was taken while they visiting), you would add 3 more handmades to the count!

    Aww, congratulations!! That first photo is adorable. You look so happy! Kind of wild you went from palm trees to snow.

    Hey, is that last photo possibly taken behind a university with dorms called Pollock Halls? If it is, I’ve been there! I climbed a hill in Edinburgh several times to see the view of the city and even played bagpipes from the top of the hill! Anyways, just a random note, it’s probably not the same place but reminded me of it 🙂
