Photos + Anniversary: This is Us...

April 11, 2011

April 11 marks a monumental day in my life... It’s my wedding anniversary! 

This year, April 11 marks a few others things as well... The first being: we’re headed off for a few days away.  I’ll still post during this time—most likely briefer, photo-based pieces, though...

Today is also the date of the online #JournalChat Live featuring this past post as the centerpiece for discussion.  I'm participating this insightful discussion (5 EST)--while enjoying some yummy herbal tea at a local café where we are headed.  Sure hope you can join me for the online chat (The deets can be found here.)!

In celebration of my wedding anniversary, here are a few photos—of me and Mark--throughout the years.  Uh huh, this is us!
