Two years ago, we said, “I do.” Today, we still does.

Sarah and I have a strange and wonderful relationship – I’m strange and she’s wonderful. But, somehow, she’s still smiling. In a world were so many couples struggle, what Sarah and I share is a cause for thankfulness, gratitude, pride and humility. And it’s a reason to celebrate.

So we did.

We staged a little “staycation” this weekend in our hometown, stayed at a fun place called NYLO, and lounged by the pool. It’s amazing how a short, simple getaway can be so fun when your best friend tags along!

She knew it must be Owen when: Using his laptop and assorted cables and connectors from his location bag, he rigged the hotel TV to stream netflix movies.

He knew it must be Sarah when: She requested cocoanut shrimp from Outback. They’re her favorite.

They knew they were lucky to have each other when: They were both happy to slip on 3D glasses and watch Toy Story 3. 

Strange and wonderful, indeed. Happy anniversary, babe!

Husband. Dad. Pastor. I like to capture moments, pull their threads, and see what unravels. Lead well, read well, think well. And grace. Lots of grace.

  1. Wow, has it been 2 years already? Congrats you two!

    Clarinda and I are planning a getaway to Sedona in July (it’ll be 11 years). She’s NEVER BEEN to Sedona. I’m not sure how you can live in AZ you’re whole life and not have been to Sedona, but hey, whatever (I took her to the Grand Canyon our first year of marriage because she had never been there either).

    It sounds like you guys had a great time enjoying each other’s company. Party on, mi verde hombre.

    1. Thanks, bro! Time flies when you’re having fun, right?

      I can’t believe it’s 11 years for you and Clarinda. Wow! Good call on Sedona. It’s one of our favorite places. Sarah and I stayed there over New Year’s – the views and hiking are spectacular. Take the camera and relax! When you go, you have to eat at Wild Flower Bread Company and sit on the balcony.
