It’s crazy that it’s been four years since these were taken (thanks Facebook’s “On This Day” feature). We were working in laser tag places and floral departments in grocery stores and having so much fun while struggling with post-dorm life and rent. Now, I’m older, noticing fine facial lines, feeling joint aches and pains, and planning international trips around theoretical, future children. (Wonder if a baby will be the next big reason for a profesh photo session 😳) We’re all getting older, but it’s a nice feeling to look back on “difficult” periods with that sour sweetness in your heart. ❤️🌹👠 . . . . . . #love#itsnotananniversary#butitfeelslikeone#foreveryoung#rootless#stillhavenoideawhatimdoing#keeptraveling#live#feelingold#feelinggold#maybeitstimeforanewtown
Did surprisingly well. Might run away to work at renaissance festivals. I could probably make a living selling flower crowns given what I paid for one. Dunno yet. 🏹 #renaissancefestival#renaissancefaire#renfaire#upstatenewyork#archery#exploreyourbackyard#explore#love#weekendaway
Hbd to my favorite globetrotting, opera singing, whiskey drinking, VR playing stud! 🎉🎈🎊 “If you don’t like something about your life, change it,” you probably never actually said out loud at any time, but embodied anyway. You’ve always been so fearless, passionate, and full of love. From replanting ourselves in a foreign garden, to becoming shrimp farmers, to coming back and supporting drastic career changes, you’re always ready for the next thing. You keep getting better with age, and I, for one, couldn’t be more excited to see where your path leads. We can’t make it to a beach or another country this year to celebrate, but I’ve got an ~otherworldly~ gift I think you might like. (Dragons may or may not be involved.) 🧙🏽♂️⚔️🐉 #happybirthday#hbd#loveyou#tb
🥂 Here’s a snap from our first vacation together like 7 years ago. I met your family in Miami after dating you for just a few months, and I don’t think I ever heard so much Spanish in my life or had such good food (gracias, Abuelita😉). 💜 I love you through fedora periods and beyond, and I look forward to every beach day we have. But even inland, I know you’ll bring the sun. Thanks for making me ugly laugh, dragging me outside, getting me to play RPGs with you and your internet friends, and always being willing to change up the life equation when things get too claustrophobic. Ithaca, Denver, San Jose, Los Angeles, upstate New York, Denver again, Ecuador - I don’t think we can convince anyone anymore that we know what we’re doing, but I know I love the ride. 🧡 And thanks so much for proposing to me at one of the Ithaca College towers that first night we hung out after a party. I rolled my eyes and indulged you, not thinking we’d end up here. But here is where we are. I even got two dogs out of the whole thing! The benefits keep adding up, and I thought tax season was when I scored the most. 😘 But in all seriousness, I love you and life is easiest with you around. You’re the real MVP. 💛 #marriedlife#happyanniversary#fiveyears#cantbelievenooneevenquestionedmegettinghitchedattwenty#isthisthewoodone#love#bffgoals#dontworry#therealproposalwasindenver#wehadfranziaafter Also, completely unrelated: Where did all of our shirts go? ❤️
Get out of the house for a few hours and then rest for a few hours because being in public is exhausting. I am old now, or so say my knees, and I wonder if I’ll see these shops phased out in my lifetime. At least I’ll have pictures of Spotify IRL for the young ones if they ever pry their eyes away from whatever fancy glass tech they’ll be using.
