You Are The Love Of My Life


Happy Anniversary, Tracy.

Fourteen years ago today my beautiful wife, Tracy, married me at the Edgefield on the hottest day of the year. So much of that day is a blur, but I’ll never forget the site of her walking down the aisle. She was so beautiful in her wedding gown, but I would have taken her if she had come to stand beside me wearing nothing but a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.  On that day I was bonded to my soul mate, and it will always be one of the greatest days of my life.

Tracy, I know things have not always been easy with me, and I know that we have spent years toughing our way through loss and difficulties, but you have always been the high point in my life and at the end of it all, your love has carried me past the points where I would have broken. You are the mother of my children and I could not have asked for better.  With so many years behind us, I look forward to so many more years ahead and I count myself as blessed for having you as my wife. You are as beautiful today as you were the day we were married, and you shall always be the love of my life.

Happy Anniversary

Edgefield In the Morning


What seems like a lifetime ago my wife and I spent a cold March weekend at McMenamin’s Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. When we woke in the morning there was snow outside. This picture was taken from our open window down on the Little Red Shack. Just beyond there was where we were married. It is one of my favorite places in the world for so very many reasons. This winter and the snow we have had so far leaves me missing it more than ever.
