Portrait of an Anniversary

Sunday, May 16, 2010:

Between church meetings and dinner with the neighbors, we paused to exchange cards and appreciate the two blissful years we've shared together as husband and wife.

Then, after yet another noble but futile attempt at reading a good book, Laura succumbed, curled up next to the open window, and took a well-deserved nap. Meanwhile, Ryan took his turn in making yet another Sunday-afternoon-triple-batch of chocolate chip cookies.

Later, we'll bounce along on a pleasant walk through the neighborhood, each with a hand holding a plate of cookies to share, and with our other hands comfortably intertwined, swinging away into a happy beginning of Year Three.

Life is good.
