Our Family’s Newest Addition

We were blessed to receive a large amount of albums from Aaron’s late uncle. These albums are absolute gems! They are in excellent condition and are a nice reminder of Uncle Mark. We had no idea he had such great musical taste. Every album seems to be a winner. And Aaron really wanted to take good care of them so we scoured IKEA looking for a perfect match. The glossy grey was a hard sale for me but I think Aaron was right and it looks great in our place. It looks like us, It reminds us of family and it just plain looks cool! So, thanks Uncle Mark…we love and miss you.

Our actual anniversary, Sunday, started off fantastic with the Dutch Bros. guy giving us free coffee for our anniversary. Thank you guy whose name I don’t know! Due to our lack of funds (and sense of adventure, folks!) we decided to go for a hike. Aaron picked “Todd Lake” which is about 20 miles from our house. I have failed all of you because not only did I forget my fancy pants camera but I also forgot my iPhone! Doh! It was so scenic and I can’t even find a picture online. Total fail.
