A Nerd’s Wedding Album

A look back at our wedding from 7 years ago.

My favorite little series of pictures from our wedding are the ones where we sign the documents required by the State of Michigan.  It was fun.

Married Around the World

I like this idea.  A couple got married in 2011, and then traveled the world to do it all over again everywhere they went.  Most of them in South America.

From the 22 Words Blog.

St. Nick Fan Club

My wife has made me love Christmas.  I wasn’t always the biggest fan, but recently, I’ve joined the St. Nick fan club.  She convinced me for three reasons, and all of them selfish.  She gave me great presents this year.  She was able to tie 2 of my favorite things together with her thoughtfulness.

First, she got me a camp cot.  I like camping, but I never sleep well.  Air mattresses always hurt my back and I always wake up laying on the ground.  The mattress ravaged by cold nights and small leaks.  The cot is long enough for my 6’3″ frame.  It can also hold up to 600 lbs.  I think it has me covered.

Second, she got me a chef coat.  For the past 6 months I have been cooking up a storm.  I love food.  My increasing girth is evidence of that fact.

Finally, a cook book for campers.  Written by a couple who traveled around the world on their bicycles.  The aforementioned girth is probably going to preclude me from circumnavigating the globe on a bike, but the cooking tips, the stories, will inspire our next road trip.
