Our 2-year Anniversary

Today is the day, and it’s hard to believe that two years have passed already!
Steampunk Wedding

We’ve been so incredibly busy that the time went by way too fast!

Tomorrow we’re going on an anniversary trip, and we’re probably less prepared for this trip than any other.  As usual, the details of this trip will be kept a secret, at least until we land and begin posting.

Even after our 4 flights together (NYC, Las Vegas, Madison/Chicago, San Francisco), my girl still doesn’t like flying!  There may be no cure for her aviophobia, but at least she’ll do almost anything for an adventure!

Since we’ve been married, we’ve made two trips around the sun.

Which means we’ve already travelled about 1,168,133,746 miles at an average speed of 67,108.1 miles per hour.  The math isn’t perfect (because our orbit is elliptical), but I think the data is close enough to make a point:

We don’t need to worry so much about flying in airplanes, because we’re already travelling on a much larger scale.

As much as it makes sense to me, I know I’m still going to hold her tight during takeoff and landing (and any crazy turbulence we get along the way).  That’s OK, too!

Not only is our trip going to be very last-minute (which helps add spontaneity), but some of our other anniversary plans seem to have suffered complications as well.  I know she had at least one surprise for me that didn’t work out, and I had one for her that didn’t happen (yet).

We can still look forward to a relaxing get-away, and time to spend with each other.
There’s nothing more I could ask for.

What you can look forward to, is reading about another one of our adventures in a far-away city, full of interesting facts, and unique selfies (some of which may even make you sick).

For all those who are afraid to fly, don’t feel bad, even The Shatner is not crazy about it.

Meanwhile, across town…

We’re in SEATAC, and about to board our flight.  The forecast shows clear sunny skies Thursday through Sunday!  What more could we ask for?

Jenny could ask for another way to get there.

A slight case of aviophobia at first, but she eventually got on the plane, even with a smile!


Red-eye flights are the best!  Except when a passenger brings their small, annoying, yapping dog on board.  An unexpected disturbance to our mid-flight nap at 30,000 feet.

Almost there.  It will be daylight when we land, and we’ll hit the ground running!
