1st Annual Keech Family Anniversary Camping Trip!

Boy, that’s a mouthful! But, I love it! I love that we celebrated the conclusion of our first year of marriage doing something we love together. I love that we spent the weekend outside in this beautiful place where we get to live. I love that it was just the two of us. That we lost the trail several times along the way. That we crisscrossed over the gushing river and heard it calling all night. I love that once we reached our destination we had to climb back down to find a dry place to call home for the night. But mostly, I love that we have each other to love. That for the rest of our lives we will be there for each other, we’ll get to experience life together, we’ll get to hike together, and one day have a whole gaggle of children and grandchildren around us for our annual anniversary camping trip. I love this life, and I love this man.

Sounds promising right?

We decided to head out after lunch and enjoy a “quick hike.” John chose a location and we headed out. Shortly after we left, it started drizzling and continued off and on throughout our trek. The rain brought with it a thick, heavy fog. So we missed out on the spectacular views, but it was a fun hike, nonetheless!
