living happily ever after.

once upon a time, in a land so very far away... a girl met a boy. the setting was picturesque, a quaint little ski village nestled away in the mountains.

as the fates would have it, both the boy and girl happened to be alone, one particular afternoon, in this magical winter wonderland. & as if destined to meet, together they rode the last chair lift of the day, to the top of the mountain. as they began their journey, the snow began to fall softly, as the sun was slowly setting, casting a beautiful, soft amber glow. and as the fairy tale goes (and you can only imagine), it was love-at-first-sight. by the end of that momentous chair life ride, they had fallen madly in love, each knowing that they had finally met "the one".

okay, so maybe that really isn't exactly how it happened. but we did meet at sundance, & for one of the parties involved there may, or may not, have been a slight inkling of love-at-first sight, although it may have taken the other party a couple of months to notice. but, seven years after pledging our eternal love to one another, we are still just as happy, & more in love than ever.

as they say "life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." and together, jeffy & i have had plenty of take your breath away type of moments: we've feed the sharks in bora bora, rocked out at more concerts than i can count, survived the wilds of australia, had two wild & crazy boys & a pup named gigi, sailed the spanish coast, remodeled our entire house - ourselves, got lost in italy, went to the winter olympics, surfed in hawaii, cheered for the angels more times than i can count, snowboarded beneath the shadows of the matterhorn, made it out of canada alive, practically lived at disneyland - we've been so many times, kissed with the eiffel tower looming overhead, graduated law school, passed the bar exam & in the process of setting up a new law practice, kissed the blarney stone, finished my MBA program, scootered around greece, attended the tour de france & to many other adventures to name.

all that's left for us? to continue living happily ever after.

Hi Kelly! I love that picture, it's gorgeous--makes me want to re-do my wedding pictures! You all have had an impressive run and really have seen and done, well, almost all of it! Way to go on some great years and congratulations. :)

PS. You're pretty much my hero for everything you've done in life. Seriously, can you be my mentor?? (and you think I'm kidding...)
