Our next big adventure

So as you guys probably know by now Matt and I have been on many, many adventures together. We’ve climbed to the top of mountains:
Dead woman’s Pass, Inca Trail, Peru – Sept 2007

And lived in places where we didn’t speak the language.
Copenhagen, Denmark – June 2001

We’ve driven across the country and back:
Arches National Park June 2002

Skied ridiculous mountains
Vail, April 2006

And eaten ridiculous things
Ceviche, in Lima, Peru – Sept. 2007

We’ve even survived more mundane adventures such as college:
freshman year
Studio freshman year. I'd comment on how young we look but this photo was taken 10 years ago. We were young.


I wanted to put a pic of us at MArch graduation with our pretty hoods on here but sadly I couldn’t find one. I’m going to have to keep digging, though because this is a pretty important thing we conquered together.

Home renovations:
Patio - May 2006
Patio - May 2006
Building our patio – May 2006

Football Season:
Steelers Superbowl

Pittsburgh after the Steelers won the superbowl

And 3 plus years of marriage:

2 year anniversary

But something tells me that of all the things we've done and all the places we've been our next adventure is going to be way crazier and way more rewarding than anything we’ve ever attempted before:

Two lines!!!
We’re going to be parents!!!

Two lines!!!
Terrible picture of us taken at 6:30 in the morning about five minutes after that line turned blue. We’re half asleep and unshowered but you can tell how excited we are.

I think this will be the best adventure yet.
