Cinco de Marcey x 6!

Warning: guest post follows. Read at your own risk.

As today marks the 6th anniversary of Cinco de Marcey, I've decided try to pick a single post which exemplifies / highlights each year of our marriage.

Year 1:
The start of a tradition:
Who knew how much this would take off? I give Laurie a hard time about this every year, but I guess I'm glad she makes me keep doing it.

Year 2:
Not sure if this falls in year 2 or in year 3, but I'm going to claim it as Year 2.
I feel like this trip shaped what our future vacations have been / will be. I don't think either of us knew how much we would love hiking, exploring, getting lost together - we hope that Drake likes it too, because he's going to get dragged into it whether he likes it or not.

Year 3:
The post that launched 1000 ships (or at least 1000 house projects)
I don't think that I had the typical home buying process - my 30 under 30 wife put in countless hours (mostly without my knowledge) to track down the perfect home for us. All I had to do was say I was ready and *poof* I was a home owner.

Year 4:
Not a trip, but a truly an experience.
Not that we needed any more activities to take up, but once we started coaching these guys, we just couldn't give it up. The time and effort involved is no small feat, but every year we just keep coming back because of how great these young men are.

Year 5:
Lots of fun to be had in this year, but the Hawaii trip was truly amazing.
Knowing what was coming in Year 6 made the timing of this one all the more important. There is no one else I'd rather hike or kayak or just lounge by the pool with.

Year 6:
This one is pretty easy:
This guy has truly changed our world for the best and we are so lucky to have him. I'm so proud of the mother that Laurie has become and love every day of our crazy life together.

Honorable Mention:

Thanks to my wonderful, beautiful wife for 6 amazing years. I love you so much and couldn't imagine my life without you.
