Ripple


1994
first date
sunny day
road trip
meeting the moms
renting the red car
driving to Chicago
making signs
selling extra tickets while stopped in traffic
Soldier Field
village of hippies
getting tattoos in the parking lot
eating grilled cheese sandwiches
playing hacky sack
walking to Shakedown Street
cursing my Birkenstocks
Beavis and Butthead
the plethora of tie -dye in the stadium
doing a mass "wave"
sociale
Grateful Dead taking stage
hearing Sugaree
dancing
astounding visuals
fireworks
seeing old and new friends
drinking beers
taking a rest
heading home
losing my shoes
arriving at the gas station
no shoes, no service
borrowing shoes
laughing hysterically
racing with the yellow car
perfect day
perfect night.

Here we are 14 years later with 2 beautiful girls and 11 years of marriage under our belt.

Thank you for being the compassionate, thoughtful,loving, and unassuming human being that you have shown to me and that I strive to be.

You have been nothing short of excellent as a husband and now are proving to be that of a father.

Happy Anniversary Love.
