We're back from the Sunshine State! We had a lovely vacation in Miami, which I will blog about over the next day or so, but this post (brief as it is) shall be devoted primarily to today's milestone: our second wedding anniversary.
It is extremely hard to believe that we have been married for only two years -- because we've known each other for so much longer. At the same time, it's even harder to believe two years have already gone by. Crazy.
We deliberately came back yesterday so we could enjoy today together without spending most of it in airports (traveling for nine hours wasn't exactly how we wanted to celebrate). It was very nice to wake up at home again without any need to be anywhere. Though we certainly did some traveling this morning. Shortly before our trip, we managed to acquire a used bike for me (yay for Craigslist!). What better day than today to give it an inaugural ride, we thought. So we made our way to one of the trailheads in our area and took off.
The path was actually a former railroad line, and it still has some of its original trestle bridges. In general, the grade was pretty gentle, so we were able to talk comfortably as we rode side by side, taking in the sights, including a pick-your-own produce farm as well as a campground. In fact, we were so engrossed by the views that we didn't realize how far we had biked! In total, we logged a round trip of about 22 miles. Not bad for a first ride after many years' hiatus from riding at all. But I'm pretty sure I'm going to feel it tomorrow ...
I want to say something reflective and sentimental here, but our anniversary isn't over yet and we have lots of things planned for our last day of vacation. So the deeper thoughts will have to wait -- we are off to see WALL-E, and then we'll have dinner on the waterfront. More news soon, I promise!
