As is my custom I rifled thorough the last year of snaps for a photo of Andrew's wedding ring-- in celebration of our two year anniversary today-- and this came up. I don't post an image of a captured cutthroat trout from our flyfishing expedition lightly (as my eyes dart to the mention of Martha Stewart on my right) and yet this seems to convey what our love has been about this year: rolling up our sleeves, getting our hands dirty and bringing to these experiences love, curiosity and respect. Our beloved friends-- so many present on our wedding day-- constantly model how to do this. Friends like Alex (pictured above), a masterful angler who lured this beautiful fish from the water with such an arresting grace and calm and sensitivity that the current nearly swept me away.
