(8 years)

today marks eight years of marriage for matt & i. there is so much i could write about marriage, about love, about life with another person. i will leave it to someone far better with words... to a writer that makes me think of matt. wendell berry wrote the following poem for & about his wife. i include it today for my husband, who loves me despite the fact that i am a handful.

"the wild rose" wendell berry

Sometimes hidden from me
in daily custom and in trust,
so that I live by you unaware
as by the beating of my heart,

Suddenly you flare in my sight,
a wild rose blooming at the edge
of thicket, grace and light
where yesterday was only shade,

and one again I am blessed, choosing
again what I chose before.


  1. Happy 8 years. You two are so lovely together, honestly.

    (Love these words by Wendell Berry, too.)

  2. WHAT? We both got married on the same Saturday, just a year apart! (now that I type this, I am thinking that I knew this and typed something similar to you last year??). Happy anniversary to two wonderful people!!

  3. love the photo at the hi-line. did you guys see the glassed-in stadium seating to enjoy the traffic? great urban fun in a fish-bowl. hope you enjoyed your eating your way through the art world of manhattan line.

  4. Hope the trip was memorable. Have a great Anniversary.

  5. Happy anniversary, our 8th is tomorrow. Remember our wedding craziness at Benevides the weeks before BOTH of our weddings? Fun memories with you! Wish I was going to New York for my anniversary - jealous!
