We celebrated 13 years of commitment to one another this week! And started it off with an EPIC DINNER at Gypsy Soul restaurant, which focuses on local high quality real foods. Our “keep the romance” date night included Oysters, Brussels Sprouts with Pork Jowl and Cranberries, Swordfish with Pumpkin Puree, and outrageous Short Ribs. The food was out of this world incredible, and the time spent with each other was even better.
We are so thankful for each other and this wonderful life we get to spend together. We are true partners who challenge, support, and help one another in every facet of life – which has pushed us each to become BETTER VERSIONS OF OURSELVES. Thirteen years, and more in love every day!
(PS- how can you not be madly in love with a guy who writes things like this!)
Read all about how we met and fell in love, the catalyst that caused us to actually tie-the-knot, and the family you’ve come to know through our blog from our 10 year vow renewal recap series!
Stacy is surrounded by an incredible group of strong women! Positive peer pressure sounds a lot like this: “What do you guys want to do today?” “Let’s pull a truck!” These girls are so INSPIRING AND FUN! So after squatting all the weight while training, Stacy got in the harness and took a jaunt in her beloved Reebok high-tops – wet pavement? No problem!
Then on her actually anniversary, Stacy came home early from work to find Cole andFinn in the kitchen all by themselves, with Beyond Bacon open on the counter, making BACON-WRAPPED DATES. They’re getting so gosh darn big… we wish they’d stop! But we love what thoughtful caring people they are becoming.
Congrats to Our Friends!

And we were so completely honored write the forward for this gorgeous book we got to preview when we met Jenny in San Diego in 2014!

It’s my duty to bring you the best of the best. I eat chocolate for you guys. Because I love you. And chocolate. And especially these:
