On October 10th of last year, Corbin and I said our vows to spend the rest of our lives together. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and when I look back through the pictures and think about that day of love, family, friends, music, dancing, good food, and wine, I feel so grateful and happy.15517_10152781810554865_2551293568968015144_n

A lot has changed since that day. I finally graduated and got my BS in Anthropology and celebrated by dying my hair red, Corbin got a new job, and we moved to our dream city of Portland. But besides the obvious big life changes, there are all of the big and little changes that go unseen by most people. Like changes in relationships, changes in how you feel about yourself, and changes in how you see and perceive the world.  These are the changes that I believe are most significant. Even in just one year, Corbin and I have been through so many challenges together. But these challenges are what I am most grateful for, because even after knowing this man for the last decade of my life, we continue to learn and grow together.

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary we decided to run away into the forest of our beautiful Pacific Wanderland to sleep under the stars, drink wine by the campfire, explore beautiful waterfalls, make fairy houses by a pond,  indulge in large portions of campfire breakfasts, and most importantly, be unreachable by the modern world. It was perfect.

I wonder what this next year will bring.

    Hey you two,
    I like the blog idea. I studied American Literature and although I love vidoes and vlogs, I still very much enjoy the written word. In you next Q&A can you talk a little about your future plans? Kelsey do you plan to study more or are you looking for a job? What kind of jobs are you dreaming about with your studies. I imagine anthropology is a very specific field which doesn’t have as many job opportunities as some other fields…? And Corben are you still in journalism? Do you plan to buy a house or do you rather live for rent, able to move around more?
    Looking forward to your next video!

      Hey Stefanie,
      Those are great questions and we will be doing another Q&A sometime soon. We will sure try to answer them all 🙂 Happy Holidays!

    When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked on the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service?

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time
    choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
