2013 in Review
Dear Tawny, it’s that time of year again. I know how winter can pull you inside of yourself and make you look back on what you’ve done. I hope that you realize what a good year this was. We took a leap, again, and landed on our feet. Another year, living independently and living the dream. Our dream. Here’s a toast to 2013, may it burn brightly in our memories far into our twilight years.
So say we all.
We set out to claim our destiny
We finally went to Hawaii together
I met your family for the first time
We became Expedia ViewFinders
We went to England
We made it to Paris! For the first time!
Even though you booked our flight a day early and we arrived in Paris during a snow storm… with no place to stay.
Luckily May took us in.
We explored Vienna
And it was perfect
We went to Hungary for a day trip
We even went to the hot springs in Hungary
We locked our love down in Paris
We drank wine across all of Europe
You got to try Hungarian goulash for the first time… in Hungary.
We did Venice in style, with Go with Oh
We lived in Rome for a week
And made pizza
And you discovered a secret zeal for truffle oil
We stormed castles
And somehow, through it all, you looked smoking hot.
We discovered Alberta
You learned how to rock climb
There were even more hot springs
We went to TBEX… and it was glorious
We met our soul mates
You tried to get a sister wife
And there was much rejoicing
We rode on one of the world’s oldest carrousels and you got the ring in the goal
We finally figured out what this was
We sailed on lake Superior
We bought a car
And you looked really smoking hot
We explored Edmonton
You arched in the 7th Annual Castle Staudinger Tournament
Oh that’s right, and you won gold.
We fought zombies
We got to go hiking with some of our favorite people in the world, NVR
We also got to go hiking with this little guy
We also babysat this character
You learned how to pan for gold… and were really good at it
You had, literally, almost too many bachelorette parties to count.
We went to Vegas… a lot
And you ALWAYS looked smoking hot. Also kind of like a sunbear
I finally hiked the Enchantments
We helped Expedia out
We canned about a thousand things of beans and asparagus for wedding favors
We spent time with the finest people in the world
Yes. We got married.
This also happened.
We got to eat at the Grizzly house, and it was THE BEST
You learned to surf
We had a honeymoon here
There were many ziplines
AND WAY MORE HORSES
Like, so many horses
More horses than you can imagine
We got to see your family again!
We kayaked through abandoned tunnels
You tried something new with your hair
We went to Croatia!
Not to mention, we finally got to travel with Brock. I think you two put a hit on someone…
You conquered your fear of the Ocean
We got to hang out with Miss. Nevada… who is sublime
You discovered that you love to shoot people with NERF guns
We went to Slush Cup
We practiced good oral hygiene
And yes, you looked good
We, after 2.5 years away, returned home to Korea
We stayed with our family
We invented Kimono ball
We celebrated our victories
We learned from our failures
We refused to backdown
And it was a good year
And of course, you looked really good
Be proud, Tawny. This was a good year. I wouldn’t have wanted to walk its long road with anyone other than you. May 2014 be ten fold the glory of 2013!

Could you two be more disgustingly cute if you tried? Yes, Tawny is totally smoking hot, and yes, you had a killer year. (Oh yeah, and if I had to pick a sister wife, it would also be Alex!) How about 2014 be the year we meet???
Such a beautiful walk down memory lane. Thanks for sharing your journey with us and INSPIRING us all! I had the privilege of meeting you at TBEX (one of my highlights) after admiring you from cyber land. You are as beautiful, smart, funny, and REAL in person as you are on your website. God Bless You two as you continue to shine and live life fully. You inspire so many–me included! Have the Merriest Christmas and a Glorious New Year!
