on our second date, tyler had it in his mind that we would leisurely bike up to the ice caves, have a romantic quiche and sparkling apple juice picnic, and climb into the caves and discover natural ice sculptures together.
although most of his plans turned out exactly as he had planned, the whole leisurely biking through the mountains part ended up being a laboriously breathing, excessively sweating, going slightly dizzy ordeal for me. i didn't know i was so out of shape. and neither did ty...
and yet, he still fell in love with me, and i eventually forgave him for my embarrassment and fell for him, too.
so, four years later, on our second anniversary, we made more quiche, found our favourite cranberry apple sparkling apple juice, the sweetest strawberries and digestives, packed all our camera gear and a coleman lamp, and hiked to the caves as training for the west coast trail. even though there was still some sweating and hard breathing, it was fabulous. and i am happy to report that i hiked faster than a cute hello kitty backpack, flip flop, and pompom pigtails couple along the trail.
another happy happy anniversary. how will we outdo ourselves next year...
