10-Year Vow Renewal of the Century


Michelle and I just celebrated our 11-year anniversary a few days ago. Though our blog is years behind schedule, the time is nigh to relive and share what was one of the best days of our lives.

A lot of people asked me why we’d have a 10 year vow renewal ceremony. Simply put, we celebrate job promotions, retirement, birthdays, graduations, new pants, etc. all of which can be great things, however, marriage can get overlooked (or given a bad rep) in this landscape of striving and achievement. So, beyond a wedding, celebrating marriage and reflecting, gathering and communicating love that is chosen and leaned into, is worthy of a party; worthy of taking inventory in ourselves and in our lives, all of the goodness and hardships and blessings that have happened in the past ten years because it’s easy to get distracted and easy to forget that the most valuable parts of our lives are often right in front of us.
