Bravo! Yes, 20 years of marriage is good, but I’m talking about how you’ve delayed your Leadville story YET ANOTHER DAY with a nearly unassailable post. (I say “nearly” because here I am assailing.) You are indeed wily.
I loved the pic. The funny thing to me is that as happy as you look in the pic it is so much better as you grow older together as you two have. I have a similar pic of my wife and I back 17 years ago. We looked real happy. And yet I didn’t know near as much about happiness back then as I do know with her.
After reading your blog for some time I have to say that this post is by far the MOST touching to me thus far…as they say “A picture is worth a thousand words” My best to both of you on such a special day!
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary. What great role models you are for your children. The devotion, edification, and complete love for one another while keeping a sense of humor is something they will carry with them forever.
Best wishes for many more years of celebration!
For a minute I was like, who’s that dude with Susan? Then I realized what I was looking at and I almost cried a little. It’s such a beautiful romantic picture. My hubby and I celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary next month, and the 20th anniversary of our first date in December. Congratulations.
Wonderful picture…thanks for sharing things like that with us. You two have really touched my family’s life and I’ve never even met you. Good people have that affect on the world. My wife and I are celebrating 14 years on the 25th…I mean 26th of august….crap now I’m in trouble……
Nice coincidence !! I also have 20 years of marriage and the love for bycicles and for my wife (ooops other way around :-) ) deepens every year. This year my fatty pink jersey came with me from Salamanca to Santiago (spain) on a fantastic seven day XC ride with my 16th year old boy. Once there we had a “Win Susan” poster to unravel and photograph in front of the cathedral.
Congratulations to both from Portugal
Congratulations from me and my wife also! Thanks for sharing your blog with us. We almost had the same day but ended up with today instead (Aug 14th) on which we’re now celebrating our 7th! Here’s to going as long again! :)
Congratulations! I’ve got a few more years before getting to the 20 yr mark, but I totally understand what you mean about how the time feels with the right woman. It’s been so comfortable, even in the tough times.
Thank you for sharing your life so candidly. You’ve made a difference in many lives through your generosity.
Someone mentioned earlier that in this photo you look like Robert Downey Jr.. That wasn’t my original thought…it was my second. My first thought was that she looks like Molly Ringwald. My third thought, naturally, was: were they ever in a movie together?
I still don’t know if they ever were. I do know it could never have been better than this.
Congrats to you and Susan on 20 years of marriage. As someone else above mentioned, I’d love to read stories of how you met. You are a great story teller. I’ve never been on a bike besides around the block with my kids and I love your blog.
