5 Years Down...Lots More to Go!

Happy Anniversary to us! This week five years ago we were married at the Jefferson Street Mansion, in Benicia, California. The Canadian family came down on the'love bus' and joined the wild American family for the wedding of the year! The last five years have gone by in the blink of an eye. In five years we have graduated from university, lived in another country, moved four times, adopted Bella the Cat, opened a store and mostly have had a lot of fun. We were only 21 & 22 when we tied the knot but it is still the best decision that we have ever made!

In celebration of our first five years of bliss we decided to explore Vancouver Island- Parksville specifically. We played at the beach, met some lovely goats in Coombs & chilled out at the Grotto Spa. It was a blast! We definitely would like to return to Parksville later this summer to hang out at the beach, camping anyone? The following are a couple of pics from the past weekend.

The Goats on the Roof at the Old Market in Coombs


The amazing beach at the Tigh-Na-Mara Resort. The tide goes out really far every day & leaves warm pools of water.
