It’s my 20th anniversary. It doesn’t feel like we’re old enough for 20 years of marriage, but the calendar says it’s true, so we’ll go with it. Living with Corey for the last 2 decades has been a wild and crazy adventure. I love him lots. To paraphrase Jerry Maguire “he completes me.”  (Just Kidding. He’s awesome, but he’s not Jesus.)

Four years after sending a query to Creation Illustrated hoping to write about my first backpacking trip, I received an invitation to write the story. Four. Years. (I’ve had to wait quite a while for responses to queries in the past, but four years is crazytown. ) It was worth the wait, however, because that query turned into an 8-page spread in the magazine. I love writing for online publications, but there is something extra sweet about pulling a magazine out of the mailbox and finding your byline in print. The fact that it was backgrounded by a giant photo…
