A kind man probably in his early 70s was taking photos as we enjoyed sunset over the Grand Canyon. I was sitting on a rock with my notebook, we began chatting, and he asked if he could take my picture. I said sure, and after he captured the moment, he said “It’s nice, you just enjoying the world.” That’s what we did for a week, to celebrate marriage and God’s creation gifts.
If any of you follow me on Instagram then you know J and I were in New York this weekend! We were celebrating one year of marriage, and it was super great.
We ate a variety of delicious food, from New York pizza to authentic Chinese to burgers in Brooklyn. We walked many a mile, adventuring up and down the streets of Manhattan. We saw all the sites we wanted to, including the 9/11 Museum, Empire State Building, Times Square, the Brooklyn Tabernacle for church Sunday morning, Central Park, the Met, Wicked on Broadway (which was amazing), and so much more. We shopped a little, we explored a lot, and mainly enjoyed each others company. I’m pretty sure I could do anything with John and it have potential to be fun. For that, our true friendship, I’m thankful.
It wasn’t what you’d probably call a vacation, but it was an adventure for us to do together, and for me to see many of the sites that I’ve had on my list. We came home weary from walking and being herded through crowds, but happy and content with our memorable experience.
