It was a glorious Temple ceremony followed by an interesting celebration breakfast. Then the fun of rescuing our little car from those making sure everyone knew we were newlyweds. Finally, off I went with the love of my life. “I love my wife!”
As best buddies, a bit naïve of the future, we arrived at Moon Lake in the high Uinta Mountains. A perfect remote location full of wildlife, clear night skies stuffed with stars, and awe-inspiring mountain experiences. A textbook environment for entering the wild journey of life together.
Interestingly, here we sit 46 years later to the day and Margrit is still the love of my life.
A bit muddy, we had just slugged through 20 miles of rough sometimes washed-out roads in our hand built tiny house van. Despite a flash flood warning, we wanted to investigate the wonders of the isolated Chaco Culture World Heritage Site.
I guess this pretty much sums up our life; challenging real life and off beaten tracks, mostly loving to be together or at least being tolerant when needed.
Still a bit naïve, we continue to stumble happily along, amazed at each step of this gift called life.
Sure there have been hard times like job loss and teenagers, heart breaking times of family struggles and death, and unexpected pivots facing new adventures in the Philippines, Africa and the USA.
Overall, the vast experiences of life have molded us as one. Watching each other’s backs, we fight the fight together finding love and adventure along the way
Like happily trudging out of here tomorrow after the expected desert monsoon. Whatever we find, it will be an adventure and all part of the experience.
Haaaaaappy Anniversary Margrit!
Russ Harris loves all things technical and making the world a better place, especially for Margrit.
