The Best Two Years

Monday was our two year anniversary. Basically we were super smart when we chose Sept. 5th for our wedding day - we will get a four day weekend every few years or so because it lands on Labor Day. This year we decided to take a day trip to explore parts of AZ neither of us have every been to. So we drove South. Hard to believe I have lived in AZ my whole life and have never been to Tuscon - I've just never had a reason or desire to go. Our destination was Bisbee. And Tuscon just happened to be on the way. I wasn't missing out on anything. Tuscon is just an uglier version of the valley. We also stopped at Tombstone on the way to Bisbee. It was exactly what we expected, but still pretty cool.

Bisbee was the real highlight of the trip, besides trying to discreetly nurse in odd locations including in the car in a Subway parking lot where I am 100% sure a strange man saw more than he bargained for...sorry for the peep show Mr.Stranger! Anyway Bisbee was a fun town to visit. It is a lot like Jerome, but it isn't a ghost town. It has a very unique atmosphere and its just fun to walk around. Highly recommend to anyone who hasn't been there.
Look at that handsome guy! Don't know how I got so lucky. I have him to thank for giving me the best two years of my life and hopefully many, many more.
Avery was a little peach the whole trip. We are so blessed to have this little girl make our good life that much better and meaningful.
