Our 30th Anniversary

Our 30th Anniversary

Burnsland
These two kids got married 30 years ago today! Happy anniversary to my beautiful wife Laura. Thirty years into the future seems like a long way off when you are just starting out. But it does not seem like that long ago when you look at it from this direction. We have had lots of fun adventures, and of course a few difficult times to work through together, too. But the good times have far, far outweighed the bad times.

As our Hawaiʻi trip in June 2023 gets underway, we fly to Honolulu and arrive at Aulani. And if you have not done so already, you might want to read the introduction first. Wednesday, June 14, 2023 Our first flight was scheduled to leave Memphis at 8:30 AM. That meant getting to the airport at 6:30 AM. Because of the early hour, Laura and I spent the night at the Riedels’ house.

We went on a Hawaiʻi trip in June 2023 with the Riedels to celebrate 30th anniversaries! Read all about our trip! But before we go, here is some background information… An Introduction Thirty years ago, Laura and I got married. Yes, we were just kids at the time, thanks for asking! In that same year, our best friends Brant and Karen Riedel also got married. Some people may not think that a 30th wedding anniversary is as big as a 25th or a 50th, but who says that you can’t celebrate it in a grand way if you want to?
