For week 23 of my 52 years celebration, let’s jump ahead to 1994, when I visited the US to meet Jenn in person, having met online the previous year. Here we are dressed up, the first picture I have of us together. #ThrowbackThursday #52years

David and Jenn

We’ll be heading home today. Here are some pictures from yesterday on our camping vacation, including a stroll down to the harbor beach, lunch, and a cat visitor. (We also went for a couple hours drive down the coast, and Chinese takeout for dinner; no pics of those.)

A very happy birthday to my delightful wife @jidabug! 🎂🎈🎁❤️🎉😘 (This is a picture from around this time last year, a trip to Hood River, the last vacation of the Before Times.)

Jenn

Today is a notable milestone for me: I have now been married for exactly half of my life. 9445 days between my birth and wedding date; 9445 days between our wedding date and today. (My birthday is in May, our anniversary in April, and now it’s February… funny how time works.)

A bunch of pictures from a “Bridge Stride” event that Jenn participated in (and I took pictures of) in 2005, where people got to walk and ride over a couple of Portland’s bridges. #ThrowbackThursday
