10 days ago Darren and I marked our 22nd anniversary... a sentimental milestone because this one represents the moment in our timeline that we have been married as long as we have not. We were scheduled to getaway to the Dominican Rebublic with his brother, but then the tragic earthquake happened in Haiti and we needed to switch up destinations in order to not be in the way of relief efforts. We chose Grand Cayman. Nice weather, nice people, nice diving. I am oh so spoiled.

Land Down Under: He has been swimming, surfing, boogie-boarding, skateboarding, sailing, city-exploring, ferry-riding, schooling, friend visiting and many more. So far, loves it.

What a wonderful second choice! We have never been to Cayman, but have friends who LOVE it. It looks like a perfect surprise destination to mark being together as long as you "had not." How I look forward to that "as long as" anniversary myself. (We will be quite old by then, however.) Congratulations to you both! Many happy returns of the day.

Hey De,
That picture of you with the stingrays brings a weird vision of Steve Irwin to me. Were you not freaked out? Looks like an awesome time. Happy Anniversary - if you were here I would offer a toast with a malibu rum.

Your trip looks so so fun! I love that pic of the wave hitting you. It's a fun expression. Congrats on your anniversary.

Wow. What a fun trip. Happy Anniversary! That's the perfect way to celebrate.
Oh- Niah LOVES the book you gave her for Christmas. She doodles in it for hours at a time.
