Happy 5

5 years ago, Camille finally gave in to my persistent advances and agreed to marry me. Looking back, it’s hard to believe that it has only been 5 years. Camille was just about to go traveling across the globe, and I was working nights at Kinko’s and going to school full time. I talked Camille into rearranging her plans to include me in them, and she steered my ambition into a substantially more profitable future. I don’t think I would be anywhere near where I am now without her.

So many of our experiences together have strengthened our relationship and pushed us on to become more than we were. In the last five years we have been blessed with two beautiful girls, we’ve been out of the country twice, obtained licenses as paraglider pilots with all our own equipment, and checked a few other big items off our to do list. Camille is now training for her first triathlon and she is in as good of shape or better than when we met, this after delivering 2 babies within 15 month of each other. And I have become the CEO and majority shareholder of my own company, mostly due to Camille’s influence.

Here’s a quick slideshow of some of the fun we’ve had over the years.

Happy 5th anniversary Camille, I love you.

I remeber talking to Camille on the phone and she didn't want to admit she was getting married. i had to drag it out of her. I'm glad you didn't give up Foote. I am so glad she found someone who was willing to be persistent. You guys are a perfect match.

I'll tell you my secret. I set up my calendar on my computer to email me reminders 1 month before, then again 1 week before, then again 2 days before, each time with a task to accomplish. Doesn't leave much to my own memory.
