If you’ve read Sheepish, you know that Melissa and I flew to San Francisco in the fall of 2008 and legally married. This Saturday will be our 3rd anniversary…. and close to the 28th anniversary of our first date. Holy smokes.
With Melissa’s permission (I’ve shared so much of our lives that I decided I needed to run this blog post past her), here are a few photos from that day, September 17, 2008, the day the farmers got married… Neither of us wanted a traditional wedding, so we created our own day, and we loved it.
San Francisco City Hall
This is the grand staircase. Weddings take place in the small rotunda at the top of the stairs.

Legal at last. 🙂
Ending the day at the Pacific Ocean…
Twenty-eight years. It’s hard to imagine that much time has passed, until I found this photo our nephew Jason gave us. He’d had it on his phone. We have no idea who took it, since Jason wasn’t even alive yet. Here we are, total babes in our late 20s…
We had no idea then, of course, that we’d end up living on a farm, raising sheep, and writing about it. We’re never going to be rich, but we chose a path rich in experiences, animal connections, and nature.
Thanks for sharing my meandering down Memory Lane.
