We’re celebrating our wedding anniversary this week! We’ve been married for 5 years, and together for 14 – ah, how quickly the time goes by!

This is the only year in the history of our relationship where this number will mean something to a rock climber (it’s the grade point we hope to climb at some point!) If you’re not a rock climber, this number just means we’ve been together for a bit of time 🙂

To celebrate, we’re taking a few days off for a bit of Island life. We’re also celebrating Jonty’s road to recovery after fracturing his left kneecap and partially tearing his patellar tendon!

After 7 1/2 weeks post-accident, Jonty was finally able to move his leg, narrowly avoiding surgery in a you-just-gotta-make-it-work do-or-die moment.

After 8 weeks, he took his first tentative step without his knee brace.

After 9 weeks, he’s now able to walk (in short bursts) without his crutches!

This is very exciting progress after more than 2 months of being immobile!

Happy Anniversary to my best friend and most favourite person! Love you to the moon and back 🙂
