Some of you know that this is Birthday/Anniversary month here in our home. Meaning we are celebrating Meredith's birthday (though one never reveals the age of a woman) and we are celebrating five years for Marriage. Its hard to believe that five years has gone by so fast. Well not quite five years because its not officially 5 until the 19th. When you look at the supposed gift giving protocol for 5 years you don't really get excited though. I believe its wood, BLAH! I thought for awhile I was going to have a good friend of ours over at Onyx Feather make Meredith a custom piece of jewelry. The more I thought about it the more I realized vintage jewelry really isn't my wife's thing.
I also realized that there isn't much made of wood that I can afford right now or that Meredith wants. So what do I get her? Well thats where the second number in the Blog title comes into play. I have decided that for Meredith I am promising to train and run a half-marathon. This is a big goal for me as I have never run more than 4 miles at a single time in my life. We haven't chosen one yet but I am considering three. The St. Louis Rock'n Roll, The Disney Half, and the St. Petersburg, FL Rock'n Roll. Wish me luck thats our news for now.
