One year ago today, Luke and I walked down the sandy isle and in front of our family, hotel on-lookers, beach peddlers and another wedding party (long story), we said our vows. Luke is the behind the scenes guy of 'kylie parry studios' and I really couldn't do it without him. From loving and supporting me, to changing out kiln elements, to helping me at art shows, he always has my back, and I love that about him :)
We met at a summer camp. We were both trip leaders- we took groups of city-slickers out into the woods and taught them wilderness survival skills....you know...like how to make smores and raccoon proof your coolers. After a brief introduction, Luke and I paddled a 3-day canoe trip in 9 hours (learning the route we would take kids on later that summer). Not your typical "first date". Naturalist Luke says the moment I correctly identified a Basswood tree from our canoe, he knew I was the one :) Damn...I'm glad I paid attention in 7th grade.
