sea glass and anniversaries

Apr 10, 2007 | Life in Progress

have i mentioned my latest addiction of searching for sea glass? all of these were found today while john and i strolled along San Fran’s Baker Beach. mostly green, but a few blue, clear, and amber mixed in, too. they are stunning to me, all gathered and sparkly. it is such a relaxing pastime, the sounds of the birds and the ocean in the background, bella ahead of us chasing her sticks, and the two of us searching together, side by side for little beauties of the ocean.

today, our relationship is 8 years young. we celebrated this morning with our walk on the beach, a slow driving tour through golden gate park, morning tea & coffee, chocolate donuts, and long winded conversations while we reminisced about our beginning 8 years ago. we were just 23 and he was 24, such babies! 3 months after our first date, we left florida and moved to portland (a move that i had already been planning). i’m surprised our parents didn’t have joint heart attacks! but it was a great match, and still is. like the sea glass above, we’ve been on a adventure these past 8 years, tumbling together through the ebbs and flows of life, making us softer, more beautiful in time.

Sending much love,

    I think this is a wonderful love story. The beach glass is so beautiful. My son has met someone who he has now known for 3 months, and as a parent you can tell when your child has met the perfect match. It sounds like your parents felt this same way.

    You are a beautiful couple!! Happy first date anniversary!

    Congratulations on your relationship milestone.
    I spend a bit of time each most weekends on the beach searching for sea glass. It is truly a magical creation.
    I am really enjoying your blog.

    Thank you Kelly Rae for your wonderful email.

    Happy Anniversary!!

    My hubs and I have also been together for 8 years and we too had a doggie named Bella. Funny isn’t it how people from the other side of the world have such similarities.

    May you bask in the sweetness of your anniversary.

    Hi Kelly,
    That is so beautiful, about you and your husband, and the image of the tumbled beach glass. It is wonderful thing to have a good marriage, Tom and I have been together for over 30 years, and married for almost 28. The beach glass metaphor is very apt.

    blessings on you both!
