18 Years: Remembering Our Honeymoon

My beautiful bride and I were wed on May 18, 1996. It is hard to fathom this reality, but we have been married for 18 years this day. It has been a journey filled with many stories, one of which I would like to share, a story from the very beginning.

Aubrey and I honeymooned in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It really is a beautiful area and we both loved the mountains. We still sometimes reminisce about the bed and breakfast we stayed at. It sat on the side of a mountain and had floor to ceiling windows with which to enjoy the views.

What better way to immerse ourselves into this beautiful, mountainous wonderland than to take a guided mountain tour… on horseback? Sounded like a good idea. So we found a place that offered this experience and arrived with much anticipation. The tour group was small and intimate, perfect! It was just the two of us and our guide. How romantic.

Jonathan Braided

They are a Jamaican couple and at some point during the night Aubrey brought up to them that I had mentioned wanting to “corn row” my hair. The lady kindly obliged and let me know she’d be glad to braid my hair for me. It took about an hour and the reactions from my family were somewhat mixed. My wife said it looked freaky,… Read More »Jonathan Braided

May I Take Your Order?

I stumbled across this blog post that had me laughing and in stitches. I seriously haven’t read anything this funny in a while. Apprently some guy was overseas and went out to eat at a nice restaurant. His wife informed him that the menu was in English as well. The mangled English translation was so good that the guy bought the menu from the restaurant and then posted pieces of it on his blog with commentary. Absolutely hilarious! WARNING: There… Read More »May I Take Your Order?
