Happy Anniversary!


2012 - the dress still fits!
1995 was a big year for Andrew & I. We spent July & August in Pakistan and just a few days after summiting Broad Peak (12th highest mountain in the world, first Canadians to summit) and having an epic descent, we celebrated my birthday at base camp. Chocolate cake cooked over a camp stove, cards, balloons, and Andrew asking me to marry him. A most excellent day!

Three months later (December 9 -- an even more excellent day) we got married at my dad's place with a huge crowd of 10 people in attendance.

Signed and sealed!
We've had an incredible 17 years and are looking forward to many, many more! I couldn't have asked for a better climbing partner, adventure partner and life partner. Even if, on occasion, he still claims the lack of oxygen at altitude was affecting his thinking when he proposed!  :-)

  1. 1995 seems so recent - gosh it's been 17 years! Good to see you both looking so happy after all that time! Hope you catch my parents who just had their 70ieth!
