One of the things that makes our marriage strong is our common interests. In the summer, we enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing, and boating. We visit a national park every year (recent trips include backpacking in Banff, canoeing in Boundary Waters, and mountain biking near Arches in Moab.) When the snow arrives, you’ll find us down-hill skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating. We love to travel to new places, experiencing new sights and meeting new people. We also enjoy our down-time, either watching movies while snuggling on the couch, playing Scrabble, or working together on home improvement projects.
