4 Years

Today is our 4-year anniversary.


Isaac and I often talk about how neither of us felt there were any big "surprises" when we got married, despite our VERY short courtship--our transition to married life was pleasant and smooth. But now that we've hit four years, I am pleasantly surprised about a few things:

1) We still love to hold hands, cuddle, smooch, and say "I love you"

2) Isaac is, if anything, handsomer than the day we got married

3) I still get excited when Isaac comes home at night

4) Isaac has never yet raised his voice at me

How did I get so blessed? I love you Isaac!

Anthropomorphism at the Hess Home

I'd like to introduce you to some of the lesser-known members of our family.





Horace (Isaac's)


Waldo (Camber's). He used to have pupils...






And Wilbur, Camber's deaf ear.

Turns out it's hard to take a picture of one's own ear.

And, to be helpful, the definition of anthropomorphism, in case you're too embarrassed to ask:

Anthropomorphism: Any attribution of human characteristics  to animals or non-living things, phenomena, material states and objects or abstract concepts. --Wikipedia
