When I first met Taylor, I was intrigued. He was obviously attractive, athletic and intelligent, but there was something more. Being a relationally motivated person, I know how to keep conversations flowing. I am constantly asking questions to find out more about people. What I immediately noticed and was drawn to in Taylor, was that he came to the table asking a completely different set of questions. His eye saw things that mine didn’t. His ears heard sounds that I would have missed.
Lucky for me, after hanging around with each other for awhile, Taylor asked me if we could hang out forever. I have never regretted saying yes. He still intrigues me and comes to the table with a different set of questions than ones that I would think to ask. He is sharp and quick; witty and dry; tender and full of mercy. I am continually learning from him. He inspires and he motivates.
One of the gifts that he has given to me and to those around him is documentation. He captures life as it unfolds. He somehow fades into the background and captures beautiful moments exchanged between kindred hearts. An exchange and/or interaction that I experienced in real time, was captured from a different vantage point, from an alternate perspective. It adds a fullness and richness to the memory of the moment. I treasure that those experiences can be revisited and remembered in a more robust way.
These things that have been documented over time are treasures to me. I find joy in sharing the things that I love, so I am sharing these moments with you. I want everyone to know that I am married to an extremely amazing and talented man. I love you Taylor Carl Armerding. I always will.
Capturing footage of our 4th celebration has become a tradition. I'm hoping these continue for decades.
We stole away to the PNW for a getaway. I'm so glad that this day was documented. It is a day I wish I could do over and over again.
