Well, I'm sitting here in Siem Reap after a really cool day with you at Angkor Thom and wondering what great story I can share for your 30th Birthday, but I'm drawing a blank. I thought one of my favorite memories over the past years was the night we got engaged, I was terrified even though I knew that you would say yes, and you telling me that you did not want to get engaged in a public place which increased the terror. So, we were destined to get engaged on a carpet square.

Then there was our 2 year extravaganza in Peace Corps. All of the highs, lows, and inbetweens that we went through. And now we are having this amazing adventure on our way home, and I couldn't think of someone that I would rather share this experience with. I just want to wish you a very happy 30th birthday. You are my best friend and partner in all of our adventures and I pray that never changes (let's travel untill were 110). I love you and hope you felt very celebrated at our group dinner. You can thank Steve for aranging the location.

Love you Hugeness,
