While my wife Andrea is finishing up her last semester at Otterbein University in Ohio, we sometimes have to spend weeks apart from each other. It’s hard at times, especially because we just got married this summer and I love spending as much time as possible with her. It’s especially hard today because it’s her birthday.
She’ll be home in two weeks for the holidays, and I know it’s going to be an amazing time as we spend our first Christmas together as a married couple. But until then, it’ll be frequent texts, phone calls, Skype dates, and our new-found back-and-forth fun playing Words with Friends on our smartphones.
When I’m not lugging around all of my heavy camera gear, I’ll often take snapshots with my phone — and the images below are some of my favorites of the both of us from this year. And while I can’t be with her in person today, I’m sending her all of my love and birthday wishes from over here in Oregon.
Happy Birthday, Andrea! I love you!
