I Married Adventure

Happy Monday,  everyone! How was the weekend? We soaked up the sun with family and friends and got a head start on celebrating Mr. H's Birthday...

He's traveled to 50 countries on six continents, fought forest fires, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, trekked in Nepal, plays a mean game of Scrabble (and sometimes even lets me win). Since we met, we've snorkeled in Belize, ridden elephants through the Okavango Delta in Botswana, climbed the red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, Namibia, and kayaked around the Island of Mljet off the coast of Croatia...and he's spent hours following me through the Paris flea markets because he's a good sport. 

I can't imagine a better person to adventure through life with.

Happy Birthday, Mr. H! Can't wait to climb many more mountains with you.


  1. Aww Happy Birthday Mr.H! Sounds like a wonderful life so far!


  2. Sounds like my kind of partner! Wishing Mr. H a very happy birthday and many more adventures to come for you both.

  3. What a great tribute! I can't wait to meet him and hear some stories. :)

  4. Happy Birthday to Mr H!!!! He sounds like an amazing adventurer....wishing both of you many more adventures in your life together!

    xoxo Elizabeth

  5. Happy, happy Birthday Mr. H!! Here is to an exciting year ahead...Salut!

    Jeanne, I had to laugh though--it seems as though we have similar tastes in men!
    PS. Is that Cathy the elephant at Abu Camp? I have a photo with her on my 35th bday--my best ever. :)

  6. Heather, that IS Cathy the elephant at Abu! We went for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! Heaven. Thanks for the happy birthday wishes- here's to the adventurers!!!

    loving the photos and commentary and wondering if the universe is telling me i MUST splurge on that copy of Osa's book! weird!

  8. Michele, I think that's exactly what the Universe is telling you. Splurge away! I've been hoping to get my hands on the companion book, Four Years in Paradise...
    Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  9. Joyeux anniversaire to Monsieur H. He sounds like a very special man, as demonstrated in that third photo of him :-) A wonderful tribute, and one I know he will appreciate fully. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
