The Joy Challenge: Day 13 – A Walk Down Memory Lane

I’m deliberately finding joy for forty days. To start from day one click here.

Last night Mark and I went to a nearby town for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant we chose is close to where we attended college, met, and dated. So we visited some of our favorite spots again…

(subscribers, if you can’t see the photos click here.)

Mark and Holley U of A Campus

This is the spot where I fell in love with Mark. It was a chilly fall evening, he opened his coat and let me wrap my arms around him to stay warm, and I remember feeling, “I’m home.”

Mark on Old Main Steps

On these steps we had one of our first serious conversations about our future together.

Holley and ZTA House

And this is the sorority house where I lived for three years. Mark picked me up for many dates at this front door!

Mark's Name in the Sidewalk

Holley's Name in the Sidewalk

At our college they put your name in the sidewalk when you graduate. We married the summer afterward.

This little walk down memory lane brought joy…and excitement about what’s down the road for us.

We’re traveling soon–I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend! 

Before I go, here’s another giveaway…
