Thankful

This past week of celebrating Gary and Missy's wedding was one of the best weeks of my life. I love them so much and seeing them so in love and with all of their friends around them was an incredible experience that I wish I could live every day.

One of the reasons it was such an incredible week is because Crystal Hutchinson has been devoting her life to it and I feel like the luckiest man alive because in a few weeks she's moving from Ohio and into my guest apt and is going to essentially be in charge of my life and so a lot of you will get to meet her and see for yourself how wonderful she is.

Last night we stayed up almost all night because nobody wanted to say goodbye and I only got one hour of sleep so when I got home today I crashed out and slept for 7 hours this afternoon. When I woke up I didn't know where I was. I was expecting to see Gary's staircase above my head but once I realized I was back home I became so grateful for my friends and for all the people who have brought meaning to my life.

I also wanted to thank all of you for the wonderful birthday wishes and gifts. I haven't opened the mail yet but I'm excited to go through it.

Below is a little highlight video that Elysium Productions put together and it's really fantastic so be sure to click and watch it. There's a fun shot of me jumping into the pool with Bob Davis' son on my shoulders! :)

WOW!!! It's so awesome how you make party for wedding in the US. Here in Germany it is more conservative and I like the way you celebrate your weddings. Mine was not even so beautifull like it looks at your film and your photos are great.

Thanks,

Markus :-)
