Most anyone who knows us will know that Renee loves to handstand in all sort of funny/crazy locations and I love to take pictures of her (check out the Instagram hashtag #reneehandstands to see many of them). It is so amazing that we can be exhausted climbing a peak or swimming a river somewhere and yet—always—at the idea of a handstand, Renee is ready to go.
And the Internet teaches you all sorts of things, and one it taught us this year is that June 24 is International Handstand Day. So Renee was determined to celebrate it, and I was a more than happy accomplice. It fell on a day that we were slated to ride all day helping my family move cattle from one summer pasture to the next. A long, hot, incredibly exhausting day. But we were determined to play along, despite the incredulous comments of my mom, especially, who said I should do the handstands (to hilariously terrible results, although one day I will learn to at least approximate a handstand). So on a day that we were moving about three or four hundred cattle across the high desert mountains we stopped again and again for Renee to do handstands. I am so filled with fortune to spend the days of my life with a life-partner-in-crime so full of life and the fun of it.
