Anniversary Poem for my Wife (non-haiku)

Another year has gone by,
By far the best of my life.
I married the woman of my dreams,
I treasure her more than anything.
We have a baby on the way,
I cannot wait for that amazing day.
Each year is better than the last,
Each year goes faster than fast.
Each year my love for you grows,
Without you, where would I be? Nobody knows.
I thank God for giving me you,
I thank God for Myles too!
Thank you for loving me,
When I think of you, I cannot breathe.
Sweetie, it is one year that we have been wed,
I cannot wait for what lies ahead.

All my love,
Aaron Getchius

Haiku Poetry

I love my wife a lot. Our anniversary is coming up on Sunday, July 28th, and I have no idea what to get her, so I wrote some haiku's for her.

I love you so much,
We have been wedded one year,

How much love is there?
It is endless for you dear,

Married for a year,
Many more to come for years

We got a dog a while ago, and her name is Lucy. Emily has given her the middle name of "Orange Juice", so I also wrote a haiku for her.


How cute is our pup?
She is the best dog ever,
Orange Juice Getchius.

The Struggle of Being "Healthy"

So we all want to be healthy, right? What is healthy, and what does it mean? To different people it means different things. To me, it means being able to function on a daily basis without getting the feeling like I am going to die.

I feel like everywhere you turn,  you end up finding out that what you are doing is wrong. Things that you think are good for you, and are made to sound like they are good for you, end up either being bad for you, or they are produced in a way where you don't want to consume them after learning about the process to make whatever it is. Check out this article.

I'm very excited for the farmers market to open up this summer in Appleton. I want to eat food that was grown in the area, and hasn't been transported from California for me to eat. I want to support my local farmers more than I have been through the winter. I told my wife that I want to start shopping at the Free Market (a little store here that sells organic, and local food) on a regular basis to support local businesses more.
