Developing youth through juggling since 1994.
Arneberg Austria Adventure
This summer, Wendy & I went on a 2nd honeymoon to a picturesque location suitable for high adventure, cultural enrichment, and tranquil seclusion. Based in the small town of Altenmarkt im Pongau, Austria (an hour south of Salzburg), we enjoyed a full month of unplugging from cell phones, emails, and familiar faces & places in celebration of our marriage which is 15 years old and counting. As avid movie buffs, two of our favorite attractions were The Sound of Music tour and The Eagles Nest tour, the latter of which was featuted in the epic mini-series Band of Brothers as the real-life climax to the ETO in WWII.
Going on such an adventure, I tend to apologetically qualify the expense and length by saying We got a deal on our apartment rental (which we did); Weve never been away for more than a week just by ourselves; etc. Regarding expense, we offer heartfelt, genuine, and humble thanks to you, our JH families, since a good portion of the trip was directly funded by your gifts from the past two Juggle Jams. Regarding length, this trip was a tribute to our marriage which, like any other, is not perfect but which deserves priority and investment above all our other earthly relationships.
Its the very love that our marriage keeps developing that allows JH itself to exist and develop, for JH (and the hundreds of relationships fostered through it) would be undermined at best and destroyed at worst if the Arneberg marriage (and our corresponding complementary gifts) were weakened. Just as no man is an island, no marriage is an island. Wendy & I are so blessed to be able to grow in love together not merely for our own good, but for the good of the ministries to which God has called usthe chief of which is JUGHEADS Youth Juggling Co., LLC.
