17 years and counting...
So 17 years ago today, I said "I do" to the man. He was nice enough to say it back. It was frigid and windy and we drove to the church from our apartment in his Hyundai. It was a very low key wedding in case you were wondering. I wore a burgundy velvet and satin "gown" (it was really just a long dress) and lace up leather granny sort of boots (very Steampunk, I now realize). He wore a suit and a porn mustache!! (that he later shaved. I wanted him to shave it before but of course he waited until 2 weeks after the wedding). I could not drink at the wedding because we'd discovered two weeks prior that I was going to have our first child. Since the bar we met at 'donated' a keg to our festivities, the man and the family diligently made sure to finish it off without me ;)
As for meeting...18 years ago today, he said hi to me. I was nice enough to say it back ;) We were pretty much inseparable after that moment.
I know you're reading this, "man". So I'll say it right to you. I love you. And like I said last night during our super interesting dinner out, we've done pretty good for ourselves. Two great kids, a great life. Not always easy but where's the fun in that, right? I think it's the harder times that made us as strong as we are.
Anyway, people, enough slobbering and eye-wiping. Picture was chosen because it makes me happy. Apparently it was taken in 2008 and they were married 12 years then. Which means they are pretty much in line with us. Which is neat.
Have a stunning Sunday, everyone. I will.
