(1) Always get married on a memorable date, even if it means you drag your family out for a Wednesday afternoon wedding. It means I, who chronically forget absolutely every birthday including my own, finally have a day I can remember.
(2) The weird thing about being married is you feel like you’ve been married forever, and yet it’s only been X years. And then you realize, man, it’s been X years since we got married, that was a long time ago! (currently for values of X = 2.)
(3) Being single was the best years of my life, but that was only because I hadn’t yet met the right partner. Life is awesome and amazing, and continues on now even better with the best man in the world by my side.
Also, my husband got me a pocket camera for our anniversary. Is that amazing or what? Incoming tree porn from my park as soon as it gets sunny! (or maybe even today, since I could show the mud I slog through on rainy days. I bought a new pair of sneakers ten days ago and they’re already brown with wonderful trail mud!)
The picture in this post is from that camera, and is of our two cats, Coyopa and Kakulha, reclining in the warmth of the sun lamp I have by my desk.
