Anniversary.


Today is my wedding anniversary. Six years ago my wife and I said our vows in front of friends and family at Phillips Emporium, a local cultural hot spot and coffee house, where we went to a poetry reading on our first date four years prior. In the last six years we have buried relatives, watched friends get married and divorced, and started a family. We have had some proud moments and some not so proud moments, but through it all we have been together and for that I am grateful. It amazes me, though, that my wife has been putting up with me for an entire decade. It could be also said that I have been putting up with her for the same amount of time, but anybody who knows us could tell you that I am the bigger pain in the ass to her than she could ever be to me. I know that I have become the man I am because of her love and guidance and that without her support I couldn't have gotten through grad school. She is not only my wife, she is my best friend. She is the person I miss, and argue with, the most. And I wouldn't have it any other way. So, here is to many more decades to come!
