Guess What We Did??!!
Mountain Man and I are celebrating 15 years of wedded gooey goodness today. It was really a poor date choice as we later realized, because every year it fell right in the middle of finals week (when we were in college) and now is the last week of school for our own kids.
Needless to say, sometimes we forget. Lucky for us, we don't really care, and we usually forget together so sometime in July we turn to one another and say, "Hey, we forgot our anniversary."
I know that this picture is atypical for a bride and groom, but what can I say? Pictures taken with my mouth closed look like I'm in a mug shot.
This picture is particularly close to my heart because it was the picture we slapped on the front of a postcard and sent to all of our friends and family after we got married. The back said, "GUESS WHAT WE DID??!!"
It was the best idea ever. We ran away, parents, siblings and best friends in tow and sealed the deal. Then we hopped a plane and traveled for a month...where Mountain Man contracted strep throat in France and then we came home.
There's a bunch of stories in there, which I may tell another time, but what I wanted to say (to one of the two people who are notified by email when I write a new blog post) is:
Happy Anniversary Mountain Man. You are the bread to my butter and the breath to my life.
I'm still glad I married you...
....and you know the rest.
