Ten years

Forgive the terrible scan, we loved our wedding photos by Nicki Pardo and Tom Kates.

It’s a bright and sunny day in September today, and it isn’t too hard to envision what I was doing exactly ten years ago, nearly to the minute.

I just adore this one. He was talking to me a little while before the wedding! And no, that isn’t a circa 2000 cell phone.

I was standing at the altar, with a church full of loved ones, marrying my husband. I’m looking at those pictures right now, and I can hardly believe what babies we were!

It was a variable weather day–it dawned hot and sunny but then it turned on us, temporarily. Just as we were about to leave for the church, it poured and poured. The rain only lasted for about 30 minutes, and then afterwards, the sun came out and we enjoyed a gorgeous riverside party.

Ten years later, I can see it our day was a perfect metaphor for marriage—for the 30 or so minutes of rain we’ve had in our ten years, we’ve had hours and hours of sunshine.

Thank you so much, B, for an amazing ten years. I will be so lucky to have a lifetime more of sunny and rainy days with you. I love you to the ends of the earth.
