And Lo on This Day Their 15th Wedding Anniversary Came to Pass

Song Lyric of the Day:

Tell me one more time / What is this thing called love / I’m not quite sure / As to what is going down / But I’m feelin’ hunky dory / ‘Bout this thing that I found

Heavy D & the Boyz / “Now That We Found Love

Fifteen years ago today, on an unusually cold and snowy April day in Knoxville, Rich and I tied the knot. I could write something sappy, deep, and meaningful, but I’ve already taken care of that in years past.

This year, I will simply thank Rich for being my best friend through thick and thin, for being with me through all the ups and downs, the highs and the lows, and for being the best dad possible to our own little Curly Sue. I love you, honey!

Mystery Mine ... of Marriage!

This is what you look like when you wake up one day and realize you’ve been married for 15 years.

To My Best Friend on Our 8th Anniversary

Song Lyric of the Day:

But something happened / For the very first time with you / My heart melts into the ground / Found something true

Leona Lewis / “Bleeding Love

Dear Rich,

I didn’t get you a card for our anniversary today. It just didn’t seem that critical, buying that beautifully adorned card filled with platitudes I wish I’d written, mostly just because they rhyme. Besides, I’m pretty sure you know how much you mean to me. I’m truly happy (and proud) that we’ve made it this far, particularly in light of where we were exactly four years ago at this time, marking the day, separately, while planning the end of our marriage. But we managed to fight back (and sometimes just plain fight) our way to becoming stronger and closer than ever before.

You’ve been my best friend for 11 years now and have been by my side throughout some of the most amazing, fun, awful, unusual, heartbreaking, enlightening, adventurous, heartwarming things I’ve experienced. And for that, I’m eternally grateful, because there’s no one else I would have wanted to share all those things with, no one else who could’ve said just the right thing at the right time, or not said anything at all when I needed it most. And there’s certainly no one with whom I’d rather anticipate and experience all the things the future holds than you.

I may not have gotten you a card, but I’ve given you my heart.
