Seven Years

Monday was spent celebrating.



Happy Anniversary!

Like Lady Spud and me, you and Justin seem to literally see eye to eye. Not that that's a bad thing.

Was this date chosen in order to get the marriage license dated before the end of the year, or was it one of those "everybody's on vacation and available"?

Yes, Marc, we are almost exactly the same height. Fortunately, I don't like wearing heels much anyway.

That date was chosen because we wanted to get married then. Not for any tax reasons or to make things particularly easy on anyone. In fact, I think most people would have found getting to our wedding easier at just about any other time of year.

Happy Anniversary from me as well, Jordana. You and Justin make a beautiful couple.

Happy anniversary, and many more!

Happy Anniversary from me too, and welcome back - you've been awfully quiet for a while.

Now that I think about it, it seems like the tax code would favor you skipping until next year, but you'd have to check with a CPA about that.

You may want to check out Citizen Frank - he's got you by two years. He has a great post up.

Happy Anniversary!

What a pretty dress. I remember being in Ohio just before, as your mom was buying copious amounts of Christmas lights for it... though it may have been the year before... who knows... those years with your brother are like a blur now!

You also had a much more civilized wedding than I did. Schatz and I ended up getting married by a bilateral amputee Buddhist in a friend’s back yard... (when a visa is expiring and there is a 3 and a half month courtship and a week long engagement, there is very little else one can do - glad I didn't take it more cautiously, best choice I ever made!). I still had fun, but part of me wishes I had done the real "ceremony"!

Happy anniversary Jordana! (Oh, and Justin too, of course.) Mrs. A and I found the going a little easier after the seven year mark.

Don't get me wrong, it's still hard work staying "in love", just not quite as hard.

The next seven will be here before you know it!

How beautiful you look! Congratulations and may there be at least seven times seven more to come!

Congrats! You're less than a year up on us, but 2 kidlets. I guess we're just slowpokes!

And we had to arrange our wedding around the UNC football schedule- talk about mixing sacred and profane!

Happy, happy!

OOPS posted in the wrong spot. Lets try this again...

Can we play the "Make up a Funny Caption game"?

Like what is this guy thinking?

Hummm, A child every 2.3 years, so she can make me 3 kids in 7 years, 6 kids in 14 years, 9 kids in 21 years!!!!

(Happy 7th)
