Happy Anniversary!


It is our anniversary today, S. and I. Not of when we met or hooked up or started dating officially or even when we started blogging, but of our actual LEGAL marriage here in Massachusetts. I am still overwhelmed at the privilege this state of ours allows us, being just one of two in this whole big screwed-up country. It's nice to have company now though, I have to say (thanks, California!). It was a beautiful day weather-wise--not too hot, but sunny and bright and beautiful. Not like today, which is cloudy and overcast. Today we cleaned the stove, picked up our kitchen from our pie- and strawberry jam-making extravaganza (pics to come--they are very red!). Three years ago we smiled in white dresses and held flowers and felt content and happy with our small, close crowd of our family and best friends who came to watch us do something rather unique. Now we are waiting on pins and needles for something even more amazing to happen. We hope it will happen quite soon, but it would be nice to not have to share our anniversary with our baby's birthday!

So much love and happiness to share I can't quite say it, except that no one else I know would come pick 20 pounds of strawberries with me and help cook it into jam. Happy 3rd anniversary, lovie!

Happy Anniversary!

I think you meant to say you only know 3 people who would help you pick 20 pounds of strawberries ;)

No need to say it - you're welcome.

you're right--i can't forget stacey and pete, because really, if stacey hadn't brought back 2 more flats of strawberries we wouldn't have been in this mess to begin with! so let's just blame it on her along with my broken pitcher.
