Right now is my twenty-fifth wedding ceremony anniversary, and that all the time will get a lady asking the Massive Questions.

Questions like, “What, no cake?”

And, “how do you spell ‘anniversary,’ anyway?”

And, “Does this appear suspicious to you?”

(“It is. Wanting. At me.”)

After spending one half of my married life penning this weblog – which, WOW, amirite? – I’ve seen sufficient anniversary truffles to know many have worthwhile life classes to show.

For instance, this one reminds us that the primary few years of marriage are a studying expertise.

A 4 12 months “anniversity,” if you’ll.

And this one encourages us to by no means surrender within the face of adversity, poor planning, or earthquakes:

Its all the time the thought that counts. ALWAYS.

And here is a worthwhile reminder that, after 24 years, even probably the most devoted couple would possibly want a little bit more room:

Love is available in all shapes, sizes, and mixtures, so by no means decide.

Some people would have given up after, like, TEN weddings – however not these two loopy youngsters!

And at last, anniversaries aren’t simply concerning the massive, life-changing moments; they’re about celebrating all of the on a regular basis stuff you get to share collectively. Issues like holding arms through the fireworks, or studying to one another on lengthy automobile rides … and even only a new pair of dentures:

Although for the report, Sweetie, I believe I am going to attract the road at sharing dentures.

Because of Sarah G., Jaime & Jen, Janet R., Mika R., Brad L., Brittany T., Anna F., Christine M., & Kristin R. for serving to us have fun. John and I are in Atlanta tomorrow for Dragon Con, btw, so I hope to see a few of you right here!
