5 years

September 3, 2005

We were married at an old movie theatre. Apparently the first wedding ceremony in their history. It was beautiful.

Lots of comfy seating for everyone!

Photos done at a local historic site.

Happy Anniversary, sweetheart. Wow. Married 5 years, together for nearly 4 before that. 2 wonderful boys. 1 house.  Looking forward to many, many more! (Years, that is.)

We met about 11 years ago. I was dating someone else, but felt a strong attraction to you. Then you up and moved to England! I was very excited when you came back. A group of us went to see Being John Malkovitch at (the above mentioned) theatre. Then there was the night we went sliding, laughing like a bunch of kids.

Then came the time my then boyfriend decided to move to another city to "better our relationship". Since things were already rocky, I'm not sure how he thought it would better anything. So you kept me company. We watched movies. I fed you my horrific soup with the massive flavour pockets. And you ate every bite and even asked for seconds.

When it finally came time to break it off with the MIA boyfriend, a friend called you and said you needed to join us at a local bar, asap. And we had our first kiss. I believe the first movie we rented as a couple was American Pyscho. Yeah, let's not hold that against us!

It took you 3 stinkin' years and home-ownership, but you finally proposed. The same night I told you about plotting with your mother to plan the wedding and invite you to it.

I think my fondest memory of our wedding aftermath was early the next week, when we were getting ready for bed and I was taking off my support hose and you were removing your dentures. What a pair. Old and crotchety before our time!

You've given me 2 beautiful boys. And though I'd like to try for a girl, I understand our chances of getting twin boys is just too high and scary. So I respect your decision to keep our family the way it is.

I love you. You are truly my better half!
