Love Marches On

It’s that time of year again. March. It was gorgeous outside on Friday, wasn’t it? Stop nodding! It wasn’t! It was just a trick, an illusion, a fetid carrot dangling on a twisted stick. You’ll see, we’ll be up to our noses in snow before you know it.

So what does one do during the month they like least? Get hitched! That’s right, battle the blahs and give yourself a good reason to escape from March once in a while. Last Wednesday, Jon and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary. I intended to post on Wednesday, but I ended up working late all week. I decided that since I’m always doing everything else late, why should a celebration of our love be any different?

Last year I posted a bunch of our wedding photos. This year, I figured I’d take a look at the post-marital festivities. No, not those. The other ones. Since we pretty much had a do-it-yourself wedding, we had a lot of preparation and cleaning up to do. I had a lot of help and couldn’t have done it without everyone who gave us a hand. But still, by the end of the day, we were exhausted. Turns out, committing to an eternity together really takes a lot out of you.

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from the whole day. They make me smile because I just remember what a great day we’d had and how tired we were, and how excited we were to go on our honeymoon cruise the next day. It was such a good tired. They also make me happy because they’re so silly.

A few people came back to the house so we could hang out, chat, and open our gifts. We were getting really punchy.

Observe:


Clearly, Jon loves this radio. I do, too. We use it almost every day. I loved it when I opened it, so I’m not sure what the face is all about. Oh yeah, I was reeeeally tired.

It’s all class with us. This is actually the picture that I put in the little silver frame on the cover of our photo album.


And here we are on our honeymoon, hanging out with the luxurious cruise ship casino décor.




And lastly, here is one of my favorite portraits of us. So warm and sunny, little minnows swimming below . . . ~sigh~ It’s what March should be.


Happy Anniversary, Jon! I love you, baby!!

Happy Anniversary!

March is a good month to meld--we hit 10 years on St. Pat's Day.

According to the fabulous card I found a few years ago, the 3rd anniversary is the Caulking anniversary. We, of course, at our tenth, are approaching the ever-so delightful Naugahyde anniversary.

Perhaps I'll post the list so that everyone will know the appropriate gifts...

Anyhow, congrats!

That cracked me up because I so relate! My least-favorite month is February, so when did my hubby and I get married? Yep, February.

I love the photos!

I think photos like those are probably truer reflections of marital bliss than the airy doe-eyed ones from the wedding ceremony. May you have many more happy years together picking the noses of large pirate statues.

Happy Anniversary! I just clicked back and looked at your wedding pictures -- that looks like it was the most fun wedding ever. How great! I especially LOVE the cake.

Happy Anniversary! I figure I'd post this reply late, ya know, to fit with the theme.

No magazine ever advertises the absolute exaustion that occures on the wedding day. Not just for the couple, but all the support staff/friends. If they knew, I swear more people would elope.

Many happy years to come

Many, many more.

The two of you are unbelieveably cute together, and so much more fun than Brad and Angelina.
