On Anniversaries…

Today marks my second anniversary to one very special human being.

To Carter: I love you more today than yesterday and, if we’re being honest, I loved you more yesterday than the day before. Though, that could be because you were being especially difficult on Saturday. (I kid, I kid.) We were at a wedding recently (congrats Maureen and TJ!). In her vows, the bride said, “If I could give you one gift, it would be the ability to see yourself the way I see you.” I know you remember this, Carter, because that’s the part of the wedding where I burst into tears, which always makes you very uncomfortable. I cried because that’s exactly what I wish for you. We don’t live in in a wizarding sort of world, alas, and so I’ll have to make do with what we have. If you could see yourself the way I see you, you would see how kind, compassionate, loving, funny, and wonderful you are. You would see a man who people admire for his ethics and his compass. You would see a man who is brave in the way that counts. (You know, that Mufasa sort of way. We’ve talked about this dozens of times.) Above all, I think, you would see one of the most amazing human beings that I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. You’re tops, Carter, and I look forward to 6o anniversaries and beyond.  I couldn’t have picked a better partner.

To our family and friends: Thanks for loving us the way you do. Thanks for your support, kindness, and friendship. We love you very much.

To my friends who took bets that I would be pregnant by our second anniversary: Suck it. You all owe me $20.

And now, because I clearly haven’t posted enough wedding photos up here, I’m going to post some more.


I know the best ladies around. Be jealous.





Post-bride. This one always makes me smile. Glad that dress knocked you socks off, babe. 🙂







Maid of Honor/Best Man “Let’s do these toasts!” high five, whilst I look on judgmentally. Proof: I have resting bitch face. EVEN AT MY WEDDING, I have resting bitch face.



These faces kill me. Every time.





We had some professional Wobbledancers on our hands. I refuse to say Wobblers.



It’s easy to be married to you, Carter. And with friends like those ^, I’d say we’re pretty lucky. Happy Anniversary, Bird.


  1. Happy anniversary, sweet girl! A good marriage is a beautiful thing. Husband and I celebrate our 21st in a few weeks! xxx
