back when

So, 5 years ago tomorrow I got married.


It came as a shock to many, including myself. 

It was such a shock, in fact, that family and friends came from across the country to witness the 20-minute ceremony.  Some crossed state lines for the first time in their lives.  Some bought dresses for the first time in their lives.  Some wore matching socks for the first time in their lives. 

It was a very special occasion.


Curt is very much my compliment… very, ah, stoic and logical and black/white.  I tend to lean towards passionate and creative and improvisational.  This combination has led to some knock-down, drag-out fights… but also to a whole new world of understanding.  We have this farm because I am quick to make decisions and very convincing in the ‘it will be good!’ category.  We have a working budget because The Boy understands numbers and can see the future.  We go together.  It’s the rule.

I like you, Curt.  Thank you for meeting me at the altar.
