7 years…

October 15, 2009

When I think back to October 7, 2002, there are gaps in my memories. I remember getting ready for the ceremony and struggling to get my fake eyelashes on with my fake nails. (I’m one of those natural girls!!) I remember my dad walking me down the stairs and trying not to trip on my new heals. I remember thinking how odd it was to wear heals in the sand… on the beach. I remember trying not to cry and hoping my husband-to-be didn’t change his mind at the last minute and hop a boat to Cuba.

We stood together in the scorching heat of the Keys and said “I do” to each other and to our flamboyantly gay wedding official and it was a beautiful day.

So much has changed and so much has remained the same. We still constantly make fun of each other and we laugh a lot… mostly at ourselves.

7 years isn’t very long, but after moving 7 times in 2 different states, one fat cat, one skinny cat stolen by our neighbors, 2 dogs, trips to Costa Rica, FL, GA, SC, VA, NJ, NY, DC, VT, WV and multiple layovers in so many airports and hundreds of miles in the car, and hundreds of great meals in fantastic restaurants and hundreds in those that are not so great, bottles and bottles of wine, at least 6 different jobs, and one beautiful child…..

I can’t wait to see what the next 7 years brings.
