My Boy

It’s our anniversary today.  Nate and I met at Book Club in 10th grade (I was 16, he was 15), passed notes in Dr Keeley’s Calculus class senior year, took a few years off from eachother in college, then later got back together.  Eventually one of us said “How ’bout we get married?” and the other one said “OK!” so we got married on Valentine’s Day.  Which was actually an accident, because it happened to fall on the Saturday before my mid-winter school break six years ago… 

He’s the best husband I could ever ask for and a fantastic dad.

Plus he wears the stuff I make him.  

Happy Anniversary, Mr Rae.  And Happy Valentine’s Day to the rest of you!

  1. Happy anniversary! This year, the first day of the Chinese New Year falls on Valentine's day. It doesn't happen every year, but sometimes the calendars align and wham! especially fortuitous coincidence. LOTS of courting folks will call this a Very Good Date to get married on. So happy Especially Fortuitous Anniversary!


    P.S. Of course he wears the stuff you make – they're incredibly tasteful!

    P.P.S. GORGEOUS wedding pics!

  2. Oh melt my heart, what a sweet wedding shot…and the other wedding shot..and with his baby… oh I love a good "I love daddy" message πŸ™‚ Happy anniversary! (And…I completely hear you on scheduling the wedding around school. December would not have been my first choice to get married, but it was his school break… πŸ™‚ It was either that or September, with a 3 month engagement, and that seemed a bit much to ask of our mothers πŸ™‚

  3. Happy Anniversary! My aunt and uncle were married on Valentines Day, too. Last year they spent their 25th wedding anniversary in the hospital with me, celebrating the birth of our little boy πŸ™‚
