19 on 07/08/09

Never again will we hit oh 7, oh 8, oh 9.

We picked the date 7-8-90 because we liked the way it looked - and because we couldn't wait any longer... Obviously (I hope) this dress wasn't picked for an early July wedding in Southwest Florida... November was the original plan - but then education got in the way and delayed the plans a bit. If I did it again, what I've seen on "Bridezillas" , "My Fair Wedding", "Platinum Weddings", "Say "Yes" to the Dress" and a host of other educational shows, tells me I should have just bought another dress when we changed the date.
When speaking of the last 19 years (which have gone by at breakneck speed)...

I could say "blissful" but that would be lying.

I could say "uneventful", but that also, would be lying.

"Bump-free-smooth-sailing"... another lie.

But interesting, boring, encouraging, everlasting, enduring, educating, illuminating, frustrating, comfortable, uncomfortable, challenging, infuriating, infatuating, spiritual, Barnum and Bailey-esque, liberating, confining, trying, exciting, exhilarating, exhausting, hilarious, depressing, heart pumping, puzzling, adrenaline rushing, average, below average and above average would all be correct. That's more positive than negative, by the way. Guess that's why it works.

Would I marry him again? Absolutely. But I'd buy the crinoline slip next time, ditch the honeycomb bells and have more of the cake.

We're headed for "happily ever after" with some stops along the way.
