Happy Anniversary

edmarcia9-04.jpgEleven years ago today, the First Mate and I got married in our Catholic church in Huntington Beach. We had known each other for over four years and dated on and off for two before tying the knot. The night before had been a blustery, rainy night, and the day afterwards turned into a stormy mess as we made our way to Lake Tahoe for our honeymoon, but our wedding day turned out to be a delightful, sunny day.

We had an afternoon wedding and a beautiful reception, which I often call The Most Expensive Dinner I Never Ate. I'm told the food was outstanding, and it certainly looked terrific, but with all the time we spent chatting with the 200 or so guests, we ran out of time to eat more than a couple of bites of it. We had a terrific time dancing and being the center of attention for a few hours, before we finally slipped away, famished, to get changed. In fact, we stopped for food on the way home; I'm sorry to say that our wedding dinner actually wasn't the delicious buffet of fine dining we left behind, but the drive-through Jack in the Box on Pacific Coast Highway.

Our marriage has had its ups and downs since that beautiful day, but every day I love her more, and every day I find out more about the abundant blessings of God by the privilege of being married to her. With the new pancreas transplant, we have the promise of many more years to come.

I love you, sweetheart, and happy anniversary from the luckiest guy on the planet.
