At present is my twenty-fifth wedding ceremony anniversary, and that at all times will get a lady asking the Huge Questions.

Questions like, “What, no cake?”

And, “how do you spell ‘anniversary,’ anyway?”

And, “Does this appear suspicious to you?”

(“It is. Trying. At me.”)

After spending one half of my married life scripting this weblog – which, WOW, amirite? – I’ve seen sufficient anniversary muffins to know many have invaluable life classes to show.

For instance, this one reminds us that the primary few years of marriage are a studying expertise.

A 4 12 months “anniversity,” if you’ll.

And this one encourages us to by no means hand over within the face of adversity, poor planning, or earthquakes:

Its at all times the thought that counts. ALWAYS.

And this is a invaluable reminder that, after 24 years, even essentially the most devoted couple would possibly want just a little extra space:

Love is available in all shapes, sizes, and mixtures, so by no means choose.

Some of us would have given up after, like, TEN weddings – however not these two loopy children!

And at last, anniversaries aren’t simply in regards to the large, life-changing moments; they’re about celebrating all of the on a regular basis stuff you get to share collectively. Issues like holding palms in the course of the fireworks, or studying to one another on lengthy automotive rides … and even only a new pair of dentures:

Although for the report, Sweetie, I feel I am going to attract the road at sharing dentures.

Due to Sarah G., Jaime & Jen, Janet R., Mika R., Brad L., Brittany T., Anna F., Christine M., & Kristin R. for serving to us have fun. John and I are in Atlanta tomorrow for Dragon Con, btw, so I hope to see a few of you right here!
