Yesterday Sam and Icelebrated our second wedding anniversary at Shiro, a “trendy and upscalelounge bar” in Bombay. It is by far the best sushi place we’ve found, aftermuch exploration.   The meal was asensual delight with exquisite food, soft lighting, and spicy music.  

We indulged in some ofour favorite dishes as we reminisced about our two years as husband and wife.  Ourwedding ceremony, which we wrote ourselves, remains one of our most preciousmemories.  It was truly a reflection of the love we share, and ourfamilies and friends were fully present through personal reflections and groupvows.  My dad and I shared a fun father-daughter moment as we danced apolka together.  Bollywood hits blared from the speakers as our friendBrijesh encouraged everyone to join in with the classic move “turning the lightbulb”. 

Memories of our two-week honeymoon are engraved in ourhearts.  Affectionately nicknamed our “Temples, Tombs, and Forts Tour” wetraveled through much of Rajasthan and some northern cities. Standing on asnow-covered ridge in the Himalayas I was overcome with awe, and the Taj Mahalbrought me to tears.  We enjoyed dinner at a palace in a hilltop fortoverlooking the city of Jaipur.  The trip culminated in a stay at the TajLake Palace, a hotel that is the former summer palace of the regional king.  Itwas at dinner one night that I overheard a tour guide proclaim to his group, “Indiawill never surrender the cashew nut!”  Sam assured me he probably said “theKashmir” not “cashew nut”, which I admit makes more sense.

I have learned so much about love and friendship from Samin the last two years. He is generous and kind, smart and thoughtful.  Heloves me all the time, in spite of myself.  Sam and I share a life that isfull of adventure and travel, and face life’s ups and downs together.  Aswe look back on the days since our wedding, we also look forward to the yearsto come.
