Happy Anniversary Angela

Nineteen years and four and a half hours ago, I said "I do" to my college sweetheart. I used to cringe when I heard that term "college sweetheart" because for a rugby playin', Psych Furs listenin', MOMA goin' college kid from NY, it sounded so very typical, ordinary and quite simply, ho-hum.

Fact is, there's been a yin for every yang during the past 19 years with Angela, but typical, ordinary and ho-hum they were definitely not.

Early on in our relationship, we promised each other that if it stopped being fun and we couldn't reign it back in, we would go our separate ways because that's simply no way to live. Granted, it's not always recess over here, but together we laugh, learn and grow more now than we did back when we were young(er).

I wish that's because we're so much wiser or have fewer concerns. But honestly, it's because we owe it to those we love, to respect and take care of what they in turn love. It's the only way for the big picture to work.

Happy Anniversary to THE most incredible person I know
