Twelve Years Past

Twelve years ago today, the best decision I ever made had it's day in the Sun, literally.  May 23rd, 1999 was a glorious 85 degrees without a cloud in the Olympia, Washington sky. 

The day was almost as beautiful as my radiant new bride.

Now, a dozen years later, my love for Mrs. LIAYF is stronger than ever, and she has shown me over and over again, through countless acts of selflessness, compassion, humor, and love, that there was good reason that once I saw her walking down the aisle that day, my nerves immediately disappeared. 


We have been through 12 years of ups and downs. Mostly ups.  And we now have an awesome son who is a product of our happy union.  Yes, this is certainly the way it's supposed to be.

Happy Anniversary Honey.

Happy Anniversary! Better late than never, I suppose. My kids decided I shouldn't go online much these days.
