Five years, or twelve, or forever, depending on how you count it

Posted by on Friday, May 4th, 2007

Today is our fifth wedding anniversary, and a little over twelve years since Scott and I decided we were, well, us.  I generally try to quell the sap.  But I can’t for a  single second hide the fact that I think I am one of the luckiest people in the world.  I met Scott when I was 16, we both ended up going to Tech and becoming really good friends there, and then risking our friendship for something even better.  Best bet I’ve ever made, that.

A lot of our friends have anniversaries near ours, because they also thought Beltaine was a great time for a wedding.  It makes this time of year really celebratory.  Last weekend, we got to celebrate Aes and Phalen’s 16th anniversary with May Wine and a May Pole.  This weekend, fun with sheep!  I’ve also been listening to Kristin Andreassen’s (of Uncle Earl and Footworks) Crayola a bit too much, because I think it’s the right kind of love song.  And also a kid’s song.  And also a winner in the annual John Lennon Songwriting contest.  Wanna hear it?  You can download a free, legal copy here: (Kristin is in the top left box).  Makes you want to play paddy cake, doesn’t it?

    Oddly, I don’t remember the infamous nursing at your wedding (I mean, I fed my babies often, so why remember?) but I do remember exchanging glances with several other priestess babes, kicking off my shoes and holding off the rain til the end of the vows. Don’t do much weather working, but for you, babe, anything’s possible.

    Thanks for Crayola!!
