So the one thing I did not mention in the last post was that Michelle and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on Thursday. 10 years and we still love and LIKE each other!
Who knew we’d be in the middle of a global pandemic and told to shelter in place!
Before I share what we did, I think I better explain why I am worried about our 20th….
Taking the clocks back 10 years. Michelle and I were getting married on a Friday evening. We stopped first at Dusted Valley, our home away from home for a preceremony toast. Damn the Manchild and Mathmajor look so young!
We had rented the dining room of the Preservation Kitchen (the place of our first real date night) and our buddy Stu was going to marry us. (He is ordained in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Yep a totally real thing!))
As the time for the wedding got closer, the weather outside took a turn for the worse.
We don’t get many windstorms in April, but one hit that day. Causing bad traffic, power outages and trees down. We were worried that people would be late or not make it at all.
But when we started the walk to Stu
Everyone was there and it was honestly the most fun wedding I had ever been to.
Funny thing, when Stu was presiding, the music from the restaurant was being piped through the speaker. The song playing when we said I do was Superstition by Stevie Wonder! The Manchild made sure to tell us that after.
We had a great time, went on to the Willows Lodge for 2 nights
Then up to Canada for a weeklong honeymoon.
Three weeks later I was laid off from the Mighty P! A scary way to start a marriage, but we survived and got stronger!
Now here we are 10 years later!
Our plan had been to go to Italy this year, we had it scheduled for the end of April. I was going to surprise everyone with a blog post from there!
And, we would normally have go out or even gone away for the weekend to celebrate close to or on the date.
We had to go a different route….
This year we got some YUMMY take Italian take out from Manga.
A quiet, intimate night for the two of us. It was an excellent evening.
YEP, we are bummed about Italy, but it is not cancelled just TBD. We are still going and there will be blog posts! Just not sure when yet.
But now do you see my worry?
Wedding day windstorm that affected a region.
10 year anniversary, global pandemic, shelter in place!
20 year anniversary??? Huge Asteroid coming? Yellowstone erupts?? Aliens attack???
Do I need a bombshelter built before then??
In all seriousness, I can’t imagine the last 10 years without Michelle. I can be challenging, ask anyone. But the adventures we’ve had, the support she given for my bike rides
And being able to be there for her on her half marathons
And just the daily taking care of each other, making sure the other is happy and feeling loved.
We make one helluva team! I am looking forward to the next 10 years! Love you babe!
