September 1999, the last year of the 20th century… RC and I got married. Y2K was a letdown, and we are still alive and kicking!
In a recent interview on Humans of New York HONY the Series a comment that really struck me was “money will come back. You can never get time back”. This week never a truer statement was said.
Today as I think about an easy, tasty anniversary meal to prepare on this 30C day, years of fond memories and triumphs interrupt my thoughts. So, so many I can’t begin to choose favourites.
I also pause for a moment to be grateful that Iphones, texting, Instagram and Facebook didn’t exist. Everyone attending our wedding was present :).
Some folks have since passed away, or simply drifted on. We have even both lost our original wedding rings 😦 such is life. We’ve shared a series of dogs – seven so far, lived in a few different cities, eaten a lot of good food, attended a lot of shows together, spent almost two years (not consecutively) living in an RV with at least three dogs, and recently started a significant new chapter in our lives together. We didn’t do any of these things alone or in a vacuum – it takes a village right?
Our wedding was a beautiful day, and our marriage is a beautiful world to exist and dream within. I wouldn’t change a thing. Happy (18 +5 years) Anniversary RC!
