Happy Anniversary to my love, my life, my bestest friend in the whole wide world, my beautiful and brilliant wife Mandy. She is, in all ways, the Knees of the Bees.

O Happy Day

And they said it wouldn’t last.

Or maybe they didn’t say that. I cannot say with any certainty that anyone said that. I have no evidence to back it up. They may not have said it at all. And why would they, really? I mean, look at us there. We are friggin’ ADORABLE.

That was one hell of a party, I can tell you. My cousins lobbed purple M&Ms at each other during dinner. Somehow, large foam props appeared while everyone was dancing during the reception. At one point the DJ insisted we start a conga line, which Mandy then led right out of the hall and into the reception next door, so we could all say hi to the couple who were celebrating their own reception there.

I cannot wait for the next ten years.

And to my amazing wife: SMOOCH.
