Third Anniversary

Today is mine and Becca's third wedding anniversary. Once again, because we are the most romantic people on Earth, it took Facebook to remind us of the actual date. We don't really think of this as our real anniversary, because we count from our first date, which was 20 December 1994. So though we've been married for just 3 years, we've been together for just over 17 and we've lived together for just over 10. It's also, inexplicably, my sister Jayne's first wedding anniversary, so since she kind of took the date, the 20 December date just feels that much more ours, anyway.

But it's nice to be reminded that three years ago today, we went out on a tremendously rainy day and ran away to get married without telling anyone. I don't think we told anyone about it for a month. We stood up in front of a judge on our own and said our vows, both wearing matching Superman tee shirts because we don't have fancy clothes and we're both silly and still big kids. We felt already married for the longest time. All we did was make it official.

I'm just glad she's with me. That's still the really unbelievable part to me.

Happy Wedding Anniversary, Becca!
