Sweet Sixteens

Today is my 16th wedding anniversary. This is us at Kiana Lodge on Agate Passage, a short ferry ride from Seattle. It was an amazing day, but stressful as I prefer not to be the center of attention! For our honeymoon we were dropped by float plane to the middle of the British Columbian wilderness where a lone cabin sat on the shore of a lake. No electricity, no technology. But the ice chest was stocked with champagne and steak and every three days a pilot flew in to drop off provisions and make sure neither of us had been eaten by a bear. We caught enormous Rainbow Trout and cooked them on the wood stove in big cast iron pans. It was the best way to chill out after a big stressful wedding.

Today is also my 25th High School reunion. This is me at 16. My marriage is as old as I was in this photo. Weird. My marriage may not be looking as fresh, but it’s definitely wiser than this sap!

Ah, it was a beautiful day, 16 years ago. What a wonderful wedding you had, with perfect weather. I'm so happy for the two (now four) of you.
Good luck with your recovery. Enjoy the vicodin or percoset.

Despite your temporary disability, I'm happy to see the scanner hand is still functioning!

Happy was a lovely event sixteen years ago!

One of my life regrets is missing your wedding. Ben and I had a silly argument that day and because of that we missed the ferry. But we have had the pleasure of watching your life with Scott grow. So wonderful to have seen you and the beautiful children in Seattle recently. My kitties want Hank to come back and build the obstacle course.
