Happy Anniversary to Me!

Wedding 1

I don’t often talk about my life on this blog without tying it to nail art in some way, but today I simply feel like tooting my own matrimonial horn, because it’s my 11th wedding anniversary! Today’s weather is very much like the weather we had the day of our wedding (cool, windy, sporadic rain), although Halloween fell on a Sunday the year we were married – purely from a party perspective, this year’s Saturday is obviously THE choice time.

But pleasantly enough – and I’ve spoken about this before in another wedding-related blog post with some TERRIBLE accompanying nails – it wasn’t the party part of our wedding that I enjoyed the most. Sure, I had a great time mingling, nibbling and dancing the night away with my family and friends in a gorgeously decorated old barn, but the ceremony itself is where I actually had the most (unanticipated) fun, suddenly becoming quite giddy at the prospect of marrying this terrific guy. Our vows were even fun, the two of us kind of winging it. And even though we made a number of personal changes to the standard, non-denominational ceremony in advance, neither one of us got that wound up about memorizing, well, anything or about “performing” in public – I chalk this up to his formative years spent in the theatre and mine spent in the ballet studio; we’re comfortable on a stage. And that comfort made for a fun experience – lots of banter and goofy smiles and the perfect certainty that comes with knowing that you got one of the great ones. That we should all be so lucky. πŸ™‚

And so happy 11th anniversary to the man who puts the Mr. in Mr. Finger Candy. I’d marry you again in a heartbeat, my love, and not just because you’re easily-bought tech support. Well, mostly not. πŸ˜‰

  1. Congratulations and here’s to many more! πŸ™‚ It sounds like you two had a wonderful, memorable wedding. You’re a beautiful couple! Also, how fun to have a wedding on Halloween πŸŽƒ

    • Thank you so much! Although I seriously laughed at your “beautiful couple” comment – pretty sure we have never, ever been called that! I mean, we clean up pretty well, but…! And it was a fun wedding – nothing weird, and we didn’t ask anybody to dress up, which would have been cool, but seemed like a huge relief for our guests, particularly the older ones.

  2. LOL for the tech support comment… You two are adorable together! Happy Anniversary!

    On a side note: the event sounds very cool. And I realize now I missed out on a really good reason to wear a tiara. πŸ˜€
