"It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you"

Five years ago, Brad did me the honor of becoming my lawfully wedded, with the whole old-fashioned "til death do us part" line (even the priest who married us said he hadn't used the old wording for years!)

Among family and friends, and with me dead on time for perhaps the only time in my life, we exchanged rings and vows and made a lifetime commitment. Then we had a kickass party!

Our lives have been far from normal since then, and we still don't get to live together or see each other that often, but despite it all, I know we made the right choice, that we are better toegther (even when we're not together)- our whole is more than the sum of our parts.

I'm sharing some pictures below because I remain enamored of my wedding photos even five years later (thanks Greg!) and in case anyone else wants to check them out. Brad and I are together for the next few days, so my already sketchy posting might get even worse, but I'll be back eventually...

Happy 5th Anniversary Bradley!

new levels of tinkering dorkiness

OK, so I did indeed manage to (1) fix an vintage 8-track player we inherited from my aunt, and (2) jerry-rig it to play my iPod. It is a nerdy insane thing, but it made me so very very happy. I've blogged about it over here:
