A full dozen

Yesterday was our 12th wedding anniversary, and to celebrate, we went to an alumni crawfish boil. The afternoon was warm and lazy, the food wonderful, and the beer Abita. We spent hours sitting in the shade, gossiping about old classmates and professors, and watching groups of children chase whatever mischief they could find in the trees.

I can't believe it's been 12 years since we were married, much less that it's been 17 years since we started dating. That's nearly half my life, but I remember the beginning like it was yesterday. It was, wasn't it?

Oh yes indeed. My eldest is graduating from elementary school tonight -- in what, 10 more years, the house will be empty! Think of the fun we can get into then...

Happy anniversary, a day late. :) Sounds like a lovely way to celebrate the day.

I totally understand your reaction. We have our 18th next month (started dating *20* years ago) and it is amazing how fast it's flown by.

It's all about finding the good things, I think. And some great karma, perhaps.

Happy anniversary! What a really nice way to celebrate, much better than the fancy restaurant/roses thing.
My Best Friend married her husband two weeks after high school graduation. They're going on 30 years now.

Awwwwwww. My sister was married out of high school, but we waited til two years post-college. It still feels like we were insanely young, but I don't have *any* regrets.
