My wife and I will celebrate the sixth anniversary of our marriage on June 6, 2012. So yes, we were married on 6/6/6 and this is 6 years later. Lots of sixes.
In roughly two weeks, my wife and I will celebrate the fifth anniversary of our wedding. It’s traditionally the “wood” anniversary, so I’ve considered buying some lumber for my wife and letting her build something with it. Ha. The “new tradition” is silverware, which we now have plenty of.
I dropped my wife off at the Killeen airport Thursday morning. Yes, Killeen has an airport. It’s the first time either of us has lived less than 15 minutes from an airport. I watched her go through the (very short) security line into the terminal, which has only six gates, and then she was gone.[...]
Buying for Her: Nothing makes it easier to Christmas shop for your wife than getting exact instructions. This is one reason my wife and I get along so well: we’re both list-makers, explainers, and mildly obsessive compulsive. Both of us think things through, and then stick with our decisions, so there’s little-to-no confusion in the[...]
This morning, I dropped off my wonderful wife at the OKC airport, so she could return to NYC for the weekend. In more than two years of marriage, this will be our longest separation, both in time and in distance. The previous record was when she went to Tulsa for two days for a work-related[...]

Cassie, you’re right. It works out well that we have some alone time, and some together time. Marline gets her first paycheck on Friday, and things should smooth out after that. (I’m sorry you didn’t get to go to your bazaar… That sucks. But rules are rules.) In the meantime, Marline’s away at a conference.[...]
She Gets Here TOMORROW! I remember thinking that the day would never come when I could say that. I remember thinking, “Two and a half months is a LONG time.” And it felt like it lasted forever, even when I wasn’t thinking about it. In the past 75 or so days, I’ve written about 200[...]
(There is a more permanent version of this entry here, on my website.) As promised, I will attempt to detail the way I met Marline, the love of my life. She has already written a relatively detailed account from her perspective, so I will try to just give my end of it, with a little[...]
