Marline and I at Ecola State Park, Oregon (Copyright © 2016 by Rebecca L. Fry.) I often hear: “I can’t imagine life without her” (or him). This is not true in my case. I can indeed imagine life without my wife. As a stay-at-home father of two, I often do imagine life without her. For[…]

10 Years Ago Today, Key West, Florida, just minutes after our wedding (Copyright © 2006 by Wil C. Fry. Some rights reserved.)   Ten Years. It only seems like a long time because it’s nearly a fourth of my life, nearly a third of my wife’s life. The longer we’re together, the less it makes[…]

Gas price nine years ago today, Seminole, Okla. (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry.) Nine years ago today, I was still seven days shy of meeting my wife in person. I knew I’d found someone special because of the conversations we had, both via email and via telephone. Especially telephone. Because I could (and[…]

My wife, 10 months ago (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry.) Nine years ago today, I’d known my future wife for all of 11 days, but only by telephone and internet. The day I met her in person was still eight days in my future. I was in a good place in my life,[…]

Eight years ago today, I walked into a squat courthouse in Key West, Fla., with a beautiful young woman holding my hand. For $123, we were legally married in the state of Florida, including a brief ceremony by a deputy court clerk. June 6, 2006 First photo with my brand new wife, in Key West,[…]

As of today, we’ve been married for seven years. That boggles my mind — it really doesn’t seem that long… Until I start to list all the things we’ve done and seen together (which I won’t do here). And of course, looking at the photos of ourselves from 2006 does make it seem like a[…]

(I’ve updated my June 5 entry to show that we did indeed receive the missing package afterall.) Today marks six years since my wife and I tied the knot in Key West, Fla. Thank you for the well-wishes, card, and phone calls from our friends and family members. We didn’t do anything terribly special to[…]

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.[…]

Christmas Shopping

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[…]

The song says “tomorrow is just a day away.” Right now, though, it’s only a few minutes away. And in New York, tomorrow has already started. (The same goes for Europe, and everything else that’s east of here.) And tomorrow — Sept. 19, 2008 — my wife will turn 27. The following day, I’ll be[…]
