One Year Into Forever

Still on vacation in Pismo, making a quick post while Spinner forages for breakfast.  Diego’s getting spoiled rotten with the long, leashless, walks on the beach.  This morning’s was a special treat though.

About halfway down the beach we stumbled on (and Diego sniffed) a young couple enjoying a bottle of champagne with the sunrise.  Didn’t want to intrude to the point of asking what they were celebrating – settled for luring Diego away so they could get back to their moment.  Have to assume though they were there to help celebrate our anniversary.  Yep, our wedding was one year ago today, on the second day of California’s 2008 marriage equality window.  The marriage is still going strong despite the best efforts of the H8ers, and I love Randy even more today then I ever have.

    Have you started to bicker yet? That usually comes after the first year.

    No, we’re still good.

    Hey Chuck! I was just getting ready to ask you when your wedding anniversary was. Guess I’m late by more than a few months! :( Sorry Randy & Chuck for not wishing you a timely happy anniversary, but the wish for you both is still there.

    I was remembering your reception, which was, although very stressful the morning of, as close to perfect as it could be from a guest’s p.o.v.– everything from the decorations, to the delicious food, to the fantastic entertainment, to the warmth of the people there celebrating. I will safely include the amazing cake that we sadly had to miss out on due to a little newborn, but will always wonder just how delicious it was.
    Wishing you both the best, and another year of happy memory-making!

    Thank you so much for the kind words. Please send more pics of the bundle of joy who is more like a bigger bundle of toddler now, right?

    All my best to you and yours,
