Ten Years



As of today, the Lady and I have been married for ten years. (In a week, we will have been together for eighteen years—half our lives.) Gustav derailed our more elaborate anniversary plans,* but we managed pawn the kids off on friends for a few hours and make it to Galatoire's for a lovely (and immensely entertaining) Friday lunch. Good food. Great people watching. And the company was perfect.

* Not the first time our anniversary has been derailed by a hurricane. (And the wedding itself almost suffered the same fate.) Annou warned us against getting married during hurricane season. We didn't listen.

  1. Congratulations. Glad you made it back (to an intact) home in time to celebrate.

    It tells a lot about your relationship that you managed to do something celebratory, impending storm or not. I wish you many more happy years and keep in mind what I tell newlyweds, "Some years are better than others."

  5. Congratulations! If you'd been in New York, you'd have been able to celebrate with the soggy remnants of a second storm (Hanna).

    Congratulations to you both. That's a great photo of your bride. I missed my b-day cause of Gustav (we were on the road to Plain Dealing), but I'm thinking of doing a do-over next week. I'll be in touch. Teresa
