Two very cold students in 2005

I do not have the secret to a long and happy marriage. In fact, those that are searching for the secret are often the same folks who will never find it. I married a friend five years ago today. The minutes, hours, days, months and years since have been filled with a lot of good times and others that did not quite live up to their full potential. But ours is neither typical nor atypical. Our life and love together is just uniquely ours. Five years in a world that has a lot of cynicism about the institution of marriage is quite a milestone. No matter the wind or the weather, there will be the two of us.

My closest friend. My wonderful wife. Us.
