Hey, I'm going to be married for 11 years this month!
13 years is GOOD. Congratulations to you guys, and I wish you many more.

I have another friend whose eldest was born on their anniversary. It's hard to juggle the celebrations, but a good reminder of all that holds a couple together.

Congratulations and happy anniversary. I agreed with every word of this post and I choose to see the good, like you. There is plenty of sorrow and pain in the world, but you don't have to go looking for it where it isn't evident. I'll bet there were plenty of content people at that fair, I'm glad you see it that way too.

Thank you so very much, Marti--18 years! That's big!

You're right, Omaha--it's all in how you choose to see the world...
