Anniversary Day Flashback

Friday March 6th is the 15th anniversary of my marriage to my wonderful wife. To commemorate this day, I will flashback to 1994. We were driving through the mountains to go to our wedding and there were two songs that came on the radio that always remind me of that day.

The first is "Amazing" by Aerosmith. The song was part of some countdown on the radio and the dj told the story of Steven Tyler. Tyler was described on the radio as a shy person who changed after high school into the extrovert he is now. My wife (fiancee' at that moment) pointed out that I could make changes too, like Steven Tyler. While I am no where near the extrovert that Steven Tyler is today, I have made some changes along those lines to be more outgoing. Anyway, when I hear this song I often think of the support I received and the time spent with the person who would become my wife.

The second song is "The Calling" by Yes. I am a big Yes fan and was unaware at the time that the prog rockers were recording a new album. The surprise and thrill of hearing a new song from a favorite band I took to be a good omen (though I am generally not superstitious).

I was hoping to get this post up during my anniversary but fell short of finishing it off in time. It's been a wonderful 15 years and many more to come! I love you Bunny!

Regarding the trip up: sorry I was already trying to change you. Gee, it's not like we were even married yet. :p

Love you honey!

Happy Anniversary. Jeannie it is our job to change them. What we don't realize is that while we try to change them we change ourselves. It is called growing old together.

Hi Bunny, I love you too!

Thanks Pamwax!

Awwww, you are truly a special fella, Mr. Mike. My dear one still does not remember our anniversary or my birthday or anything like that. Oh well, he's good with other things. :)
