Six?

This weekend, Scott and I pass the six-year mark. That is, six years of marriage. We started dating four years before that, so later this summer we’ll hit the milestone of 10 years of togetherness.

Wow.

According to a random website that came up when I searched “wedding anniversary gifts,” the traditional gifts for the 6th anniversary are candy or iron. The modern gift is wood. Seriously? Who comes up with this stuff? Lame-o. I’m trying not to eat (as much) candy  lately (as a consequence, I crave nothing but chocolate), so that’s out. And I’m completely failing to think of something I want that’s made of iron…multivitamins – no, wrought-iron gate – no…ooh, an IRONman watch? That could work. 🙂

Happy us, husband! I pray that we get lots and lots more years of “us” ahead. I’m so happy to be your wife, and I’m looking forward to all of the “Scott jokes” to come.

  1. Congrats, sister blister. How can this be six years, though? I thought your anniversary was on the 28th? Is today the 28th? Am I confused? I did book a flight to the other side of the country than what I wanted. By the way, I’m writing this sitting in the JetBlue terminal in JFK Airport. Next stop, Portland….Maine.

    • Now, now, Brother Matt. If I may respond. READ, for once, a little closer. Your sister said “this weekend” not today. Wow. Wow, no wonder you can’t book your own flights. Did you say that you went ahead and took that Maine trip? Do you have adult supervision? You’re in New York right now?! Welp, nice knowing you.

  2. Note the first two words in the post, cherished brother: “this weekend.” You will learn the ways of the world someday, young grasshopper. 🙂 Enjoy your trip!
