Seven Years Young.

That’s how old our marriage is.

Seven years ago, Greg “willingly surrendered his testicles” to me. *

Greg stood in a courtroom at the St. Louis County Courthouse and told Judge DePriest that yes, indeed, he would marry the woman who “seemed very nice at first but is actually crazy enough” to cause some members of his family to worry for him and his happiness and to recommend he break off our engagement. **


Bet it sucks to be proven wrong.

Happy Anniversary, Greg! I love you, and I’m grateful you had the good sense to ignore some of the broads in your family. I can’t imagine doing this with anyone else.
