Five years ago yesterday, Dan and I showed up at Philadelphia's City Hall, him in a suit, and I in a bright blue mini dress, with wedded bliss on our minds. Surrounded by our parents and my two cousins, we said our vows in judge's chambers. A steak dinner at Ruth's Chris followed, as well as some of the most fun pictures we've ever taken in our lives. My cousin Hayley acted as photographer, and my cousin Danny as photographer's assistant. We snapped shots at City Hall, Love Park and the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the freezing Philadelphia cold. Rocky poses and laughter commenced. We raced the remaining sunlight to capture all the fun of that day, all while we hopped in and out of cabs, and Hayley lovingly yelled at us to run up the steps, to look at the camera, to look wistfully off in the distance, to flash the rings.
And now five years later here we sit, in our little home in SwitzerFrance, with our baby girl Oswin. We've traveled the world, suffered the loss of loved ones to illness, made friends, lost friends, and learned a lot about ourselves in the process. For all the uncertainty in life, we always know that we have each other, and knowing that is all I need to know.
A la prochaine friends...
