Wouldn't it be Nice

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong


I waited until today to publish an announcement (Valentine's Day), but last Friday my partner in crime and other domestic adventures these past 25 years became my legal partner in matrimony. Yep, we tied the knot, got hitched, jumped the broom, said I do and quit the single state.



We had a simple civil ceremony at the home of William Slemp, a gentleman that has official authorization to perform this task. Plans are to use our event as an excuse to throw a party in spring when the weather is more favorable for a garden setting.

While some brides fantasize about a white wedding ceremony, I want a whimsical one. Silliness will be the watchword. Our daughter will serve as my maid of honor, who-so-ever wants can pull out an old bridesmaid's gown and join the procession, an adult co-worker wants to be a flower girl and one invitee has announced she will come as a goddess. Photographs will of course commemorate this foolishness.

So I leave you with a multiple choice question

Why Now?

a. Maybe the time had come
b. Health Insurance
c. Love
d. All of the above
