Happy Anniversary

Today is our wedding anniversary. A really special day. It's about the love and the family and the public recognition of our relationship. It was also the one year post-chemo date, and it is the Feast of Diana and the Ascension of Mary so August 15 is a a really propitious day.

This morning we read our wedding vows to each other and the poems that were our gifts.

We will go to The Pruyn House today to walk through the school house where we were married. The memories are all about fun: Mr. Breslin using the old chalkboard to diagram "With this ring, I thee wed" and explaining to guests the exact parts of speech. The moment when John's  brother quite elegantly explained that his reading was in the car and went to get it while we all talked. That is probably --after our vows--my favorite part of the wedding--it was so calm and loving and fun for everyone.

We are alive, in love, growing, laughing and making love in the time of cancer.
