The picture above was taken in New Orleans ten years ago when we celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. Today, to save you the math, we celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. I share this picture (knowing that my wife will yell at me) as proof of several things.
- We were early to the selfie movement. #trendsetters
- Food in the American South tastes better than food in California. #notsurethatisreallyus
- My wife is Benjamin Button. #truestory
Time doth march on, but some things age well. Like my wife. And our love.
My particular faith leads me to believe that although there is an expiration date on this body of mine that there is more—and better—to come. The effect this has on my attitude toward the problems in this old world and the increasingly frequent reminders of the aging process is gigantic.
Some things are undeniably getting worse. I want to be someone who is constantly getting better. Thanks to my wife, and our love, I know that such a thing is possible.
