Today is our 17th wedding anniversary! We are fortunate that today is just as sunny, dry and breezy as it was seventeen years ago. We had a small wedding, with both the ceremony and reception taking place in our home at the time. It was a sort of well organized pot luck, in that we had folks sign up and let us know what they were bringing. We supplied the corned beef and the lox from the purveyors on Water Street in Worcester. My Mom, our nieces Carrie and Kate and their parents Gail and Ron, ferried the flowers up from a rendezvous point in West Boylston. Then they served as cheerleaders and caterers as they helped us get everything set up. Gail molded the cream cheese and cut out pickles to spell out our initials on top!
There were just a couple of glitches and hiccups, including an uncle locked in our only bathroom, which required Chuck to remove the lockset from the outside! But a smiley face was drawn on a paper plate (was that you Carrie?) and hung over the opening left in the door and all was well. It was a great day. It continues to be a great marriage. We've said before that we work hard at our marriage, but it never feels like hard work. May it always be so!
