Perhaps all couples deal with the confusion about what dates are important to celebrate in their relationship. For married couples, the date of marriage is the paramount anniversary. There are other dates, too. First meeting, first date, first kiss, etc. Since Tawn and I only recently married, we’ve long used January 3rd as our anniversary as this is the date we first met.
The whole story about how we met – and I think it is a compelling one that should be turned into a screenplay – is located here. I won’t repeat it in this entry – you can read it at your leisure as I know many of you have. But I would like to note that it has been ten years – ten years! – since that day. Ten years finds us in the same city where we spent our first few days together, so perhaps that is telling.
After recently completing my project of having all my old 35mm negatives scanned, I came across the first picture of Tawn and me together.
That’s us on January 4, 2000 in historic Ayutthaya, the former capital of old Siam.
Here’s us two days ago, January 1st 2010. No, the baby isn’t a recent addition to our family! We ran into some friends during brunch who just gave birth to their first daughter, Lada. Notice any changes? I think Tawn looks as handsome as ever!
Happy anniversary Tawn!
