I’m not a fan of wedding anniversaries and I’ve posted about it before on my personal Facebook- I don’t think it’s fair because I’ve been with my amazing wife for almost 14 years. Why do I have to lose 3 incredible years when someone asks us – “how long have you been married?” Well…technically, we’ve been married for 11 years and I STEEL choose her…hahaha….I’m fucking hilarious!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I would have married her the night we met and I mean that with everything in me; it was truly love at first sight; that is the day I truly feel need to be celebrated.
I was a single guy, had my awesome bachelor pad and was talking to a few girls at the time….the moment she left my apartment, on the first night we met, I stopped talking to anyone else- there was no doubt in my head that I loved her.
We moved in together about a month later and we’ve been with each other every single day since October 20th, 2003. There wasn’t really a rush to get married but I would have at any moment. She got pregnant and we got better jobs and marriage was perfect to start our family and get a nice little tax break. I mean, that is really all marriage is.
She had a Jolly Ranger in her mouth, pretty pregnant and we got married at the court house- we aren’t religious people. We had a big get together afterwards with fried chicken, friends and family.
It has been an amazing (almost) 14 years and while we celebrate 11 years of tax breaks today…I will always consider October 20th, 2003 the greatest day of my life….that is the day my life took a huge change and made me who I am today…I don’t even want to think about where I would be if she hadn’t come along.
There is one thing that is sad about today, when we got married back in 2006, I was A LOT smaller! When we met, I was huge…then, in 2005 I dropped 117lbs! I had started to gain some of it back thanks to pregnant Taco Bell runs and me just slacking, but when I look at the pictures…it amazes me. I was probably around 300-305lbs and I looked pretty awesome.
So today is a big day- I get to remember how lucky I am to have the most amazing wife in the world and I hit 395lbs. – I’m 100lbs away from my lowest, back in early 2006 and I have something to look forward too…getting back to my wedding day weight!
Tonight, we have a babysitter for our son and we are heading out to Buffalo Wild Wings….not even awedding anniversary is enough to take a cheat day….not yet. (June 17th is just around the corner!)
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
