now we are six

We don't know how it began exactly, except for me and M sitting on some stairs at our church, talking. He walked by and we called out to him, thinking that it would be fun to talk to the new guy Chip. He seemed interesting. He seemed funny. He was also very cute.

We talked about Shakespeare and Tolkien. We also talked about going to a movie.

M couldn't go, as she was soon to be driving across the country to attend graduate school.

He showed up 30 minutes late to our first date. He also brought his roommate in case he couldn't carry a conversation with me.

It turned out that his roommate was silent the entire night.

Because we didn't stop talking, just the two of us.

We were married just three months later.

And that day was six wonderful years ago.

Happy anniversary, Love. Thank you for being the wonderful person that you are.

In case you love these photos as much as I do, look up my wonderful friend Christina, our wedding photographer. Every image--- so lovely. She's a true artist.

Six YEARS. Ah, for more than a minute I wondered if you were pregnant with triplets.

I don't know why but I always feel choked up when I see your wedding pictures.

Congratulations, Friend. Peace was all I wanted for you, and it seems like you've found it.

Are you a munchkin or is Chip just tall?

... oh and I have to agree with Amanda -- I pretty much knew you couldn't be pregnant with triplets although the thought crossed my mind -- but I wondered if your better judgement failed you, and you adopted 3 puppies ;-) K8

Happy Anniversary! I remember when I first met Chip at the engagement party at your parents' house in Alhambra...I left and thought, "Yep. Perfect." I still think that! Love you guys!
