Ten years ago I met this guy named James for coffee at Broadway Cafe – my standard internet-dating vetting venue – and I think it’s working out. Since today’s our six-year wedding anniversary! Wahoo!
Since then, we’ve amassed a lot of memories and references that only best friends can have with each other. Laughter and music are the core threads that glide us through, and when all else fails, we have three goofy ass dogs who are always good for comic relief. I love the family we’ve become.
To quote Freddy Mercury (and what good marriage doesn’t include a dead gay rock-n-roll idol’s wisdom? NONE I tell you. ),
Ooh you’re the best friend that I ever had
I’ve been with you such a long time
You’re my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh you’re my best friend
Here’s to the next ten, my friend. Love you to the moon and back.
