Today, Nov. 2, we've been married six months. I think that together we've experienced nearly every emotion possible over the course of those months -- elation, hilarity, fear, disappointment, contentment, frustration, and grief. What a ride, this marriage thing! Six months may not be a major milestone, but we celebrated with a candlelight picnic of yummy finger foods in our living room last night, leaning on each other with eyes closed as our reception dinner music played. And we made a pact: celebrate "us" often.
