15 Years Ago Today, We Were Slow Dancing To This.

Fifteen years ago today Rigel and I were married. Everyone who knows me has heard the story of how we met a gazillion times, so I'll just give you the condensed version here: We were fixed up by a mutual friend and hit it off so well on our first date that we made plans for a second. On our third date I was picking him up at a train station in Paris where we spent a week together, culminating in a day on the lake in Versailles on a rowboat.

How could I not marry this guy?

Let me just say how grateful I am to be married to my best friend, the very best man I know, the most wonderful father I know, and the most kind man I know. So what if he doesn't like my plaid shorts, puts his feet on the table and hates it when I try and give him directions?

This is "our song" that we danced to at our wedding. Okay, so Paul Weller looks a little geeky, but the lyrics still make me teary eyed every time.
