7 Sassy Years

Today marks the day 7 years ago my lovely bride and I got married in Poughkeepsie, surrounded by friends and family. What an unforgettable day. And what an amazing 7 years it’s been.

We’ve had so much fun together over the years and I’m so lucky to call Jen my wife that I always struggle with what to write in posts like these (maybe that’s why last year, for the first time, I neglected to even publish an anniversary blog entry, as I’ve done every other year of our marriage; I was even feeling guilty this morning when I realized I neglected to do so last year).

So I thought I’d let my Dad, an incredibly gifted writer, share some memories from this day 7 years ago on my behalf — this is a snippet from a hilarious and touching email he sent both of us today (at midnight on the dot, our time):

After I left Gabe with his private last-minute reflections, I wandered to the back of the chapel, and got a glimpse of you, Jen, surrounded by your entourage of adoring maidens, and you looked so beautiful.  I thought I was catching a glimpse of some kind of Cinderella or Snow White fairy tale about to unfold.  The ceremony was exquisite, intimate, smart, touching, and brilliant.  My heart was in my throat most of the time, and floods of memories came streaming back to me as I watched you two get married.  This was truly one special day — two amazing people embarking on a journey together filled with hope, love, respect, joy, humor, and deep mutual caring.  Life doesn’t really get any better than this.

I couldn’t have said it any better myself — and life continues to be excellent year after year. Jen and I are fortunate to have such a great family and to be surrounded by so many awesome friends.

I love you, Jen, and here’s to the next 7 years of marriage and beyond!
