Eleventh Wedding Anniversary: 07/08/06
Eleven years ago we were fresh out of college (at least as undergrads) and sweltering inside the South Pasadena Women's Center. We were getting married! After eighteen months of engagement it first seemed like the day would never arrive. Then it seemed like the day would never end. Now it feels like it happened a lifetime ago.
Back then I couldn't have predicted that today eleven years in the future I would be "celebrating" the day by sharing a waffle with my almost-four-year old son in a townhome we own. Nor would I have figured that I'd be only eight weeks and three days away from the birth of my second child.
Back then I hadn't even decided on the career path of being a web designer or web producer. Heck, I didn't even know those jobs existed. I had only been online myself for little over a year. Ian was still intent on getting a PhD in physics. Now he's working on a PhD in mathematics instead. At least he's finally almost done with graduate school.
One thing that is the same today as it was back then, the weather. It is 91° F inside our house and probably hotter in some places outside.
