I’m currently in the Caribbean (Turks and Caicos) celebrating 20 years of marriage to Shannon. (No, I didn’t get this picture from Google images, that’s actually us. Green bowties were really hot in 1991.)
Since we try to live simply, there’s part of me that feels guilty about this, so here’s my rationalization. For the 5th anniversary we had a newborn and no money, so we went out to dinner. For the 10th we lived a long ways from family and had no money, so we went out to dinner. For the 15th, we still lived a long ways from family and still had no money, so went out to dinner.
How does all of this affect you? I probably won’t be blogging this week. I know this will be hard for some of you, but if it helps think about us on a Caribbean beach.
