exciting, informative, snarky, and very likely fabricated tales of life as an american expat in london

filed under: now *that's* love, photo

four years ago today, i went to a bar to meet up with a guy i’d met at a christmas party, who i only vaguely remembered as being “cute”. it wasn’t the best first date i’d ever had. (in particular, i had bronchitis and had to excuse myself for several coughing/gagging fits, then topped it off with a classic jen-plant by tripping over my own feet – how sexy was *i*??!) i had no idea my life was changing that night.

three years ago, we stood on a beach with the sun setting and promised to stick together like glue. promised that no matter what this crazy world throws at us, we’ve got each other, and nothing else matters. then we tested that by travelling around this crazy world.

happy anniversary, babe. i love you more than you could ever know.

    OK, I’m not pregnant and I’m all teary-eyed too. Love your vows! And you got married in Cape Town – how utterly fabulous.

    Happy anniversary to you both.
