A year ago today...

Pili & I were married, in the small seaside town where her family has spent many salt-drenched weekends. Our friends and family wove a chuppah for us out of beautiful colored ribbons. We said our vows in front of a rabbi and an episcopal priest. We danced to a kick-ass klezmer band as a full moon rose over the ocean.

It was the best day of my life.

My dad says that every time he sees a full moon now, he feels happy being reminded of that day.

This past year has been marked by disappointment and sadness. But through it all the joy hangs, like that full moon, almost over-stretched with light. I get to spend the rest of my life with this woman.

Happy anniversary pweet-sea. I love you.

p.s. Flickr friends go here for some pretty pictures.

Happy anniversary! Yes, your first year of marriage has been wraught with many emotional highs and lows, but you two have loved and supported each other through it all. That's the real kind of commitment that I wish for you two keep having and for all of us to have.

Much love to you both!

Oh, I almost forgot. In that game I'm playing a lot lately, the villagers all get names the computer assigns. One of my villagers is Pili!
