It's our 16th wedding anniversary today! I'd just like to publicly say that in 1993 I married the most awesome man around. Sorry ladies. There are none left. You snooze, you lose.
I found a letter I wrote addressed to Scott and me dated May 25 1999. It said on the front, "do not open until 2009". Wisely I had put it in the back of my bathing suit drawer so I only saw it a couple of times in the last 10 years. Here's what it said:
***written on Lord Elgin Hotel stationary***
"Dear Karen and Scott,
Josee's looking after Elliott and Audrey while we have a romantic getaway. What's your life like now? As of today, Scott travels a lot because of his work for Foreign Affairs and I do home daycare. I currently have two kids, Matthew and Mateo. The 23rd was our 6th wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time. We saw Star Wars Episode 1 and had a drink at the bar where we met. We're staying at the Lord Elgin room 701 and are now on our way to have breakfast.
We do hope you still have a wonderful life together and a couple more kids by the time you read this. Know that we think of our future selves often and hope and pray we stay as in love and good people as we are now.
See you in the new millennium!
Karen & Scott"
Wasn't that cute? I guess I'll have to write another one tonight. But first we're off to the casino to spend some of the kids' inheritance. See you Monday!
