In Honor of Love


Today is my 13th wedding anniversary. Thirteen years married, but nearly 19 years together from the first kiss to this moment. In honor of love, here are some of my favorite couples; friends, lovers, requited, unrequited, thrilled, longing--obsessed, in thrall, in sympathy, in love, in like--persevering, I've found all of these things with Sarge over the last two decades.












Laura & Almanzo,
Severus & Lily,
Thompson & Thomson,
Eva & Max,
and us

Congrats, little one! Nearly 20 years together is something to be proud of. In our family, 13 is a very lucky number. Loved seeing your wedding pic.

Congratulations! May the future bring you years that are doubly as special and doubly as blessed as those you've already had.

You can take credit for the full 19 years. I recently had an anniversary and added the time spent before signing the document. Why not? You're living like married people anyway. It's only fair.

Oh, and congratulations. Many more.

Happy anniversary to you both!

Love is something cherished and honorable. When two people discover a love that is timeless, enduring and filled with passion it is to be shouted, proclaimed and celebrated. May your love serve to inspire and encourage others.

Love never ceases to give more of itself.

Take pride in your accomplishment because maintaining a Pairbond is no easy task for homo escapeons.

It is a relatively new evolutionary adaptation for mammals..actually birds seem to have a better handle on this...and humans, especially well educated ones, seem to be woefully inept at monotonous, I mean monogamous :) relationships.

The authentic adoration that you two share for each other is obvious and I have no doubt that you'll be celebrating anniversaries until the cows come home or the zombies burst through the front door...since you and I will prolly miss the Rapture.

Congratulations, mazal tov, l'chay′im & way-to-go!

Happy anniversary and wishing you many many more, I only had nine but every year was a good year and I'm glad I had even that small window of opportunity! Big hugs.

May you enjoy many more years of happiness together. I shall raise a glass in your honor. Congrats and Best Wishes to both of you.

otin said...

It is great to be together for so long and to still hear the love in your writing that you have for him and he obviously has for you! Happy anniversary!

Liza said...

It is now late Monday evening, but I wish you all the very best. Happy belated anniversary (my 10 year is coming this Friday). What a lovely tribute.
Thanks for sharing.

Old Knudsen said...

Well done for 13 and 19 years, I suppose that means sex then, don't forget to post about it. I'm glad you put the names of the couples as it would have done my head in trying to remember the little hoose people.

Skeeter said...

That's really great, Leah. Happy Anniversary :-)

Best wishes,

13 years? 19 together? Blimey. If I met somebody today and had that long, I'd be, (wait a minute), I'd be bloody 50. 19 years.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Congratulations!
Keep it up!

Happy Anniversary!

I never tied the knot with my man, so no real anniversary, but 19 years ago I met eyes with him and haven't looked back.

Congratulations and thanks for sharing a little of your life with us.

Madame DeFarge said...

Sorry to come into this late, but happy anniversary and hope you have thousands more ahead of you. You've both very lucky to have each other.

JGH said...

Well, I'm too late for the contest! But hope I'm not to late to wish you a happy anniversary and many more happy years together!

Suzanne said...

Amazing, but you're too tiny. I want your glasses to be bigger! And Sarge's tie too!!

muralimanohar said...

Ha..I totally recognized Laura and Manly. :p

Happy anniversary! :D We've got more on you in married years, but since we didn't know each other before the engagement, and then were only engaged a year, you have two more years on us all around. :p Here's to many more!!!
