GOD with honour hang your head,
Groom, and grace you, bride, your bed
With lissome scions, sweet scions,
Out of hallowed bodies bred.

Each be other’s comfort kind:
Déep, déeper than divined,
Divine charity, dear charity,
Fast you ever, fast bind.

Then let the march tread our ears:
I to him turn with tears
Who to wedlock, his wonder wedlock,
Déals tríumph and immortal years.

--Gerard Manley Hopkins, "At the Wedding March"

Happy Anniversary, Darling.

Congratulations!

Is it just me or does your husband bear a bit of a resemblance to Wil Ferrell in this picture?

HAHA! YOU'RE SO CUTE!!!!!! Happy Anni. I know I'm late, but hey... now my comment will stand out. Or something...

(Perhaps the thing that struck me most about this post, besides how stinking cute you two are, is that you got all the accent marks in all the right places in the poem. I'm not good at making accent marks on the computer. I'm insanely impressed right now.)

:-D

Whew! I thought Blogger was going to totally prevent me from leaving any more comments here; I got "could not connect" errors yesterday afternoon. Apparently all is well now. And for the last (and next) eighteen years, yes?

Congratulations!
:-D
