FIRST, I have to give credit to Marielle for creating this cheesy but quite appropriate photo art (using Photofunia, I assume).
Marie is actually complaining about this photo. She said that to be fair, MarielleÂ should have also used her college graduation photo. But that would not have made the photo right either, because although MarielleÂ used my graduation photo (According to her it is the only decent enough photo of me that she could find. Ouch!), it was actually taken during my MBA graduation just about 5 years ago.
Setting aside our frivolous complaints, MarielleÂ actually made a photo that perfectly captures the very essence of the last 12 years. Yes,Â it’s been 12 years that Marie and I have been stringed and attached together. As far as I can tell neither of us is complaining. Or maybe I should speak only for myself, LOL.
Our life together isn’t perfect and between the two of us there are still many dreams that are yet to be realized. But our own personal dreams have now been set aside in favor of our dreams for â€“ and the personal dreams of â€“ our two wonderful kids, MarielleÂ (9) and JohanÂ (7). I guess you can say that MarielleÂ and Johan are the strings that bind us together, forever.
HAPPY 12TH ANNIVERSARY, MOMMY!
