5 Years!

Today marks the fifth anniversery of my marriage. I can honestly say that I love Joy more today than I ever knew it was possible to love another human being. She is my best friend, my joy, my strength, the light of my life. It is funny that over these years we have realized that we are about as different as two people can be, but still we are deeply in love. Although we are always challenging each other with our differences, there isn't a couple I know whose souls are more perfectly matched. One of the proudest experiences of my life has been watching Joy's belly grow with our son. Of all the things in my life that give me joy and peace she surpasses every one. I am blessed far beyond what I could ever deserve to be her husband and the father of her child.

Fun with the blogs

Joya says I spend way too much time on my blogs. Probably so. I spent the last several hours trying to get perfect headers for this blog and The Gridbook Blog. Yes I am officially a nerd, but I think things are pretty nice with the new look.

The Craigslist Crib

So we bought a used crib and changing table on Craigslist the other day. It is kind of scary sitting there in the room that used to be my office, reminding us we have a cute little responsibility on the way soon. So we are compensating for the looming loss of spontaneity in life by going out on lots of impromptu dinner dates. Not the best way to get the student loans paid off, but it is fun to still feel like carefree young newlyweds while we can.

Super Tuesday

Today is the big day. Joya has already voted for Barack Obama, and I'll be voting for Ron Paul later today. I was worried I would have to do one of those lesser-of-two-evils voting choices but I actually found someone I like which is rare.

So if you are in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New York, or Tennessee get out and run your government!
