Twelve years ago today, we stood in front of our family and friends, me in a rented tuxedo, Alix in a dress she made herself.

Twelve years ago today, we looked each other in the eye and said “I will.”

Twelve years ago today, we slow-danced while everyone blew bubbles at us.

Twelve years ago today, we got in my old convertible and drove off into a new world.

Twelve years ago today and I still can’t believe my luck.
