Happy Anniversary: Here’s Cool Mum and Dad on Their Wedding Day 13 Years Ago


Yesterday marked 13 years of the Cool Marriage! Here’s a snapshot from the wedding video, which we watched with the Cool Bros last night.

On the blessed day, Cool Mum was about to turn 22, and I was 25. I wonder what the 2002 editions of ourselves would think if they knew what they were really getting into, including:

  • Cross-country band trips in an un-air-conditioned truck
  • Unfairly cheap trips to Europe
  • Buying a house and its requisite yard work
  • Having a baby
  • Leaving everything to try NYC
  • Staying here
  • Living in tiny apartments
  • Living with roommates
  • Losing my job
  • Having another baby
  • Floating around Florida for half-a-year not knowing where we should live
  • Committing to NYC
  • A lot more moving

On one hand, it’s hard to believe 13 years have flown by. But as we recount the plot twists in the story, in a way it doesn’t seem like enough. Regardless, I pray for many more with my cool, beautiful bride at my side.
