Anniversary #13; Hanging In There So Far

Today is my 13th wedding anniversary. I realized yesterday that I’ve never written about my anniversary before, and since I’ve had this blog 3 years now and my business blog 6, and I’ve been writing my newsletter for 7 years, I find that kind of incredible.

We actually met on December 7th, 1994; she doesn’t remember the date, but I do. I was working at a health center and she came in as a patient looking to see if she could save money on some dental work she needed done. Y’all might not believe it, but she actually pursued me at the time; I couldn’t do it because of medical privacy laws. My dad always thanked her for that, because he said he couldn’t see me asking her out first. Hey, all four of my long term relationships began with the woman asking me out first; isn’t that something?

We’ve had a lot of fun over the years. I’ve told her I’m Roger Rabbit to her being Jessica Rabbit; she laughs at me all the time. Our first real date had us going to a Chinese buffet, where I had an encounter with tofu that caused me to spit it out and kept her laughing and crying for almost 30 minutes. There’s been a lot of incidences like that over the years; she’s a great audience.

That picture you see above is, of course, from our wedding. She made that wedding dress; the woman has talent. I still have that suit; doesn’t quite fit as well as it did when I bought it, unfortunately. I got a lot of enjoyment out of that cake, which her father paid for, but which I ordered from my favorite bakery, Harrison Bakery; those folks need a website. My friend Scott took this picture, and that’s his daughter Krystal to the left; great kid. Okay, I just have to say this; cake, mmmmmm…

Later today we’ll be going to the Spaghetti Warehouse for dinner because, oddly enough, they sent us a coupon for half off our meal for our anniversary; I didn’t even know they knew when our anniversary was. This is a great way to do business, that’s for sure.

Anyway, it’s a special day, and I’m happy to have made it to 13 years. Truthfully, there’s a lot of people who never thought I would ever get married; I’m betting they’re still surprised. lol Meanwhile, let me help give you a little bit of motivation saying that you can do anything you want to in your life. Try to tell me this isn’t cute:

    1. Trust me, I’ll be kind to the lasagna. lol And in health care, a breach of privacy could cost as much as $50,000; I’m gonna hide behind that as much as I can.

  4. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary Mitch. Let all your dreams come true and every minute be a feast!

    1. Thanks Rachel; been a good day so far. Heck, they’re all pretty fun, at least while she’s laughing. 🙂

  5. Congratulations, Mitch! That video actually had me laughing out loud (well as loudly as I could with a sleeping baby)

  6. Hey Mitch,

    Congrats on the 13 years. That is absolutely wonderful. And I’m in agreement about Harrison Bakery. they are the best in Syracuse. I’m just glad they aren’t very close to me. Because those half moons are always calling my name. Nobody can make half moons like Harrison LOL. Tell Robin I say hey.

    1. Thanks Linda. We had a great time today at dinner, then doing some other things afterwards, including getting my cookie at Barnes & Noble.

  7. Happy Anniversary, Mitch.

    I hope you and your wife had a wonderful day and a tasty meal.

    Loved the affirmation video, now I’m going to share it on my Facebook wall.

    All the best,


  8. Congratulations. Your post took me back to our 13th which we celebrated at New Delhi with a fancy dress party. Till Urmeela passed away last year, we celebrated every anniversary with some do or the other. My best wishes to both of you that you see many many more anniversaries.

    1. Thanks Rummuser. We’ve gone fairly sedate with our anniversaries, but when we hit 20, we’ll probably have a nice party.

    1. Glen, I’ll invite everyone I know, but I doubt most folks would come; kind of far for some people, including you lol

  9. Happy Belated 13th Anniversary Robin and Mitch. I hope you had a great day and many more.

    1. Thanks Barbara, and I’m glad you enjoyed the motivational video as well, the cutie!

  10. Congratulations Mitch on 13 years of marriage. I actually had to chase after my wife. She even got out of my first offer for a date with a lie. 😉

    That cake looks nice, bet you can still taste it 😀

    That kid was cute, would have been funny though if she had fallen into the basin.

    1. Thanks Sire. You know, I thought kind of the same thing when I saw her up on the counter, only I was saying it would not have been funny if she had fallen into the basin and thought her parents probably should’ve been smacked her lender be up there taking that kind of chance in the first place. Turns out she’s 12 years old now, and still has a pretty good head on her shoulders. And yes, I can still taste that cake, and every once in a while head to that bakery and get something from there with that type of frosting on it.

      1. Actually Sire, I went last week, and they have changed up a few things that just kind of freaked me out. They’ve added ice cream, made the counters not only larger but spread them out more so they can show off more of what you get, and in general cleaned the place up a lot. It actually made me decide to try something new while still getting what I know I like; good thing I did that, because I wasn’t crazy about the new thing. Yup, I’m definitely a creature of habit.
