Thirty

Today is the fourth of May: the day that Star Wars nerds worldwide go gonzo-nuts with delight.

And, honestly , Wendy and I must also confess to a certain level of anticipation regarding the December release of The Force Awakens.

Ah, but in the Clan McAlpine, there is another yearly celebration that comes with the 4th of May! For Wendy and I, this year marks our 30th wedding anniversary, which snuck up on us (all the clichés about time flying, it turns out, are actually true) and is also an occasion to stop and reflect on how amazing a journey it's been.

Then (1985)
Now (2015)

We've lived in three different countries, have three wonderful -- now adult -- children (see above comment re: time flying), and our memories are crammed almost to bursting with many adventures and experiences together.

May the 4th be with us, indeed. Time to celebrate!
