I'm Sobbing Now

I cry a lot less than I used to.  

This is nice.  We spend way less on Kleenex, and I find way fewer snot stains on my clothes.  As does Steven.  

But this, well, this had me sobbing after the first line.  I realize at its heart it's a love story, which is beautiful, but for me, it feels a bit autobiographical.  Please watch it. 

Things that make my head quiet:

Looking at pictures of my nieces and nephews.
My friends saying they think my breathing tics are cute.
Steven scratching my head.

Love is not a mistake.

Get it?  Because it's a post about my anniversary but I feel weird being mushy.  So I put Shma at the beginning to make it insincere.  Like a 5-year-old.

Which, incidentally, is our marriage!  A 5-year-old, that is.

So.  Our marriage.

7 Days

-Nothing makes me happier than watching my sister and her kids walk down my office hallway, in height order, with big smiles on their faces.

-Apparently, Summer Shantini has been living it up, because she couldn't fit into Spring Shantini's pants yesterday.

-My parents came to watch the fireworks.  In the past month they've been to a show of mine, seen my new office and been to our beach.  It's nice to have them in my world.
