Eight years ago today, Valkyrie and I dressed up in some really spiffy clothes, looked deep into each others eyes, and said "I Do."

Thanks for asking me to marry you, Valkyrie.

The tradition of posting something to my journal this year seems to be pretty firmly established: Here is what I had to say for all my anniversary posts.

Today is a work day, although with lots of interruptions. We are planning on going out to dinner tonight, and leaving the kids at a drop-in daycare place. I took the Subaru to the dealership to get serviced, and got my teeth cleaned. Valkyrie had a yoga class.

About all I got for Valkyrie was a nice card. She seems happy with that. Somehow, we now seem to be more involved with living our lives, than giving showy displays of affection.

Six Years!

It seems to have become a tradition of mine that I will remember this occasion with a short post in my LiveJournal - I wasn't using LiveJournal until September 2003, so my third anniversary is the first with a note. There are also posts for the fourth and fifth.

Somehow, this year we didn't put a lot of time or thought into gifts to each other. I got Valkyrie a card that made her very happy.

At six years together, we seem to be settled down into the comfortable groove of a life together. Our kids are growing nicely, with Corwin in kindergarten, and Kjersti a Terrible (and Terrific) two.

Anniversary gifts for the fifth anniversary are either wood or silverware. Somehow, we ended up doing both, I think. I got a nice set of silverware for Valkyrie; and while we were shopping for the silverware, Valkyrie found four nice wooden chairs that we are now using in the kitchen.

After five years, we seem to be settling down into a comfortable life together. The kids are growing, the house is steadily becoming nicer and more organized. Kjersti radiates cuteness. Corwin is great fun, and a playful three year old. The two fight some (like kids that age will), but overall, they are very good to each other.
