Time really slips by.
It does not feel as if four years have passed since Gow and I were married, and six years since we met/got engaged.
Yeah...we got engaged within a month of meeting.
Very quick, but "when you know, you know".
We did wait 2 years before actually getting married though.
Beijing - April, 2005.
Gary had been traveling through China, and I had been visiting my parents. We met in a youth hostel dormitory a few days before we left for our respective countries (USA-me, UK-him).
We spent 36 hours together, and before departing, Gow asked if I would come to England the following week. I agreed.
One month later, in Turkey, we decided to get married.
I went back to California and finished up a summer class before moving to England. Within 6 months, we headed to China where we would live and work (and plan a wedding).
We were married by my wonderful aunt, a Presbyterian minister on my grandparents' lawn. Gary designed both my dress and his shirt.
It was a small wedding, but my entire extended family turned out!
It was a very special day, complete with violins, a mini-concert given by my country/western father-in-law, and a pinata.
Happy Anniversary dear husband of mine. You rock my world, and have done since the day we met.
I am looking forward to celebrating a zillion more anniversaries with you.
For nostalgic purposes - link to my old MySpace blog. Full story, but quite long.
