An Open Letter

To the person driving the white sedan:

I understand that you must have been in a tremendous hurry. Perhaps you were late for a dental appointment, or to pick someone up at the bus station. Perhaps your alarm clock didn’t go off and you were late for work. Believe me, I understand what it’s like to be in the car, late for something. It’s annoying. Or, maybe you were just having a bad day. I understand that, too. However, I would just like to politely remind you that pedestrians in the crosswalk always have the right-of-way. The next time you have to make a left turn and a mother with her two small children are crossing the street in front of you, DO NOT TO HONK AT THEM!!!

Safe travels!

Today was our 8th wedding anniversary.

I can hardly believe it’s been that long.

Our marriage has weathered its share of storms, but my life is better with him in it.

We celebrated

with balloons on the ceiling

and chocolate chip cookies.
