The Big Day

I apologize to my dear readers for the lack of updates recently. If you haven't heard the big news already, my funny girlfriend is now my...funny WIFE! I know right? You can't believe it either. After putting up with so much of her craziness I married her anyway. It's really surprising to me too as I never thought I would get married but after being together for 6 years I knew she was the one for me. To be honest, I didn't think I was ready for marriage but sometimes a near-death experience puts everything into perspective. Right at that instant your life just flashes before you and you come to the realization that life is short and there's so much more that you want to accomplish. It happened while we were driving back from Vermont during a bad snow storm this past winter. It was nearly 1am and the snow had already accumulated a good 5 inches on the slippery road. I kept squinting my eyes to keep them focused on the now barely visible line dividing the twisting country road. My gf sat quietly in the passenger seat. Out of nowhere she blurts out "marry me or I'll kill you." There was something so compelling in that statement that we got hitched not long after that night.
