And it just keeps getting better and better....


It was seven years ago today that my lovely bride literally became "my bride" and said "I do" in front of the minister in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Ca.  It was a wonderful destination wedding for the two of us....we didn't tell anyone else until the deed was done.

Our trip began rather ominously when our airplane couldn't take off from Dallas due to a flat tire.  They finally found a jack big enough to lift a fully-loaded 767 and we departed for San Francisco. 


It was a beautiful drive down to the Monterrey Peninsula and our accommodations at the Tickle Pink Inn.  (Don't laugh, it is a VERY nice place high on a hillside overlooking the Pacific.)  

We did all the usual sightseeing....Pebble Beach, San Simeon, Big Sur, enjoyed a spirited drive down the winding Pacific Coast Hwy (I enjoyed it, K turned green), etc, but discovered that just sitting at a sidewalk cafe was pretty much the height of leisurely enjoyment. 


Being the architecture aficionado I am I enjoyed seeing all the storybook homes in town (thanks for indulging me, K), and walking down Carmel's Main St, which was all decorated for Christmas, was a joy.  (Did I just say looking at Christmas decorations was a joy?  *snap out of it Dude!*)

Now here we are seven years later and she's still talking to me, and actually even seems to enjoy it. She's certainly more than I deserve.  



I doubt life can get any better.  

I love you Kelly.  Happy Anniversary.  :)

  2. It must be love if she stays with you even with that shirt!

    Congratulations to both of you.
    Oh and Scott, you say seven...Kelly says eight...I'm guessing it is eight.

    1. Thanks, Joe. Yes, I'm fashioned challenged.

      She's counting the year before we were married, too. We've been married for 7. I'm pretty sure. Yes, it's 7. :)

  3. Happy Anniversary to both of you. It's a wonderful world because you two found each other. Here's something else we have in common; Mrs. C. and I also honeymooned in Carmel. Take care.

    1. Another of those "great minds think alike" things, right? :)

  4. Happy day to you and your lovely bride. Carmel is just 2 hours from where we live and my bride and I enjoy romantic get aways there. You chose a wonderful spot to celebrate your union.

  5. Hey! Happy anniversary, you two. Great picture, by the way, and I love the shirt. How small a world this is. My uncle who lived in San Francisco most of his life was married twice in Carmel (to the same woman!) The two of them loved the place and vacationed there often.

  6. Happy anniversary, kids! It's been a treat to be part of your romance from the early days. Carry on!

  7. Happy anniversary to you and Kelly! I love your wedding story and the fact you didn't tell anyone ahead of time. Dave and I got married in Vegas and the only ones who knew about it ahead of time were his parents.

  8. I love that picture of the two of you! As you know, we were married on December 15, but our honeymoon was probably a bit colder than yours - we were in the mountains of western NC :)
