I realize there aren’t really any wedding pictures of us online, since we are SO OLD that digital photography was only starting to be a thing*.
And what good are wedding pictures if you keep them to yourself and nobody can see what you looked like with a goatee? (That would be me, not Sara…still awaiting pictures of what Sara would look like in a goatee.)
Me: “Who’s that?”
Me: “No, it’s not a baby. Who’s that?”
Me: “No, is not a baby! That’s dada!”
Alex: “Baby dada.”
You know, when we got married everybody said, “Are you going to shave your goatee?” and I said, “No, why would I shave my goatee? That is what I look like.” I mean, if everybody was so desperate for me to look like somebody else, I could have worn a Nixon mask or something.
Then like a month later I shaved my goatee and have never had one since.
Now you might think this proves the naysayers right, however, I kind of like the fact that when I look back on these pictures now I look young, and foolish, and so 2004. I mean Sara just looks beautiful, and timeless, and basically the same, so what’s the fun in that? Might as well just look at a current picture.
Anyway, here’s to lucky 13. May we look back on pictures of ourselves after another 13 years of marriage and laugh about how ridiculous we look, the way we look back on pictures of 2004.
*Whoops, looks like I posted a much better picture already at 10 years. Good thing I have this blog to keep me honest.
