happy and grateful

Working with the Dream Publication (dream pub for me, that is--it's no New Yorker or Atlantic or Oprah but it's a magazine I've read and loved since college) has not been the easiest--but I think that's been good for me. It's pushed me to do better even as parts of the process frustrated me. Even as I worked triple hard for about a third of the pay one might have expected on a piece like this. Honestly, I would have done some pay-to-play action to get in this mag, so whatevs.

And, now I am happy to say that the editor SAID I COULD PITCH HER AGAIN.

BRB crying happy tears.

Look at me being all happy and grateful for something. IT HAPPENS.

OH. And more importantly, today C. and I celebrate 19 years of being hitched.

Here's what I remember from that day:
Being slightly tipsy thanks to doing shots with LC and Cupcake Girl at a blues bar a few hours before the ceremony.

LC doing my hair because I'm stupid about such things.

Being so, so nervous.

Angel Boy escorting us downstairs to the bar (we got married in a bar--yes, the marriage is valid, thanks for asking. Actually it's a nightclub/bar and it's always been our favorite place to see bands AND I was booking bands there at the time and my best friend's family owns it so really this whole you-got-married-in-a-bar?!?! thing is kinda quaint)

Seeing so many people I love--friends, family--in one place and feeling overwhelmed with love--not just for C, but for everyone.

Being so, so nervous.

Love.

Nineteen years. Just like that. It feels like a lifetime has passed and, then again, it feels just like yesterday.

It's been quite the journey. Good, bad and everything in between. And here we are; we keep on keepin' on.

Hey, look at me being all happy and grateful.
