Last night [ profile] lapsedagnostic and I saw the musical "Wicked" at the Kennedy Center as our (late) 15th anniversary present. It was awesome! The stage had a beautiful map of OZ as the curtain and the biggest mechanical dragon above the stage I've seen. Both leads that played Elphaba and Glinda (the Guuuuuh is silent *lol*) were amazing. I don't know which performance this was for them, but it might as well of been their first. The energy and joy they put into their performance was transporting.... it made being in Oz a believable experience.

Other than the song "Defying Gravity" - this isn't the kind of musical where the music leaves you humming along after - but the songs are an integral part of the story and how it moves along. The characters were all strong as were the actors that played them.

Given the chance, I would see it again in a heartbeat :) If you can find the tickets and the time ... I highly recommend seeing it before it leaves the DC area.

It was a day very similar to this one ....

Fifteen years ago today we stood in front of our friends and family and made each other laugh and cry with our vows. It still feels like yesterday.

I love you babe. Happy Anniversary and thank you for all these wonderful years .. and for those yet to come...

Dance with my love

Thirteen years ago today we spoke the vows of our hearts. You once said to me "I'm looking forward to richer and simpler times" ... we have that. And yet there still a richness and complexity that amazes us both.

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend,
Lucky to have been where we have been,
Lucky to be coming home again .....

I love you so much ... I'm so lucky to have you.

And it really is "Always Better When We're Together". I love you so very much!

There's no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a, shoebox of photographs
With sepiatone loving
Love is the answer,
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing it's always better when we're together


MMM it's always better when we're together
Yeah, we'll look at the stars when we're together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

And all of these moments
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they'll be gone
When the morning light sings
And brings new things
For tomorrow night you see
That they'll be gone too
Too many things I have to do
But if all of these dreams might find their way
Into my day to day scene
I'd be under the impression
I was somewhere in between
With only two
Just me and you
Not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be
We'll Sit beneath the mango tree now

It's always better when we're together
Mmmm, we're somewhere in between together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

MMmmmm MMMmmmm Mmmmmm
I believe in memories
They look so, so pretty when I sleep
Hey now, and when I wake up,
You look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time,
And there is no, no song I could sing
And there is no, combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing<
We're better together.

Was it in Tahiti? Were we on the Nile? Long, long ago ... Say an hour or so .... I recall that I saw your smile
I remember you .... you're the one who made my dreams come true ... a few ..kisses ago
I remember you ... You're the one said .... "I love you too" I do. Didn't your know?
I remember too ... A distant bell .... And stars that fell like rain ...out of the blue.
When my life is through ... and the angels ask me to recall .... The thrill of them all ... then I shall tell them .. I remember You.
(Song: I remember You - Nat King Cole)

I love you babe. Happy Anniversary

10 years ago today ....

We woke up in your parents house to a bower of beautiful white flowers that bloomed that morning just for us, and disappeared the next day.

Not long afterwards there began a flurry of activity that would last all day, but I don't think we noticed it much....

By mid-afternoon our friends had family had started gathering to share with us a celebration of a journey we had begun 4 years before....

And so I say to you today, the vows I said to you 10 years ago under the sun and trees (and cicadas!) at your parents home.

*we used our real names :)

I Mym*, take you Quasi* to be my husband
To live with you and laugh with you
To stand by your side and sleep in your arms
To challenge your mind and delight you with the unexpected
To bring out the best in you, and to always be the most I can
To let you be both strong and weak
To trust you with all that I am, and to be worthy of that trust from you
To be joyful with you, and share your sorrows
To help you when you're down, to wipe your tears with my hands
To comfort you with my body and mirror you with my soul
To play with you as often as possible
To always be amazed at what we have
To follow this path where ever it leads, whatever the outcome, no matter what
To grow old with you and love only you
With all my heart until the end of time
This is my solemn vow

Happy 10th Anniversary, my love ... my heart....

I love you
