Twelve years ago today, we stood in front of our family and friends, me in a rented tuxedo, Alix in a dress she made herself.

Twelve years ago today, we looked each other in the eye and said “I will.”

Twelve years ago today, we slow-danced while everyone blew bubbles at us.

Twelve years ago today, we got in my old convertible and drove off into a new world.

Twelve years ago today and I still can’t believe my luck.

  1. And all this time I was thinking that Alix was the lucky one! Congratulations on finding the happiness you deserve! I still can’t believe MY luck and blessing with James after almost 33 years together.

  2. …and may God Bless you with many, many more wonderful years. Nothing better than spending this life with your very best friend.

  3. Aw, you guys! Happy, happy anniversary – invite me to your 25th and 50th, will ya? And don’t forget – the 50ths are published in the Observer AT NO CHARGE! I have every faith that you’l be in there on July 11, 2048

  6. Congratulations to you and Mrs. Tomlinson. My husband and I just celebrated 35 years but we have been together for 40 if you count the “going steady” we did in Jr High and HS. Love your column in the CO but glad I found your website!
