…my husband.

Nine years ago today you bravely waited at the front of the church for me to walk down the aisle to you. In many ways, we barely knew each other. Yet, in other ways, because you were in Korea for most of our engagement problem, we knew each other well because we talked almost daily.

Corny as it sounds, I think our hearts recognized a like spirit from the day we met. It didn’t take long for the minds above to catch up and we knew there was no reason to waste time with something that seemed right and good.

We’ve definitely had our ups and downs. Thanks for sticking with it. You’ve shown that steadiness and loyalty that was one of the things I noticed at the start. And I like the laughter and fun that have always been there, even when things are tough.

Our life has changed over the years and I thank you for supporting my various endeavors. I would not be where I am today without your support and help. When I feel like the rest of the world is against me, you are always in my corner. Even when I’m off roaming the continent, I feel sure that you are thinking about me and caring about me.

I love you. I value you. And I look forward to whatever our future holds for us.

Happy Anniversary!

Politics. That’s what I’m not talking about. As a moderate conservative, it’s best to keep my thoughts to myself, at least in the world of academia.

Instead, I’d like to ask what is an energy envelope? I heard this term on NPR this morning. There have been some funny terms come out of the whole global warming/energy crisis hoopla. Meat footprint is one my favorite phrases. I envision a big footprint (think Yeti on steroids) covered in bacon or some sort of lunchmeat. I love some of these new phrases because of the pictures they create in my mind.

Any words or phrases out there that give you fun/odd mind images?
