|Our wedding, May 5, 1994|
We declared on our marriage certificate that we would be married on 5/5 when we passed through 5,000 feet above Loveland, Colorado. Our Best Man was the videographer. This is the exact moment. We had already passed the Baton of Commitment back and forth to each other (in his left hand). I was wearing my brand-new jumpsuit with rainbow grippers for the first time. It ended up being worn many, many more times. After I had become an instructor, it would be the suit I would use for small female students, so it got a lot of use. Sometimes another instructor would ask if he could borrow "the wedding dress" for a student, as well.
Anyway, something worked: we are happier together today than we were when we took the leap. Since we were both in our fifties when we married, we are not likely to make it to gold, and we have no regrets, with many happy years behind us, and hopefully many more ahead.
