Commentary:

Sixteen years ago today, Elizabeth and I were married in a small garden ceremony at her grandmother’s house in Santa Ana, California. It was a happy, happy day as our families came together through marriage. And we had a fun honeymoon traveling up the coast to San Francisco (with a detour to not-so-scenic Sacramento to see the Grateful Dead at Cal Expo). After all these years, I remain deliriously in love with my wife and feel like the luckiest guy in the world to be married to this beautiful, amazing woman. We’ve had a wonderful life together and I look forward to many more years to come. To celebrate our anniversary, we’re going to go out to dinner at an exquisite little restaurant located right here in Kingston Springs called Mack & Kates, It should be delicious. Happy Anniversary, Liz!
