Simple Equation

Dear Beth,

Can you believe we've been married for eight years (and together almost 15) and no one's been seriously injured (other than the ice cream incident which was really just a freak accident and my own damn fault)? We'll just have to dance in the kitchen more and tempt fate.

I love you Sparky. Happy anniversary.

Happy Anniversary, you guys! Love the pictorial equation.

Posted by: Missy at October 9, 2007 7:15 AM

Aww! Happy Anniversary to you two. The equation is cute.

Posted by: Stephanie at October 9, 2007 7:19 AM

Awwwww, congratulations!! 15 years is a loooong time. You bring hope to a world full of divorce and "starter marriages".

Good for you! I hope you get to go out and have some fun!

OMG! Cutest post ever! Happy Anniversary Fish/Cactus!

Posted by: Pocklock at October 9, 2007 11:36 AM

That ice cream thing was before we were married, doesn't even count.

Posted by: Mrs. Cactus at October 9, 2007 12:11 PM

Beautiful. You guys remind me of my parents sometimes. They've been together for 42 years, married for almost 37 (December), and they still celebrate their first date. Still crazy in love with each other.

Happy anniversary!

Posted by: Sparkle Pants at October 9, 2007 12:57 PM

Happy Anniversary you two.

Posted by: Phoenix at October 9, 2007 1:28 PM

Oh! Happy Anniversary you two! (We count the years we've been together too... why not?)

To many more good days in your future~~

Now I want to hear about this freak ice cream accident. :)

Posted by: Tink at October 9, 2007 1:44 PM

Congratulations! That's impressive in this day and age!

Posted by: betty at October 9, 2007 1:53 PM

Congrats and happy annversary! I just read that the traditional gift is bronze. I wanted to say something witty and bronez-y but I've got nothing.

Posted by: Gwen at October 9, 2007 2:06 PM

Love the graphical representation! Congratulatios to both of you on number eight! Here's to many more!

Posted by: Michelle at October 9, 2007 2:35 PM

Happy Anniversary! Cheers!!!

Posted by: Li'l Foot's Mommy at October 9, 2007 4:03 PM

Aw :-) That's a very cute equation, there. Like I told Beth - you two fit in well with my family this week, since yesterday was my Grandparents' 58th, and today my little sister's 18th birthday. Congratulations on making it past the seven year itch, or some nonsense like that.
And just to add, as a kid of divorced parents (it would've been their 30th yesterday, too) it's so nice to see sappy folks like you ;-)

Posted by: Heather at October 9, 2007 4:50 PM

Hooray! Congrats on continuing to buck trends. Amazing to think that you'll have TWO children by your 9th anniversary!

Posted by: Betti at October 9, 2007 4:55 PM

Happy Anniversary!!

Posted by: Adi at October 9, 2007 7:38 PM

Happy Anniversary!!

Posted by: Colleen at October 9, 2007 10:01 PM

Looking at that picture it's a wonder there's been no serious injury. I mean a fish and a cactus? How can that even work?

And yet it clearly does.

Keep on rocking on.

Posted by: Elaine at October 9, 2007 10:32 PM

Awww :)

Posted by: Peggy at October 9, 2007 10:50 PM

Happy Anniversary! You two make a good commercial for marriage.

Posted by: wordgirl at October 9, 2007 11:41 PM

Happy anniversary! 1999 was a good year to get hitched, that's when me and my hubby tied the knot too. :)

Posted by: Teenuh at October 10, 2007 12:27 AM

I love it.

Happy anniversary.

Posted by: aimee/greeblemonkey at October 10, 2007 1:23 AM

Happy Anniversary to the loveliest cyber-couple I know. You two really complement (or is it compliment) each other.

I am late... but I hope your anniversary was awesome!!!

Posted by: Tammy at October 11, 2007 4:53 PM

As someone who is just entering into her 7th year of marriage and *maybe* feeling the "itch"...I'm happy to hear of another couple making it past that damn 7th year.

Congrats and best of luck to an extra bright future!
