This time 15 years ago, Andy and I had just arrived in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for our honeymoon. We didn't even go see Dollywood, but it was still a great honeymoon.
To celebrate our 15th, Andy took me to Lawrence to one of our favorite restaurants, La Parrilla, for some super Brazilian food. Here we are in front of the restaurant in a shot combined from two iphone pictures. We did some more shopping at Sharks Surf for cool shoes, the Buckle where I got a Free People top, Urban Outfitters for a new sweater to replace one I lost in a taxi in New York, used cds for Andy, Starbucks for me and Coldstone Creamery for Andy.
We stopped in a coffee shop where an interesting gentleman commented on our anniversary celebration by asking if we had heard the Greek myth about marriage. He said that man and woman used to be one being, but the gods became jealous because of how perfect and self-sufficient the beings were. The gods split the beings into two halves - man and woman - who now spend their lives searching for their other half. I'm not searching. I've found my other half.
Here is what Andy said being married for 15 years on his blog.
On our way home, I made a random comment about how great our cat is. She doesn't have a litter box, but she just goes to the door when she needs to go potty. That was foreshadowing at it's finest. When we arrived home to a kidless house on our anniversary night, we discovered our cat had done the trifecta on our bed. Numbers 1, 2 and 3. Quite a memorable ending to our special night.
