Happy Anniversary James!
Meet James. James, blog readers-blog readers-James. I tried to pick photos that show you a little about the person he was, so maybe you can understand the man he is today. Let's start with the suspenders picture. James is an old soul-he is cute in this picture, but doesn't he look kinda like a miniature man? Then there is the boca burger one; a vegetarian for almost ten years-James was vegan for most of them. Not the easiest thing when you are born and raised in cattle country. He was vegan before it was cool. He has such a big heart, that's why-oh-now I am gushing. Ok, now the microphone one. Yes, he is SCREAMING into the microphone. Didn't I tell you? He's been a member of a band in one form or another since the age of 12 and most of those bands were post-punk hardcore (=screaming). Not exactly my cup of tea, but it amazingly kept he and his friends out of drugs and into activism which is cool with me. The mummy picture-that's just here for the cute factor. The guitar picture was the begining of his "Kurt Cobain" phase. The bottom left picture is a random weird polaroid. Now look to the right and you'll notice two broken arms and some missing teeth. Poor James-he's smiles through the worst of times. In the middle is a random picture from our wedding day, isn't he cute? That was October 4, 2003. Our favors were cds with our favorite songs including some belle and sebastion, pavement, neutral milk hotel, and liz phair. The "groom's cake" was a tower of chocolate donuts with pink frosting (our colors) and my wedding dress was a 1950's cocktail dress. It was a lot of fun, and it has only gotten better. I hate to brag, but I love James so much. He is my best friend; a great listener and nice on the eyes. We take care of each other and are both so brutally honest that it works-really well. I love you James-thanks for the good times-hers's to many more!
