One year ago we were in New Hampshire getting married.  It was the wedding that should have taken place in San Francisco in November of 2008.

Actually, it was the wedding that should have taken place 16 or so years ago when all of our parents were alive to be there with us, but that was not to be.  Instead, it was a tiny gathering of fabulous friends officiated by the best damned JP in the state of New Hampshire, our dear friend, Marlene.

It was a great day.  We had forgotten our dress clothes and got married in blue jeans.  A much more fitting ceremony than fancy clothes.  Definitely a Tim and Victor Event.

After a few days on Cape Cod with our friend, Dana, it was back home.  A few days later another friend, Jessica, had a party and surprised us with a fabulously-delicious wedding cake!  And a 1st Anniversary Cupcake!

I froze and vacuum-packed the cupcake and last night brought it to the refrigerator to thaw.

For dinner, we had strip steaks with grilled onions, baked sweet potatoes, and roasted corn.  I considered doing burgers, but decided a steak really was more fitting for a First Anniversary – we can have burgers on our 17th Anniversary next month!

And just in time for our Anniversary, our new iPhones arrived today.

Fortunate doesn’t begin to describe us.
