Old Enough to Drive

My marriage is old enough to drive.

Mr. Rix and I celebrated our 16th Wedding Anniversary on Friday. I'm a lucky woman.

And, in our usual fashion, we partied hard till the wee hours of the night. These days that means watching DVR'd episodes of Bones and House and hittin' the sack at about 9:00. As well fell asleep, he asked me again if I'd marry him.

See, the night he proposed was only about 4 months after we started dating and after his sister's wedding reception. After he got down on a knee (accidentally?) in the parking lot of the Town and Country Motel in Streator, IL, I told him to ask me again when he was sober. You know what? He's asked me to marry him every night since then.

It's been a wild ride, baby, and I can't wait to see where it goes next.
