My wife and I will be celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary later this month. Following our wedding, I wrote about some of the more memorable moments and posted them on a blog that no long exists.
As our anniversary approaches, I’ve decided to re-post some of those wedding memories here as a means of preserving them as well as sharing them with readers.
Here is the third of these posts:
Here’s one of many favorite wedding moments:
I made several toasts at our wedding, including one to Elysha’s grandmother, one to my mother and father-in-law, and one to all of my friends.
The only family member present for my nuptials was my sister, so I wanted to let my many friends know how important they are in my life. They really are like family to me.
In toasting my friends, I said, “To quote the famous philosopher… the famous Jewish philosopher, Kyle Broflovski…”
(At this, several of Elysha’s relatives nod in Jewish approval)
“…Family isn’t about whose blood you have. It’s about who you care about.”
The philosopher who I referenced is Jewish, but he is also animated.
My friends found this very amusing.
