    The ten best years of my life

    September 29, 2001 was the day that I married my soulmate, Jennifer Jang. It was easily the happiest day of my life up until that point.

    Every day since then has been happier.

    People say that relationships are hard, but that’s not really true. When you are committed to a partner for the long term, you have an amazing number of opportunities to practice and improve the relationship. Of course, you have an equal number of chances to let the relationship wither on the vine.

    We chose the former path, and it has made all the difference.

    I can’t even begin to describe the number of ways that my life has improved by being married to such a wonderful person. People sometimes refer to their spouse as the "ball and chain". I really dislike this metaphor.

    I think of Jen as my wings. Without her, sure, I’d still be alive, I’d still be a person living on the planet.

    But with her, I can fly.

    Happy anniversary, sweetie.
