We were married 16 years ago today — we’ve been together for over 22 years now! Because of Covid, we couldn’t go out for a nice dinner together but we did the next-best thing: we picked up takeout from Carrello. The kids had their favorite pizza and then watched a movie downstairs while we had our dinner outside in the backyard.
Way back at the beginning of the Covid quarantine, when we thought it’d last 2-3 months at most, Gay organized a trip to Lake Wenatchee for us and four other families.
As the date approached and Covid is still rampant, we were all concerned that we’d be like one of those groups of people who don’t believe in science and end up infecting each other. Everyone self-quarantined for two weeks beforehand (I never stopped!) to reduce the risk. In the end, everyone stayed healthy.
