Every time I hear the word "Anniversary" I can't help but think of the Tony! Toni! Tone! song of the same name and sing the tune in my head (and usually out loud, poorly).  Sarah and I actually saw Tony! Toni! Tone! perform live on one of our first dates, which (now in retrospect) I realize was really sweet of her... agreeing to humor my 90s era musical tastes since I'm a little older - and shall we say, ahem, a bit more "urban" - made all that working out super hard (when we first met) to impress her worth it, haha.  

Wednesday was our third wedding anniversary, and while I tend to keep things like that fairly private I'm breaking that rule a bit tonight - so bear with me please.  It was a bit of a hectic day for us on Wednesday to say the least, and life demanded that we both be occupied in some stressful activities for most of our waking hours - any other day would have been no big deal, but I'm a little bummed it was on our actual anniversary date.  The good news is we got to come into the gym in the evening and coach some fun classes, and she was able to train even though she was exhausted.

And so now, instead of blogging my regularly planned material I'm going to post a picture that makes me smile instead, and then try to enjoy a few minutes spent with my wife before it's no longer our actual anniversary.   

Happy Anniversary, Sarah!  

Funny thing is she left these weightlifting shoes on after the photo and for the rest of the reception, since they were more comfortable than the high heels she was wearing for the wedding ceremony.
