"nobody gets married on Christmas eve!"

So we were told many many years ago.... but we did.  We had known each other 3 years while we each were with other people before those relationships broke up and then in one fast year the wife and I had a first date and got married a few months later...people said it was a rebound relationship, what a REBOUND!

It occurs to me that making jam represents us well.  Mustache Man economics describes a life on a dime, which I would summarize as "the things we do just don't happen to cost money, but they are rich and rewarding experiences" and many of them we do together.

My parents delivered a boatload of pears and apples Friday.  The wife and I love to make jam together, we chop, we stir, I always ladle the hot jam into jars, she cleans and closes them.

THAT is how we spent Sunday afternoon, making jars of apple cranberry and pear spice jam, which is SO delicious.

To the wife: there's a whole lotta jam under the bridge, thanks for all those years, looking forward to sharing a lot more PB and j's in the future!

How wonderful! I love that quote --it is so true. And doing things with someone you love is the best way to spend time. Happy Anniversary!
