Kevin and I were married at The Castaway in Burbank, California. Ironically enough, both the sky and sun was a deep, bright orange as there were widespread fires up in the hills of the valley. Our ceremony was held outside on the balcony and the wind just before sunset was blustery and strong. Finally, though, just as the ceremony started, the winds calmed down and it was peaceful. I was very grateful for that, especially considering the length of my train (15 feet!).
Our trip to Thailand is how we are celebrating, so we don’t really have any special plans made. Though, we did exchange gifts. I read that, traditionally, for the 4th wedding anniversary, one would give the gift of fruit or flowers. Not too bad, considering I love both! Nowadays, however, the typical modern gift is either an appliance or linens and silks. Kevin took the “appliance” part to heart and I received an 8 gig iPod Nano!
It looks bigger than it really is, because everything looks bigger in my tiny hands. It’s incredibly thin and insanely easy to use. I’ve already uploaded over half of my music library and… oh… about 20+ podcasts. That ought to last me the 12 days of our trip to Thailand, right? :o
