I have given birth to nerd-dom.

Today is my daughter’s second wedding anniversary, and the blog post she wrote confirms what I already knew: She’s as big a geek as her mom, and she found herself a geek to marry, too. You can tell by the gifts they wanted.

I won’t say what the gifts are because, obviously, I want you to read about it in her words, not mine.

I will say this: At least they’re thrifty nerds.

And to Abby and Tim: I can only say how much I admire your fortitude. Not only because you’ve manged to live together for more than three years without serious mayhem. (Don’t think that’s not a big deal, though, given what I know about the both of you.) No, I’m talking about the health crises and unemployment and family issues and more than your share of tough breaks.

Through it all you’ve held on to what matters most: Each other.

Long may it continue. For the rest of your lives, even.

Happy anniversary.

Love, Mom

  1. That is So cute! My 22nd anniversary is coming up this weekend and I have no clue what to give him… We have to be frugal too. Oh! I have an idea now! THanks!

  2. Wow, it sounds like they have been through a lot! Glad they have no problem with “frugal” gifts…it makes things a whole lot easier! 🙂

    @Sharon: Not to sound too corny, but they know that the biggest and best gift they’ll ever receive is…each other.
    Thanks for reading.

  4. I never realised Abigail was your daughter! You guys are two of a kind.

  5. I didn’t know Abigail was your daughter! What a small world!
