My lady Kate and I have been together for 7 years now. Suddenly, only one short week ago, we decided to "make it official" and get married before the year's end. It all came together in short order, and last night there was a very nice private ceremony witnessed by a handful of friends.
We're hitched! We are now Mary Kate Daly (she's retaining her original name) and Randy Bowser, the happily married couple. No more wondering how to introduce each other, "I'd like you to meet--um--my boyfriend/girlfriend, my special person, my pet person, my signifcant other (Yikes!)..." Now it's a nice and simple, "Please meet my wife/husband." --Among other nice advantages to being married.
Don't send gifts, just money.
Here we are last night shortly before the officiant pronounced us wed.
