Where were we eighteen years ago?

Eighteen years. That’s how long Binita and I have been married. Today is our anniversary. Today is October 1, 2013. Eighteen years have gone by in a blink of an eye, yet 1995 seems in the distant past. It was just after we got married that we visited Arizona and Mexico for our honeymoon. It was then that I said, “Why do we have to visit this place, why can’t we live here?” We lived in Michigan back then, but by 1998 we had moved to Scottsdale. I couldn’t handle the cold in Michigan. I love the heat here (although anything about 105 degrees is a bit too hot).

We celebrated by going to our favorite sushi restaurant called Pure. Their Fire Dragon rolls and their Sunshine rolls (with fresh mango) are quite delicious. We sat outside and talked for a while about how fate brought us together and how things have transpired over the past decades. We’ve had our ups and downs but with a bit of luck and a lot of patience (mostly on Binita’s part), we are happy! Life is good.

Just before going to Pure, I got on my trainer for just short of 90 minutes. I didn’t go too hard because tomorrow I have to run for more than two and a half hours!
