Today is March 14.
Do you know why I love Pi Day so much?
It’s because of what happened on this day back in 2003.
It’s the day my fabulous Bryan and I finally tied the knot. Yup. Pi Day is our anniversary!
We’re celebrating 13 years today. I’m so in love with this man, and can’t imagine life without him!
Some Crazy Answers to FAQs–Just in Case You Wondered!
Sharing a bit of our story, here’s some facts about our Pi Day Anniversary.
Why Did We Get Married on Pi Day?
We actually didn’t plan to get married on Pi Day, it just sort of happened. Bryan got approved for leave between his Navy A School and his first assignment in San Diego.
The next day was my Grandpa’s birthday celebration, so a lot of my family was already in town.
It just made sense.
Even though we didn’t pick it on purpose, it works for us. My husband loves math. I love pie.
Pi Day was the perfect day for us to get married!
Q. What’s Been Your Favorite Anniversary So Far?
A. Our first one. It was certainly memorable!
I left Jayme with Grandma and hopped on an airplane to San Diego. It was my first time on a plane. I may have hugged a palm tree in the airport parking lot. 🙂
My carry on for that trip?
A shoe box with the top tier of our wedding cake. I didn’t want to risk it getting ruined in my luggage after all!
Bryan’s barracks roommates were out for the weekend, so we chilled there (saving money with no hotel!)
We walked to the commissary and bought some TV dinners. We celebrated with frozen food and TV, and of course by eating the top of our cake. It didn’t taste as bad as we thought it would after hanging out in my freezer for a whole year.
Remember–it’s not what you do, it’s who you’re with!
Q. Why Did You Have to Fly to Go See Your Husband?
A. Good question!
I had a full-ride scholarship to Eastern Washington University. That’s up in Washington in case you wondered.
Bryan was in the Navy. He was stationed at NAS North Island. That’s down in California in case you wondered–by San Diego.
If I didn’t stay in Washington going to school, I lost my scholarship. I wanted to be a teacher. We didn’t want to pay for it out of pocket.
So we lived apart for the first couple years.
Our plan was for me to get my degree, so Bryan could get out of the Navy and go to school while I taught.
During our first year of marriage, we saw each other only a handful of times, when Bryan hopped in the car and drove for 24 hours straight to make it up.
It was a hard year!
Our plans didn’t work out quite like we thought, but that’s okay. I love the life we have now!
