It’s our 11th anniversary today, Simon. ELEVEN YEARS. Gone in a blink of an eye, a batting of an eyelash. We’ve seen so much in these years together, and I’m consistently reminded of the image of iron sharpening iron. That’s what we are together. We’ve covered a lot of ground in our eleven years of marriage, and it was fun to make to take a look at how far we’ve come.
