7 years after first meeting, we celebrated our first wedding anniversary.

The address of our first home was 2635 {2+6+3+5=16; 1+6=7}, and our townhouse number was 907.

Bret graduated with his Ph.D. and we made our first major move as a family from Florida to Alabama in 2007.

Our first child, Gillian Grace, was born on 7/20/09.

And today, Bret and I are celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary.

Looks like the odds are in our favor for a long and happy marriage!
